The Boston Celtics are one of the few teams that hold two first round picks in next month’s 2014 NBA Draft.
The Celtics hold both the sixth-overall pick (after finishing with the fifth-worst record and then being jumped by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA’s Draft Lottery) and the 17th-overall pick (acquired from the Brooklyn Nets when the Celtics sent Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to the Nets).
On Sunday, it was reported that the Boston Celtics would be working out former UCLA Bruins’ guard Kyle Anderson and former Connecticut Huskies’ forward DeAndre Daniels. Then, on Tuesday, a report surfaced that former North Carolina Tar Heels and Texas Legends’ guard P.J. Hairston.
Adams averaged 17.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.6 steals and 2.3 assists per game last season while Daniels went for 13.1 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game. Hairston averaged 21.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 32.3 minutes per game in 26 appearances for the Legends.
According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com, those workouts will take place on Tuesday, June 3. Joining Anderson, Daniels and Hairston will be former North Carolina State Wolfpack forward T.J. Warren and former Wichita State Shockers’ forward Cleanthony Early.
