A parallel report by Jake Fischer of Sports Illustrated explains to why Jackson hasn't worked out with the team, which was his belief that the Celtics wouldn't pick him with the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft, which they held prior to this week. "I got to meet Danny Ainge, and that was great". He averaged 16.3 points, 7.4 rebounds, and three assists a game in over 30 minutes per game as a freshman. "I knew something about him, he knew something about me". While there's been plenty of trade rumors involving the Cleveland Cavaliers, L.A. Lakers, and #Boston Celtics, it seems there has been less focus on who Boston could actually pick.
"We were just texting back and forth about who we thought he would go to, who I thought he was going to be drafted by", Graham said.
3 spot, it immediately had analysts believing they'd take the guy considered third-best overall for this draft class. "I think they got a very good player in Jayson Tatum, but that doesn't mean [Jackson's agent] B.J".
"OK, so the Celtics originally had the No.1 pick, and me and my agent, we talked and we just didn't feel like they had much interest in drafting me at No.1", Jackson said. Jackson didn't participate in a workout with the Boston Celtics - who have the No. 3 pick - and is now projected to go No. 4 to the Phoenix Suns, but Graham said he would be surprised if a player of Jackson's caliber falls out of the top three. Once a projected pick in this year's draft before deciding to return to college for his senior season, Graham said he will have no conflicting emotions while watching Thursday's broadcast.

But Jackson apparently doesn't want to become a Celtic and reportedly has refused to work out for the organization without an assurance that he will be chosen by them and not traded. "With Frank, I think he's a pitbull, a great shooter, someone that gives 110 percent all the time". With the draft ratings added, Smith falls just below Josh Jackson, though the estimated gap with Fultz also grows.
"Both of them are hard-nosed, competitive, great teammates and great leaders", Newman said Tuesday. "I would love to play in Boston". They know what I bring to a team. He thinks they can make each other better if they wind up together, and he isn't particularly anxious about being stuck in a crowded frontcourt, fighting for minutes on a playoff team.
"Jayson's a talented player", Kennard said.
