Celtics host six players for last-minute pre-NBA Draft workouts

Thursday night's NBA Draft is shaping up to be an active one for the Celtics.

With Kyrie Irving and Al Horford both seemingly on their way out of Boston, general manager Danny Ainge will be looking for reinforcements. On Wednesday, the C's reportedly hosted six players for last-minute workouts.

Those players were forward Darius Bazley (Princeton High School) and guards Jalen Lecque (Brewster Academy), Tremont Waters (LSU), Jordan Bone (Tennessee), Chris Clemons (Campbell University), and Jared Harper (Auburn) according to Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated.

The Celtics possess four picks in the 2019 NBA Draft, including three in the first round: No. 14, No. 20 and No. 22.

The draft takes place Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. ET on ESPN. Be sure to tune in to NBC Sports' NBA Draft Preview Show on the MyTeams App at 3:00 p.m.

Watch Celtics' Tacko Fall help young fan dunk at WNBA playoff game

A young fan was able to experience the excitement of dunking a basketball with a little assistance from Tacko Fall.

The Boston Celtics center, who stands at 7-foot-6, was in attendance for Tuesday night's WNBA game between the Connecticut Sun and Los Angeles Sparks. During a break in the action, he picked up a small child and helped it dunk on a regulation-sized hoop.

Check out the special moment in the video below:

Celtics rookie Tremont Waters and assistant coach Kara Lawson also joined Fall to watch the Sun.

Fall played four seasons at the University of Central Florida and went undrafted earlier this year. He signed with the Celtics to play on their Las Vegas NBA Summer League team and performed well enough to earn an invitation to training camp, where he'll compete for one of Boston's final roster spots.
