Woj: Celtics not willing to meet Knicks demands for Porzingis as of now
The Celtics are one of several teams in on New York Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis prior to tonight's draft. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics are unwilling to meet the Knicks demands as of now:

News that Porzingis was available surfaced on Tuesday, and it was confirmed by Phil Jackson last night that the Knicks we're taking offers. The word is the Jackson is looking for a top-4 pick in the draft today so they can select forward Josh Jackson, plus a young talented player as well. If the Celtics end up making their pick at #3 and select Jackson, with Porzingis still in New York, perhaps a deal could still be reached sometime after the draft.
