On Monday the Celtics began working out potential draft candidates.  Here's the club's official video recap from Day 1 with Marc D'Amico:

Below is more from Louisville's Russ Smith, who speaks at length (at the prompting of CSNNE's A. Sherrod Blakely at the :45 second mark) about his eagerness to play with Rajon Rondo:

Said Smith on Rondo:

Believe it or not he's actually my favorite point guard... I love Rajon, I would love to play alongside him or back him up.

Smith and Nick Johnson are both projected as likely second round picks, and are ranked #48 and #51 overall by DraftExpress.
