The Boston Celtics are scheduled to make eight selections over the two rounds of the draft, but do not have the roster space to keep all the picks.

Boston will also have picks 16, 23, 31, 35, 45, 51,and 58.
According to Andy Katz of ESPN, the Cs are down to Kris Dunn and Jaylen Brown for the third pick if they don't trade it.
