The Celtics traded the 16th pick and two future second round picks to the Dallas Mavericks for Kelly Olynyk, the 13th pick in the NBA Draft.
Olynyk averaged 17 points and 7 rebounds in his junior season at Gonzaga. Olynyk is 7’0″ and has the ability to score the basketball inside and out. His most glaring weakness is his athletic ability and his prowess on the defensive end.
The Canadian born center is 22 years old and studying for a Master’s degree in business. Olynyk led the Gonzaga Bulldogs to a 32-3 record last season in the West Coast Conference.
The Celtics own no other picks in the 2013 NBA draft, but may look to add a pick later in the draft to grab a backup point guard for Rajon Rondo, who will be returning from ACL surgery.
