Celtics Draft Rumors: Why Kansas Forward Josh Jackson Won't Workout For Boston

The Boston Celtics hold the No. 3 pick in tomorrow's NBA Draft, but the Celtics will not get a workout with one of the top options for that pick. Kansas forward Josh Jackson said there wasn't enough time to schedule a workout with the Celtics following the team's trade down with the 76ers. 

"They did a little bit of moving around with their pick," Jackson told ESPN. "I felt like they made it pretty clear who they were going to draft with the No. 1 pick, so I didn't really feel like it was worth either of our times for me to work out with them. But then when they, you know, did the flip and went to No. 3, by then it was too late."

Earlier in the week, ESPN's Chad Ford reported that Jackson had refused to workout for Boston unless they committed to taking him. 

The Celtics have been linked to a Jimmy Butler trade, which would surely cost them the No. 3 overall pick. Plus, Boston might not want Jackson at No. 3.

Ford is not the first to report the Celtics' interest in Duke's Jayson Tatum, if the pick is kept.
