NEW YORK -- In an NBA Draft widely perceived as a two-player event, multiple reports have surfaced this week that the Philadelphia 76ers will select Ben Simmons No. 1, followed by the Los Angeles Lakers selecting Brandon Ingram at No. 2.

If that holds true when the scene shifts to Barclays Center on Thursday evening, then this draft truly starts at No. 3. At that spot, nearly a half-dozen players have been mentioned in recent weeks, so when the Boston Celtics go on the clock, things could get interesting.

"They talked to me, I came in for a second workout and obviously, if I'm coming on for a second workout, they have some heavy interest," said Cal wing Jaylen Brown, who was once projected as high as No. 1 while a senior at Marietta (Ga.) High School, and is now projected at No. 8 by DraftExpress. "I talked to them about that, and things went well. Boston has a great history, great tradition, and it's a great city. I wouldn't mind being there."
