The Celtics are surely interested in Kevin Love – who just visited Boston – and their fans are dreaming of Carmelo Anthony, too.

If the Celtics pull off another star coup on the scale of adding Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen – or even a smaller one – they’ll probably surrender the No. 6 pick in the process.

But they go the conventional route and keep the selection?

Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated:

Several league sources believe that Celtics GM Danny Ainge is locked in on Gordon.

That would Aaron Gordon, freshman forward from Arizona.

First of all, any draft rumors could be smokescreens. There’s often incentive to provide incorrect information to other teams.

However, if this intel is at least somewhat correct, I don’t condone this strategy.
