Napier grew up in Boston, and he threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Saturday's Red Sox game with the rest of the championship-winning Huskies. He says he has always dreamed of playing for his hometown team.
The Celtics currently hold the 17th pick in the draft, as well as a to-be-determined lottery pick, which will most likely be a bit higher than Napier is selected.
They are considered candidates to trade down, in which scenario they might consider drafting Napier, but there's also the issue of current point guard Rajon Rondo. Napier will likely be a point guard in the NBA, and the Celtics are already set at that position with Rondo, who seems to be working well with head coach Brad Stevens.
Napier could be a solid backup, but I have a feeling he'd want to be a little more than that. Perhaps the Celtics can make his dreams come true and bring him to Boston, but it looks pretty unlikely for now.
