Celtics select Abdel Nader with 58th pick

With the 58th pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, the Boston Celtics capped off their night by selecting Iowa State forward Abdel Nader.

Nader played two years at Iowa State after transferring from Northern Illinois. He averaged 12.9 points per game with a 37.1 3PT%.

With a long 7-foot-1 wingspan, Nader could develop into a versatile 3-and-D player for the Maine Red Claws this year, the Celtics' D-League affiliate.
