Despite downplaying the importance of the picks, the Celtics continue workouts.
The Celtics worked out five players Saturday in preparation for the June 24 draft, including Jeremiah Rivers, the son of Celtics coach Doc Rivers. Malcolm Lee (UCLA), Chris Wright (Georgetown), Anthony Gurley (UMass) and Demonte Harper (Morehead State) also participated. The Celtics have the 25th pick and 55th picks in the draft.
For clarification, Jeremiah is the son that went to Georgetown then transferred to Indiana, not the one that is headed to Duke next year and might just be the top recruit in the country right now. That would be Austin Rivers. Would the Celtics draft Doc's son in the 2nd round just to make Doc happy? I don't know, would they hire Danny's son to be a D-League coach and then promote him to a position with the Celtics? Just sayin'.
