Celtics aggressively trying to break into the top 10 a day before the draft.

On the eve of draft day, ESPN’s Ryen Russillo reported that the Celtics are one of the teams “aggressively” looking to move into the top 10.

With a draft loaded with promising big men, there’s no surprise that the Celtics, who could use some youth in their frontcourt, are interested.

A potential team to watch here are the Orlando Magic who are very interested in attaining a point guard and have been reported to be a bit of a mystery in who they may be interested in. A potential package of Terry Rozier, 2019 1st round Sacramento Kings pick, and the Celtics 27th selection gives the Magic a promising point guard prospect, a potential lottery pick, and another first rounder to add to their roster.

As the draft approaches, expect more information to become available.
