The Boston Celtics selected Jared Sullinger in the first round of the NBA draft.
Sullinger is a former Ohio State player who will likely be an undersized power forward for the Celtics. He was expected to be drafted in the top 10 prior to suffering some medical red flags during the evaluation process.
Sullinger has back issues and the Celtics are taking a risk by drafting him. Sullinger is 6'9, 20 years old and rougly 270 lbs.
