Report: Celtics interested in trading down for Dennis Smith, Jr.

The Boston Herald's Steve Bulpett reports the Boston Celtics may be interested in trading down to select NC State point guard Dennis Smith.

Smith, who has seen his stock hurt by his ACL tear as much as from his reputation of not being the best teammate, was floated as a potential target for yet another move back in the draft for Danny Ainge. If true, and Daniel is doing his best Bill Belichick impression, it's quite possible this is one of the GMs who received exploratory inquiries on the issue. It's also quite possible this is just more misinformation seeking to murk the draft waters for another team's interests. Yet, it's certainly within the realm of the plausible, given existing signs of interest in the prospect.
