Posted By Jessica Camerato On June 28, 2009 @ 10:03 pm In General | 1 Comment

Draft Night may have seemed quiet for the Celtics [1], 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 [2] about landing a higher pick in the second round. According to the Memphis Commercial-Appeal [3], some of those conversations centered around the Grizzlies [4]:

Boston tried to entice the Grizzlies [5] twice. The Celtics offered Brian Scalabrine [6], Tony Allen [7] and a choice of J.R. Giddens or Bill Walker [8] for the Grizzlies’ 36th pick and cash considerations.

The Celtics’ best offer for the Grizzlies’ No. 2 pick only included center Kendrick Perkins [9].

The Grizzlies kept their pick and selected forward Sam Young from Pittsburgh. The Celtics used their only pick (58th) to draft guard Lester Young [10] from University of Tennessee-Martin.
