Where C’s stand beyond 2022

Here’s an updated look at the Celtics’ future draft picks originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Unless Brad Stevens has something up his sleeve heading into the 2022 NBA Draft, it’l be a quiet night for the Boston Celtics.

The C’s enter Thursday night with only one pick — a second-rounder at No. 53 overall. They traded their 2022 first-round pick to the San Antonio Spurs in the February deal that brought Derrick White to Boston.

We’ll have to wait and see whether Stevens will take after “Trader Danny,” but the new Celtics president doesn’t have nearly as much draft capital to work with over the next few years as his predecessor did. Here’s an updated look at all Boston’s draft picks from 2023 through 2028.

2023

Round 1 – own

Round 2 – The Celtics traded Enes Kanter and the rights to Desmond Bane in a three-team trade with the Portland Trail Blazers and Memphis Grizzlies. They will receive the better draft pick between the Houston Rockets’ second-round selection in 2023, and whichever 2023 second-round draft pick is worse between the Grizzlies or Dallas Mavericks.

Round 2 – The Celtics traded Tristan Thompson in a three-team deal with the Atlanta Hawks and Sacramento Kings. They acquired Kris Dunn, Bruno Fernando, and a 2023 second-rounder (from ATL).

Round 2 – The Celtics traded Bol Bol, PJ Dozier, and a 2028 second-round pick (protected top 45) to the Orlando Magic for a 2023 second-round pick (protected top 55).

2024

Round 1 – own

Round 2 – None.

The Celtics traded Gordon Hayward and second-round draft picks in 2023 and 2024 to the Charlotte Hornets for a conditional 2022 second-round draft pick.

2025

Round 1 – own

Round 2 – None.

Boston sent its 2025 second-round pick to the Orlando Magic in exchange for Evan Fournier.

2026

Round 1 – own

Round 2 – none

The C’s traded Kris Dunn and Carsen Edwards to the Grizzlies and gave Memphis the option to swap 2026 second-round picks in exchange for Juancho Hernangomez.

2027

Round 1 – own

Round 2 – none

The Celtics’ 2027 second-round pick was also involved in the Evan Fournier trade with Orlando.

2028

Round 1 – As part of the Derrick White trade, San Antonio has the right to swap its 2028 first-round pick for Boston’s first-rounder. If the pick falls on its protected selection and therefore isn’t conveyable, Boston will instead convey its 2028 second-round pick to San Antonio protected for selections 46-60. If this pick is not conveyed, Boston’s no longer will have its obligation to San Antonio.

Round 2 – none

The Celtics sent their 2028 second-round pick (protected 31-45) to Orlando in the Bol Bol/PJ Dozier deal. If the pick falls within its protected range, Boston’s obligation to Orlando will be extinguished.
