NBA draft-day rumors: Celtics ‘leaning towards Jeremy Tyler’ says Chris Mannix

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 [1] “Boston leaning towards Jeremy Tyler w/ 25th pick, source says.” Mannix had told the Dennis & Callahan show [2] that Tyler was a possibility for the C’s on Wednesday.
