The Boston Celtics are without a first-round draft pick this summer after dealing it away. They have the 35th pick in the 2023 NBA draft via the Portland Trail Blazers, and several options projected to them by draft analysts are worth considering.

Marcus Sasser is a 6-foot-2 guard out of Houston with a 6-foot-7 wingspan, high motor and strong defensive skills. He stands out as a smart player who can shoot and has solid handles. Jaime Jaquez is a 6-foot-6 wing from UCLA known for his off-ball defense, high IQ, passing ability and shooting off the dribble. Arkansas’ Jordan Walsh is another popular name among those projecting for the Celtics at the top of the second round.

To hear more about some options the Celtics might be considering with that pick, check out the clip embedded below courtesy of the NESN YouTube channel.
