The Boston Celtics finally know their draft picks in the first round of the 2020 NBA Draft, most notably the pick they got from the Memphis Grizzlies. The C’s will select 14th with the Memphis pick, as determined by the 2020 draft lottery on Thursday night.
In addition, Boston will have its own pick at No. 26 and a selection acquired from the Milwaukee Bucks at No. 30. The Celtics originally acquired the Memphis pick in a trade for forward Jeff Green. The Phoenix Suns had previously acquired the Bucks’ pick before sending it to Boston for center Aron Baynes.
Additionally, the Celtics will pick 47th in the second round with a selection acquired from the Brooklyn Nets.
The Celtics must feel good about more picks in the top half of the NBA Draft, as they hold a 2-0 playoff series lead over the Philadelphia 76ers. Jayson Tatum has averaged 32.5 points in the two games.
