Celtics interested in trading up for Embiid

Joel Embiid’s foot has changed the landscape of the NBA Draft, which is next Thursday in New York. The 7-footer from Kansas, who was once thought to be the favorite to go number one overall, now finds himself maybe dropping outside of the top five.

The Boston Celtics are sitting at number six and although Embiid may fall in their lap, Boston may not be willing to take that chance.

The Celtics will give “serious thought” to trading up from their No. 6 slot to select Embiid in the 2014 NBA draft next week, A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE reports, citing sources. The possibility that Embiid now could be available beyond the top three picks adds considerable intrigue to the Celtics’ draft-night plans.

There’s so many different directions this draft could go. Fasten your seat belts!
