The Celtics have three first-round picks in Thursday's NBA draft and the organization is expected to be quite active.

Part of it is doing all the homework it can on the players potentially drafted and that continued Wednesday, a day before the draft.

According to Sports Illustrated’s Jeremy Woo and Jake Fischer, the Celtics hosted six players for workouts Wednesday, including Darius Bazley, Jalen Lecque, Tremont Waters, Jordan Bone, Chris Clemons and Jared Harper.

Waters out of LSU and Bone out of Tennessee are the biggest names.

Bone is an under-the-radar prospect not receiving a ton of attention, but could be one of the steals of the draft. Waters, a point guard, was a solid player at LSU and will likely go in the second round.

Thursday should be an interesting and exciting night.
