There can be a lot up in the air when a team has the 25th pick in any draft, but that doesn’t mean a team can’t have a preference for a particular player when selecting at that spot.
Despite rumors that the team is considering trading their 25th pick in Thursday night’s NBA draft, Sports Illustrated writer Chris Mannix tweeted “Boston leaning towards Jeremy Tyler w/ 25th pick, source says.” Mannix had told the Dennis & Callahan show that Tyler was a possibility for the C’s on Wednesday.
