Though the Boston Celtics have but one pick in the 2021 NBA draft taking place at the end of next month, the team is still working out a range of prospects.
Reports from Forbes Sports’ Chris Grenham link two new prospects and KSTP’s Darren Wolfson another to the Celtics in recent pre-draft workouts projected to go anywhere from the late lottery in the first round of the draft to the start of the second.
He’s still raw as a latecomer to the game and needs to work on his shooting away from the basket to truly unlock his potential, but is an intriguing prospect who averaged 8.8 points and 4.8 boards per game with the Longhorns as a sophomore in 2020-21.
Trey Murphy III
Murphy is a lights-out shooter who might be the best at that craft in this year’s draft, hitting 43.3% from beyond the arc with the Cavaliers in 2020-21 at 4.8 attempts per game.
