Best Potential Boston Celtics Trade Targets During 2014 NBA Draft

There are some rim-protectors out there for Boston to look at.

A year ago, draft day became trade day for the Boston Celtics. With the 2014 NBA draft on the horizon, which players could Boston be targeting this time around?

On draft day last summer—though the trade was officially announced on July 12, 2013—Boston sent Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry to the Brooklyn Nets for a package of players and picks, somewhat shocking the NBA world.

Since then, Boston put out a forgettable 25-57 season and is looking for a quick-fix, one-year turnaround. Those types of transitions are incredibly difficult and risky to pull of, but general manager Danny Ainge is on the lookout, which makes the upcoming draft intriguing in more ways than one.

For starters, the Celtics hold pick Nos. 6 and 17. However, when you consider the future selections they also have in the bag, their ability to make attractive packages increases exponentially.

Should they use either those 2014 picks, or any of the future ones, Ainge will likely be targeting a specific group of teams and players. Let's take a look at what that may entail.
