NBA Draft 2012: Celtics Interested In Moving Up, Haven't Made Promise

In a draft this deep, you'd be crazy if you didn't want to move up. That's certainly Danny Ainge's logic, as the President of Basketball Operations of the Boston Celtics told reporters on Wednesday that he is certainly interested in moving up in this Thursday's draft if the price is right. Boston currently has the No. 21 and No. 22 overall picks inthe first round.

Ainge also said that the Celtics have their prospect list in order (they better by now, right?), and that the team has not made any promises to anyone, contrary to reports that they had promised Royce White that they would draft him if he fell to Boston at the end of the first round.

The draft takes place on Thursday night in Newark, NJ.
