Kelly Olynyk Traded to Celtics in Draft-Night Deal With Mavericks (Video)


The Boston Celtics have reportedly made a trade with the Dallas Mavericks to acquire former Gonzaga power forward Kelly Olynyk.

Olynyk, whom the Mavericks took with the No. 13 pick in the draft, will be heading to Boston in exchange for No. 16 pick Lucas Nogueira, whom Dallas promptly traded to Atlanta, according to reports, and two future second-round picks.

After redshirting in 2011-2012, Olynyk returned for his junior season and averaged 17.8 points and 7.3 rebounds. He helped lead the Bulldogs to the No. 1 ranking in the country and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, where they were eliminated in the Round of 32.

Check out some of Olynyk’s college highlights in the video below.
