NBA Rumors: Buddy Hield Wows Celtics By Hitting 85 Of 100 3-Point Shots At Workout

Kentucky guard Jamal Murray reportedly dropped 79 of 100 3-point shots he took at a recent pre-NBA Draft workout for the Boston Celtics, but Oklahoma guard Buddy Hield appears to have him beat.

Hield shot 45.7 percent from 3-point land during his senior season for the Sooners, which was a career high and the first time he had shot better than 40 percent from that range in a single season.

Still, hitting 85 threes in any workout is quite impressive, especially if these attempts were from NBA distance.

Hield is among the Celtics’ top options with the No. 3 pick in this month’s draft, assuming they don’t trade it as part of a deal for a superstar, such as Chicago Bulls forward Jimmy Butler.

The Celtics don’t really need another guard, though, and they used the sixth overall pick in 2013 to select Oklahoma State point guard Marcus Smart.
