    The Celtics selected the Oregon Ducks senior guard Payton Prichard at No. 26 in what could be a move to back up Kemba Walker and add more scoring depth to Boston's bench. Prichard is a veteran aggressive scorer, who unloads shots and attacks the rim at will while drilling roughly 40% of his threes at Oregon. He's older, but seasoned enough in game and role situations to fit on the Celtics right away. Boston went on to trade No. 30 with Vincent Poirier to the Grizzlies in a salary dump to wrap their first round. The Garden Report with John Zannis, Jimmy Toscano, Josue Pavon and Bobby Manning reacted to the pick. The CLNS Media Network is the leading provider for video/audio content.

    The Celtics selected Eugene, Oregon native Payton Prichard from the same are as Danny Ainge grew up in. As a similarly fearless, scoring guard with the Ducks he posted hefty scoring and shooting numbers while running Oregon's offense. He joins the back court with Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart as a potential backup. He said he wants to help the Celtics win a championship.
