Draft Night may have seemed quiet for the Celtics , but that doesn’t mean they weren’t trying to make moves behind the scenes. After last Thursday’s draft Celtics GM Danny Ainge said the Celtics had conversations  about landing a higher pick in the second round. According to the Memphis Commercial-Appeal , some of those conversations centered around the Grizzlies :
Boston tried to entice the Grizzlies  twice. The Celtics offered Brian Scalabrine , Tony Allen  and a choice of J.R. Giddens or Bill Walker  for the Grizzlies’ 36th pick and cash considerations.
The Celtics’ best offer for the Grizzlies’ No. 2 pick only included center Kendrick Perkins .
The Grizzlies kept their pick and selected forward Sam Young from Pittsburgh. The Celtics used their only pick (58th) to draft guard Lester Young  from University of Tennessee-Martin.
