The Boston Celtics pre-draft workout schedule evidently continues unabated, with Florida big man Colin Castleton slated to work out with the team according to Skornorth’s Darren Wolfson.
One of a number of 2021 NBA draft prospects who would project as a fringe candidate to be taken in the second round where the Celtics have a No. 45 pick, the Gator center is more likely a potential Boston camp invitee should he remain in the draft. Testing the waters without hiring an agent, this workout could be for both sides as much about establishing a relationship for the future as it is about the 2021 draft, though of course, that’s likely dependent on what sort of feedback the Florida big gets.
Castleton transferred from Michigan after his sophomore season, and put up 12.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 2.3 blocks per game in his junior season in Gainesville.
A 6-foot-11, 230 lb lanky big man whose game away from the basket needs development, the Daytona Beach native has decent enough shooting touch to intrigue given his size and recent propensity to protect the rim.
