With the 47th overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, the Boston Celtics select Yam Madar.

Madar is a 6-foot-3 point guard out of Israel who is known for his quickness and court vision. After selecting sharpshooters Aaron Nesmith and Payton Pritchard in the first round, the Celtics went with a playmaker in the second.

Madar played two seasons for Hapoel Tel Aviv and was a member of Israel's Senior National Team. The 19-year-old earned a gold medal with Israel's Under-20 team in the 2019 FIBA European Championship, where he averaged 15.9 points and 7.7 assists per game.
