After slipping, the Boston Celtics had their sights set on drafting Justise Winslow. So much so, that according to reports, they were able to give up multiple first round picks in order to trade up to draft him.

This is true. CHA turned down a major haul for No. 9, BOS was going full throttle for Winslow, per sources. https://t.co/RGFBTJw4un

Well, the Hornets not only passed on Winslow, who many see as a future All-Star, but also appeared to have turned down a Godfather offer from the Celts…for Frank Kaminsky. That’s a lot of faith in The Tank. Will the Jordan draft bust myth continue? Only time will tell.
