Danny Ainge says Josh Jackson canceled Celtics workout on them

With all the trade rumors that dominated social media and radio talk shows prior to the draft, Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens is thrilled that the team made the selection.

Ainge said he did not talk with the Chicago Bulls over the last week before they traded Butler and the 16th pick to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine and the draft rights to Lauri Markkanen.

But the 20-year-old certainly exceeded all expectations in his rookie season and has fans excited about what the future will hold for him and the Celtics. "He's a terrific player".

Tatum appeared soft-spoken, but was resolute about joining a team coming off an eastern conference finals appearance.

"I look at it as a great opportunity", said Tatum.

Kennard, a consensus 2nd Team All-American last season, played two years at Duke, averaging 15.7 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.

"I'm trying not to cry right now", Tatum said in an interview on ESPN following the Thursday draft. His all-around skillset should cause him to be selected among the first 10 picks. There are some rumblings that the Celtics could closing in on a star player.

"It's great", he said.

Asked how he reacted to the trade, Tatum said, "You know, I was surprised because they had the No. 1 pick but they know more than I do so when they called me for a workout I was like sure". "I've been drafted to Phoenix, and I'm going to go there and I'm going to make the best of it".

Less than a week after securing the No. 3 spot courtesy of their high-profile trade with the Philadelphia 76ers, the Boston Celtics have selected Jayson Tatum, a 6-foot-8 small forward from Duke.

He says the two countries "agree on most things" and jokes that "by the end of the day we'll agree on everything". He also stressed that both nations' growing security and defense co-operation was very important.

He turned out to be correct.

Instead, Ainge was believed to be assembling a package of players and some of his lesser first-round picks over the next two years to bring in George, likely as a one-year rental. "Wherever I end up Thursday, I'll be happy".

That won't preclude him from revisiting some of those discussions once free agency opens next month, though. "We anticipate being very active to try to improve our roster". Go back through any single draft and count how many guys have turned into an All-NBA player and three-time All-Defensive team member.

The Boston Celtics were expected to make a lot of noise during the draft. Although Boston used an early draft pick on another versatile forward in Jaylen Brown a year ago, Tatum could play the four at the next level if his ability to rebound translates against bigger National Basketball Association defenders. Asked for a current National Basketball Association comparison, Tatum picked a player whom the Celtics had interest in at February's trade deadline.

"He was just ranting about how great of a person Brad Stevens is", Tatum said. I was all for it. He offers far more offensive upside than either player, though both Brown and Crowder are better defenders. It's like you're playing poker with guys, you never know what's in the other hand. "I got to spend time with [general manager] Danny Ainge, coach [Brad] Stevens and the other staff and hang out".

The court will hear arguments and render a decision in the gay wedding case refusal case during the next term after the summer. Phillips has said that if he were required to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple it would constitute coerced speech.

Pressed on if the cancellation left Boston considering passing entirely on Jackson, Ainge said he tried to remain calm about the situation. If there is a more complimentary fit in this world than Lavar Ball and the city of Los Angeles, I haven't heard it.
