The 1968 NBA Expansion draft was held today, in which Boston lost several players of note to help populate the rosters of the newly-formed Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns.

All three players taken from the Celtics were drafted by the Bucks, starting with wing Tom Thacker.

Watts averaged 1.4 points, as many rebounds and 0.1 assists per game in the 28 games he played for the Celtics between 1965 and 1967.
