It has seemed that with every day that passes, a new name has been associated with the Celtics at the #3 pick. One day it is Murray, the next it is Hield, the next it is Chriss, then it is Bender. Today the leaning seems to be going towards Kris Dunn, with some thinking of Jaylen Brown as well.
Multiple mock drafts, Andy Katz, and Jeff Goodman all seem to be pointing at Dunn for the Celtics.
The two guys that Ainge and Celtics really like if they keep the No. 3 pick are Kris Dunn and Jaylen Brown, sources told ESPN.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) June 23, 2016
Kris Dunn and Jaylen Brown both bring a toughness and a mentality that would fit in well with guys like Crowder, Bradley, Smart.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) June 23, 2016
This may change 20 more times in the next 24 hours or it may all be posturing for a trade. We’ll find out for sure tomorrow.
