"You guys know my connection to the Boston Celtics and the respect I have for Danny Ainge, but you guys also know how competitive I am and it is a competition", McDonough told AP. "But I'm glad at how it worked out, so I'm happy".

The Celtics landed SMU forward Semi Ojeleye at No. 37 overall, the first of Boston's three second-round selections.

A pair of Triangle talents went in the top 10 of the NBA Draft Thursday as the ACC set a conference record with 10 first round draft picks. "But you can't make excuses because there can be times in the future where there's a game or playoff game where you're not feeling well, and nobody's going to care".

We know who Butler and Porzingis are and what they bring to the table.

In the meantime, they can help each other grow and push each other to be the best players they can be while wearing Boston Celtics green. "His skill set and work ethic will make him a star in the National Basketball Association".

He turned out to be correct.

In the meantime, Ainge has much more to look forward to, starting with the first round of 2018 draft, when he holds the rights to the final Brooklyn pick in his satchel, a Lakers first-rounder if it falls between the second and fifth picks and his own.

For the first time in National Basketball Association history, each of the first seven draft picks was one-and-done freshmen. You can debate whether Jackson or Tatum is the more talented player, but both Ainge and head coach Brad Stevens made it very clear during Friday's press conference that Boston is high on Tatum's character.

There's been tons of speculation that Utah Jazz free agent Gordon Hayward could come to the Celts to team up with his college coach, Brad Stevens.

Ainge said he did not talk with the Chicago Bulls over the last week before they traded Butler and the 16th pick to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine and the draft rights to Lauri Markkanen.

And when asked about what he did for his short stay in Sacramento, Ainge took shots at the city in the process.

"He never changed his expression", Stevens said of Tatum's workout demeanor. Although his defense needs work, "He's the real deal", said the analyst. "They canceled a workout on us when we flew out to Sacramento, and they just chose to cancel it as we flew".

At 22 years old, he's become a very versatile option and many considered him a steal at 37. "I think that Jayson's shooting and skill are ahead of Jaylen's when we drafted Jaylen".

"I think it's the ideal story", Jackson said.

Tatum fits nicely on a Celtics roster that sorely needed a scoring threat in the half-court to accompany guard Isaiah Thomas and big man Al Horford. "[This is] a team that was No. 1 in the East last season and has so many great guys and veterans". Tatum has great speed, size and rebounding ability for someone playing his position and can be a facilitator in getting his teammates the ball when they have a chance to score.
