The Celtics will host 12 players for pre-draft workouts Monday. Here’s the list from the team:
Bryce Cotton – Providence College
Kadeem Batts – Providence College
Chaz Williams – UMass
Deonte Burton – Nevada
Nick Johnson – Arizona
Russ Smith – Louisville
Xavier Thames – San Diego State
Kendrick Perry – Youngstown State
Kyle Casey – Harvard
Reger Dowell – Texas-Arlington
Semaj Christon – Xavier
Tim Frazier – Penn State
Lousville’s Smith (pictured) may be the most intriguing player on the list. He averaged 22.3 points and 2.5 steals in the Cardinals’ six NCAA Tournament games on their way to the title in 2013. He averaged 18.2 points per game last season.
None of these players is projected in the first round, and the Celtics don’t currently own a second-round pick, but a lot can happen between now and draft night.
