Celtics' Ante Zizic: Arrives in Boston, cleared to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zizic, who was selected by the Celtics with the 23rd pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, has arrived in Boston to begin practicing with the team, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.

Zizic is a 6-foot-11 center who has likely fallen off most people's radar as a result of being a late first-round selection and spending a year overseas after being drafted. The Celtics were in no rush to bring him over to the States last season considering the strength of their team and how raw he still may be, though they seemingly have high hopes for him moving forward. He spent last season playing for a Turkish club in high-level Euroleague, averaging 9.0 points and 6.7 rebounds across 21.9 minutes per game while shooting 64.9 percent from the field. The Celtics are likely hoping he can be a rebounding presence, as the squad was notably poor on the glass last year. At the moment, his role with the team seems up in the air, but his play in summer league should help clear up his immediate potential. Plus, with Boston probably looking to clear as much cap space as possible this summer in an effort to sign a big-name free agent, Zizic may end up thrust into a significant role sooner than was expected when he was drafted.

Celtics' Jabari Bird: Taken by Boston in second round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bird was selected by Boston with the 56th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

A solid four years at Cal were rewarded with being drafted by an NBA team, but that might be the highest reward he'll receive as the 6-6 shooting guard faces a tough road ahead to make Boston's 15-man roster. Even if he pulls off the unexpected, he'll be immediately slotted in at the bottom of the depth chart will little hope for playing time.

Celtics' Kadeem Allen: Drafted by Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen was selected by the Celtics with the 53rd overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

An unheralded recruit out of high school, Allen put together a solid, four-year career at Arizona, but he'll likely have a difficult time making the Celtics' roster out of camp. As a 23-year-old on one of the league's deepest teams, Allen may have to try his luck in the D-League in 2017-18.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Goes to Celtics with third pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum was selected by the Boston Celtics with the third pick in the first round of the NBA Draft.

Boston's selection was perhaps the biggest unanswered question going into Thursday's draft, but the Celtics went with the former Duke standout over Josh Jackson. Tatum is a pure shooter with great ball-handling skills, and his strengths are obvious with the ball in hi hands but not as evident on the defensive end. Tatum' will challenge Jae Crowder for playing time, but with Boston in the current conversation as a destination for Paul George, it's too soon to tell where the chips will fall in Boston's backcourt.
