Charles Jenkins, a 6'3", 220-pound guard from Queens, is projected to the Boston Celtics with the No. 25 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in the final mock draft from Tom Ziller at SB Nation.
Jenkins, who played four seasons at Hofstra University, averaged 22.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and shot at a 42 percent clip from three-point range last season. While Ziller projects Jenkins to the Celtics, he acknowledges that it's entirely possible that Danny Ainge might draft BC's Reggie Jackson.
The Celtics have been adamant that they didn't promise Reggie Jackson, leading him to cancel workouts. Danny Ainge would never lie to us, would he?
Speaking of Jackson, Ziller projects that he will be drafted three picks later at No. 28 overall by the Chicago Bulls.
28. Chicago Bulls: Reggie Jackson, G, Boston College
I don't actually think the Bulls promised Jackson; Gar Forman is busy polishing his quarter of an Executive of the Year trophy. (He split the award with Pat Riley, then John Paxson demanded his half. Good thing Joakim Noah took metalworking at Boy Scout camp.)
Jackson averaged 18.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists last year at Boston College.
