Celtics' Abdel Nader: Selected No. 58 overall by Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Nader was selected by the Celtics with the 58th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

Nader spent his final two years of college eligibility at Iowa State, although he only averaged 12.9 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.5 three-pointers per game during his senior campaign. With the Celtics selecting several other rookies from this draft, Nader should have a tough time making the team's regular season roster.

Celtics' Ben Bentil: Selected No. 51 overall by Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Bentil was selected by the Celtics with the 51st overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

While not the most consistent shooter, Bentil still has a solid offensive game overall and is confident enough to take a jumper from anywhere on the floor. He's quite athletic at 6-foot-8, but has some work to do defensively in order to keep up with current NBA players. Bentil finished his sophomore season at Providence with averages of 21.1 points and 7.7 rebounds across 34 minutes per game.

Celtics' Demetrius Jackson: Selected No. 45 overall by Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Jackson was selected by the Celtics with the 45th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

Jackson is the Celtics' fourth selection in this draft, but two of the three before him are international prospects who will likely be stashed overseas. Thus, the point guard from Notre Dame will have a realistic chance at competing for a roster spot in training camp. The 6-foot-2 Jackson improved steadily during three seasons with the Fighting Irish, culminating with averages of 15.8 points, 4.7 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 three-pointers and 1.2 steals in 36 minutes per game in 2015-16.

Celtics' Ante Zizic: Selected No. 23 overall by Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Zizic was selected by the Celtics with the 23rd overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

Zizic was able to develop early, as he started playing professional basketball in Croatia at just 16 years old. At 6-foot-11, he's an impressive defender and has the ability to contest shots at the rim. He's solid all-around offensively, but he'll still need to polish some of his game on that side of the ball. Zizic, the reigning FIBA Center of the Year, is a candidate to remain overseas for another season as a draft-and-stash player, but we should know more on his status once the regular season approaches. If he does end up joining the Celtics in 2016-17, he'd likely just be asked to provide depth in the frontcourt, with major minutes unlikely to be available.

Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Selected No. 3 overall by Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Brown was selected by the Celtics with the third overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

The Celtics had been working feverishly to trade the pick, but after finding no suitors who were willing to meet their demands, they selected their top available option in Brown, a freshman from Cal who can slot in at either shooting guard or small forward. He's very athletic and possesses the size and strength to play right away, but he'll need to build a more consistent jump shot in order to secure a larger role with the playoff-contending Celtics. Brown shot 48 percent from the field and just 29 percent from the three-point line in college, so he especially needs to work on extending his range. The potential remains high for Brown, but he'll be a bit of a project player in his first NBA season. Don't expect him to hold much fantasy appeal as a rookie, but he remains an intriguing commodity in dynasty formats.
