Catching up with the Boston Celtics’ 2023 NBA draft workouts part III

Win or lose in the NBA’s 2023 Eastern Conference Finals series with the Miami Heat, the Boston Celtics have plenty on their plate regarding their future as they continue to work out prospects projected to go in the second round of the ’23 NBA draft.

With the Celtics likely to need cheap depth in the future, look for prospects who are either polished enough to get some depth minutes in their rookie campaign or who might be okay with a season or two stashed abroad while the team makes decisions about how it will use the new two way player slot added to rosters in the latest collective bargaining agreement recently adopted by the league.

Adding to our previous reporting of the team’s known workouts comes a new wave courtesy of our sister sites Rookie Wire and HoopsHype as well as the New York Times’ Adam Zagoria — let’s take a look at who Boston has been scoping out.
