Celtics select Carsen Edwards with 33rd pick in 2019 NBA Draft


With the 33rd pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, the Boston Celtics select guard Carsen Edwards out of Purdue.

Here's what NBC Sports Boston's Chris Forsberg said about Edwards in his Prototypical Celtics series:

"The Celtics have had a lot of luck with undersized guards capable of scoring, especially when the rest of the league views them as bench players (miss you, Isaiah). The 6-foot Edwards averaged 24.3 points per game at Purdue and, while he can handle the ball, he’s more likely to create for himself than others (only 2.9 assists per game last season). As former Celtics assistant Micah Shrewsberry dives into his new gig at Purdue, he can funnel all the necessary intel on Edwards to Boston’s decision-makers."

The Celtics received the 33rd pick as part of a deal with the 76ers, which sent No. 20 pick Matisse Thybulle to Philadelphia.
