The Celtics have surfaced as potential suitors for Memphis' #2 pick in the draft:
As the rumor mill churns, the Griz have been approached by several
teams about acquiring the second overall pick. Boston, Houston and New
York are said to be among the most recent suitors.

There are rumors and then there are rumors. We found this one on the RealGM message boards, posted by someone with a reputation for having inside information. I'll need a shower after posting this, but here it is:
For those wondering, Willie Green is a 6-3 swingman who averaged 8 ppg last season. Other than that, I don't know much about his game.
