Report: Cs looking to deal pick for younger player

ESPN's Chad Forde has the latest on the Celtics draft plans:

The Boston Celtics are taking a hard look at Marquette's Jimmy Butler and Boston College's Reggie Jackson with the 25th pick in the draft. But there's another potential option for the Celtics.

The team is open to moving out of the draft altogether if they can trade their pick for a young player. The Celtics have a $2.4 million trade exception that would allow them to take back a young player without having to send anything in return other than the 25th pick.

The obvious question is… Which younger player?

    Doesn’t sound likely. More likely is old vet coming back for the pick (think Grant Hill, Antonio McDyss)
