Draft day update: Ainge looking for late 1st rounder, mock draft wrap up


Let’s get you up to speed on the draft day trade rumors, workouts and mock drafts:

ESPN’s Chad Ford:

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.

Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski:

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.

As for the mock drafts:

Sports Illustrated Jamal Franklin, SG, San Diego St
ESPN Kelly Olynyk, C, Gonzaga
Draft Express/Yahoo Shane Larkin, PG, Miami
USA Today Larkin
CBS Sports Mason Plumlee, C, Duke
Dennis Schroeder, PG, Germany
Hoops Hype Schroeder
Hoopsworld Steven Adams, C, Pittsburgh
Sergey Karasev, SF, Russia
Gorgui Deng, C, Louisville

    I want Deng by the way

    Man…we could get ANYTHING it seems like. I’m leaning towards a big or a SG personally.

      That’s why I hope they get Shabazz. He’s a little bit of a risk but he has the potential to explode into an all star.

    Dieng or Muhammed. Maybe Schroeder.

    I like Myck Kabongo

    Was Pressey {5`11″} adopted??

    His daddy {Paul} was at least 6`5″-6`6″

    Shabazz! Such a steal if we get him! We need points!
