2011 NBA Mock Draft: Jimmy Butler To Celtics, Reggie Jackson To Heat

Tom Ziller has spoken (or written, rather, his final mock draft), and with the No. 25 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the Boston Celtics will draft Marquette's Jimmy Butler

Butler, who played four seasons with the Golden Eagles, averaged 15.7 points and 6.1 rebounds last season. Butler also averaged 2.3 assists and 1.4 steals while shooting 34.5 percent from three-point range.

In addition, Ziller has the Miami Heat selecting Boston College guard Reggie Jackson with the No. 30 overall pick in the first round. Jackson averaged 18.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game for BC last season.

The Miami Heat adore Boston College's Reggie Jackson with the 31st pick, but there are questions about him. Jackson has provided no medical records on his knee to teams, and has refused workouts as well as even the most rudimentary of interviews. (via Yahoo! Sports)

Jackson has also been associated with the Celtics since the start of the NBA Draft rumors, but Butler's name is relatively new to the mix. However, it seems likely that Butler might be the C's top target, as both Ziller and ESPN draft insider Chad Ford have pegged him to Boston.
