Although the NBA Draft is on June 26, the Boston Celtics are “locked in” on the Arizona forward according to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated:

“Several league sources believe that Celtics GM Danny Ainge is locked in on Gordon. While Gordon’s shooting is a concern, he is a strong rebounder and shot blocker who can defend either forward spot and has been compared to Shawn Marion. A trade is possible here, too. Ainge is always on the lookout for a make a blockbuster deal, and with Boston’s assets he is more than equipped to do so.”

While the draft is three weeks away, Gordon is an intriguing prospect with his strong abilities as a rebounder and shot blocker. Although the Celtics will likely try to use the pick as a package deal for Minnesota Timberwolves’ Kevin Love, it appears the team is set on Gordon if he is available with the sixth overall pick.

For the Lakers, it will be interesting to see which prospects stand out today. While they dropped to the seventh pick, there are numerous prospects that should potentially be available including Julius Randle, Marcus Smart, Noah Vonleh, and Gordon.
