Let’s get you up to speed on the draft day trade rumors, workouts and mock drafts:
Later in the first round, the Celtics are trying to pick up a late-first or early-second-round pick. Sources say their target is Missouri’s Phil Pressey if they decide to go big with their first pick in the draft.
Phil Pressey is a 5-11 point guard out of Missouri. Here’s a scouting report. Old-timers like myself will recognize the name and yes, his father is former Bucks swingman Paul Pressey.
In event Boston moves back from No. 16, Danny Ainge brought guard Ray McCallum to facility for workout on Wednesday, league sources tell Y!
Ray McCallum is a 6-2 point guard from Detroit. Here’s his scouting report.
