There hasn't been any official reports from the Celtics about their workouts with draft prospects, but there has been tidbits of information coming out from tweets and other sources. The Celtics had more workouts this weekend with players including Jeff Withey, Tyler Brown, Troy Daniels, Jon Lee and Trevor Mbakwe. Jeff Withey might be the most intriguing among this group. Withey is a 6'11" center out of Kansas who has a 7'2" wingspan and 9'3" standing reach. He could come in and help a team right away. For more on Withey, check out the detailed profile that Kevin O'Connor did on CelticsBlog. Withey is #20 on Chad Ford's Big Board and projected to go 22nd to the Nets on his latest mock draft. He is #28 on Ford's Top 100. Another intriguing prospect is Trevor Mbakwe, mostly because he is projected to go in the second round where the Celtics don't have a pick and because he has been compared to a former Celtics second round pick. Mbakwe reminds me a bit of Leon Powe, a 6'8" player who plays hard and is a tenacious rebounder. Also like Powe, he has some injury concerns as well after tearing his ACL in 2011. Unlike Powe, however, he also has some off the court issues that are affecting his draft stock. He is ranked #59 in Ford's top 100. Also working out was Jon Lee, a 6'2" guard out of Northeastern. Lee isn't ranked on Ford's top 100 and has an outside chance of being drafted in the second round by a team looking for a player with great character and a strong work ethic. He averaged 13.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 4.0 assists in his senior year at Northeastern. According to a tweet from Pro Partner Sports, Lee broke Matt Janning's record in the Celtics' infamous 3-minute sprint with 29.5 lengths. Another name surfacing from the workouts is Tyler Brown, a 6'4" senior guard out of Illinois State. Brown is another player who isn't ranked in Ford's top 100 players. Brown averaged 18.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.4 steals at Illinois in his senior year. Finally, Troy Daniels, a 6'4" senior guard out of Virginia Commonwealth, who also isn't ranked in Ford's top 100. Daniels averaged 12.3 points, 3.1 rebounds and 0.6 assists in his senior year. At this point you have to wonder if Danny is scouting potentially undrafted players for the Summer League team. We'll report more info on workouts as it becomes available. [Discuss on CG Forums!]
