The Celtics continue to work out second round projected point guards. The latest of which is Northeastern guard Jon Lee. In fact, it was Lee's second workout with the team in the last week - for what it is worth.

Lee said he went through 3-on-3 drills and a lot of individual work with the watchful eye of Doc Rivers, Danny Ainge and most of the Celtics coaching staff in attendance. He said he met with Jason Terry, who was in rehabbing his knee after arthroscopic surgery, and also worked out with a handful of other future NBA prospects, including German point guard Dennis Schroeder.

Lee joins a list of second round projected point guards worked out by the team that includes Peyton Siva, Phil Pressey, Pierre Jackson, and Myck Kabongo as well as first round projected Shane Larkin.

Another name to keep an eye on is Mason Plumlee, who Kevin O'Connor profiled last month.

...the session included Duke center Mason Plumlee, Miami center Reggie Johnson, and Belmont guard Ian Clark. Lee, Johnson, and Clark fall into the growing list of players projected to be selected in the second round (or undrafted) that the team has worked out, but 7-foot Plumlee is a mid-first round prospect and the type of big man the Celtics could potentially have their eyes on with their lone current pick at No. 16 (Plumlee was pegged at No. 20 in Chad Ford's latest mock, which also makes you wonder if the C's might consider shuffling back a couple spots if they could pick up a second-round selection in the process).

It certainly sounds like Ainge at least has some options to pick up a second rounder in the draft. Or at the very least he's doing some extra due diligence on guys that might just drop out of the draft and be available as rookie free agents.
