The Boston Celtics are going to be incredibly active in the Draft night with three first-round picks at their disposal. The Celtics, who reached the Eastern Conference Finals last season are looking to move up in the Draft, per The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor.

To do that, they are willing to give up all three first-round picks with O’Connor reporting that no team has shown interest in their offer yet.

Boston Celtics’ GM Danny Ainge built a contending team through the draft by selecting the core of Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart the last few seasons.

The Celtics believe that three mid-to-late first round picks will not dramatically improve the team, but by trading away three picks, Boston could secure more cap space ahead of the free agency.
