Celtics “Locked In” On Aaron Gordon With Sixth Pick


Sports Illustrated reports that the Boston Celtics are “locked in” on Arizona forward Aaron Gordon with the sixth pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.

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.
