After finishing head coach Brad Stevens' first season with a 25-57 record, the team landed the No. 6 overall pick. Boston also holds the No. 17 selection via last year's blockbuster Paul Pierce-Kevin Garnett trade with the Brooklyn Nets.
All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo is expected to be 100 percent healthy this season after playing only 30 games last season upon his return from a torn ACL. Jeff Green led the team in scoring last year with a career-high 16.9 points per game, and young players like Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk are on the rise as well.
This year presents a deep and talented draft class. As a rebuilding team, Boston will have the opportunity to go in any number of directions with their two first-round picks. With some glaring holes on both sides of the ball, they will look to bring in rookies who will not only provide youth and energy but production as well.
Keeping in mind schematic fit and team needs, here are some names who could be realistic options for the Celtics at pick No. 6 or pick No. 17 in the 2014 NBA draft.
