With the 45th pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, the Boston Celtics have selected Juhann Begarin.

Begarin is a 6-foot-6 shooting guard out of France with a 7-foot wingspan. In 39 games with Paris in LNB Pro B, the 18-year-old averaged 11.7 points and 2.9 rebounds while shooting 45.6 percent from the floor.

Here are Chris Forsberg's thoughts on the pick:

Begarin likely is a draft stash for the Celtics, who did not have a first-round pick on Thursday night.
