BOSTON (CBS) — It was mostly NBA Draft Combine talk on this morning’s “Celtics @ 7” after executives from across the league spent a few days in Chicago this past week evaluating some of the top college talent bound for the June 26 draft.
While vertical jumps and sprints aren’t the most exciting events in the world, the interview process provided a great opportunity for clubs to get to know players better. The C’s conducted more than a dozen interviews, asking many of the kids to outline defensive plays while also delving into their personal lives.
Jay King from MassLive.com joined the show to discuss his observations from the Combine. He speculated on the Celtics’ top targets and also weighed in on the futures of captain Rajon Rondo and Nets free agent Paul Pierce.
