NBA Draft rumors: Celtics interested in trading up to No. 4

That pick - which they received for trading Jeff Green to the Grizzlies in a three-team deal in 2015 - is protected (top-6) in 2020 but if not conveyed to the Celtics (or Pelicans) by then, it'll become an unprotected pick in 2021.

Garland played just five games for Vanderbilt as a freshman before undergoing knee surgery, so there's a pretty small sample size of him playing at the collegiate level, but in that stretch he averaged 16.2 points, 2.6 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game.

Of course, the Lakers weren't the only team looking to deal for Davis as the Boston Celtics had always been rumored as a potential landing spot. The Pels could look to swap the pick in exchange for a veteran guard or big but that may or may not change if there's a chance to pair Barrett with projected first-overall pick Zion Williamson.

It is worth nothing that Marc Berman of The New York Post adds that the Garland workout is simply New York doing their due diligence, suggesting that the guard is more of an "if-they-trade-down" candidate.

Sarah Sanders Speculation Shakes up Arkansas Governor's Race
He said Sanders may go into the private sector, while also urging her to run for office - for governor of her home state Arkansas. Neither Sanders nor the White House have explicitly stated the reason for her departure.

The Cavs have the fifth pick, and until the Lakers agreed to trade the No. 4 pick to the Pelicans on Saturday, Garland was figured to be gone by the time Cleveland makes its selection Thursday.

The Celtics, though, are not the only team interested in trading up to No. 4.

So might they use those picks to move up?

If New Orleans keeps their pick and the Atlanta Hawks ends up swapping to the Cleveland Cavaliers' fifth pick, Garland is highly likely to be on the board for the Bulls at seven.
