NBA Draft Rumors 2012: Andrew Nicholson 'Unlikely To Get Past' Boston Celtics, According To Report

If Andrew Nicholson is still on the board at pick No. 21 in Thursday night's 2012 NBA Draft, he is "unlikely to get past" the Boston Celtics, according to a Yahoo! Sports report.

The Celtics' potential to draft Nicholson hinges on a number of factors. They are reportedly in the hunt to package Nos. 21 and 22 (and perhaps other assets) in exchange for a lottery pick, so they might not have their late first-round pick with which to select the 6-foot-10 big man from St. Bonaventure. It's also entirely possible that Nicholson gets selected prior to Boston's picks, even if the Celtics hold onto their current ones.

Nicholson possesses an inside-outside game that some scouts have likened to David West's. He is not seen as having as much upside as certain less-polished prospects, but was both efficient and productive while leading St. Bonaventure to the school's first NCAA tournament appearance in 12 years.
