Boston has to make decisions on several big-name free agents, including Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Brandon Bass. The Celtics also have the luxury of back-to-back picks in the 2012 NBA draft.
Celtics president Danny Ainge has little time remaining until the draft begins on June 28, when he will have to make decisions on how to use the 21st and 22nd overall picks.
The Celtics have a dire need down low, a need that many speculate will be filled via the draft. While it is safe to assume that Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley and Paul Pierce will be suiting up at the start of next season, the same cannot be said about big men Garnett and Bass at this point.
While many predictions are floating around about who the Celtics will take in the draft, the most likely pick at this point seems to be Iowa State's Royce White, who some say the Celtics promised to draft. Others think Boston will fill a void at center and take Syracuse University 7-footer Fab Melo. But then there are some who say the Celtics should take the safe pick of Andrew Nicholson from St. Bonaventure.
Instead of spending time comparing dozens of mock drafts, make the decision for yourself. Check out video highlights of the potential picks the Celtics could make.
