Post-draft analysis is fun in any sport, but the NBA draft is usually one of the craziest nights in sports. The stories that come out afterwards are insanely entertaining. Today a big one broke that is pretty mind-boggling.
A report claims that the Boston Celtics offered four first-round picks (and up to six total picks) to the Charlotte Hornets in an attempt to move up to the No. 9 spot in Thursday night’s draft. Those four (!!!!!) first-round picks would have only moved Boston up seven slots, but it would have put them in position to add Justise Winslow, who was still on the board at No. 9. The Hornets turned the trade down and selected Wisconsin center Frank Kaminsky with the pick. Winslow quickly went off the board at No. 10 to the Miami Heat.
