The Boston Celtics’ playoff run might not have hurt their chances of continuing their rebuilding process during the upcoming draft.
The C’s reportedly have interviewed players who are top 10 candidates in the 2015 NBA draft, including Duke product Justise Winslow and Kentucky center Willie Cauley-Stein, the Boston Herald’s Mark Murphy reported Thursday. Murphy added that the Celtics’ plethora of interviews are a “good sign” they may trade up in the draft.
The Celtics currently own the 16th and 28th picks in the June 25th draft — they received the latter from the Los Angeles Clippers as compensation for coach Doc Rivers — but they actually have an insane amount of picks in the future that they could use as leverage to move up. In addition to the two first-round and three second-round picks in this year’s draft, Boston owns four first- and second-round selections in 2016.
