NBA Rumors: Will Boston Celtics Sign Greg Oden?

NBA Rumors: Will Boston Celtics Sign Greg Oden?

Hyped by on May 21, 2013 Website: www.bostonsuperblog.com

Prior to the 2007 NBA Draft Lottery, it was expected that the Boston Celtics would be key players in the 2007 NBA Draft, as they stood an excellent chance at landing the No. 1 or No. 2 pick. With Greg Oden from Ohio State and Kevin Durant from Texas as the clear cut top two players available, it appeared as if the Celtics would have their next great player to build around. But, as it generally does in terms of the Celtics and the Draft Lottery, Boston did not do well and fell to the No. 5 pick overall. The Portland Trail Blazers foolishly selected Oden instead of Durant, the Celtics decided to trade their pick to the Seattle Sonics, who took Durant at No. 2 and then drafted Jeff Green with the pick acquired from Boston, for Ray Allen. It was quite the draft in terms of NBA history, with those picks changing the futures of all of the teams involved.
