Celts begin auditions

The Celtics [team stats] will get down to more serious business today when they begin individual auditions for the No. 5 overall pick.
Florida’s Corey Brewer and Florida State’s Al Thornton will be put through their paces at the team’s Waltham facility, as the C’s proceed on the assumption they will still be holding the high pick in the June 28 draft.
The two are among six prospects the Celtics have currently identified as possibilities at 5. Brandan Wright, Jeff Green, Yi Jianlian and Al Horford are the others.
Green was originally scheduled to work out with today’s group, but in that he is retaining his right to go back to Georgetown (he still hasn’t hired an agent), he would have to pick up his own travel costs.

Celtics director of basketball operations Danny Ainge said last night that Green will be hosting his own workouts in D.C. next week, and the Celtics are expected to fly down to see him.
Ainge and the Celts crew returned home from Orlando last night after spending additional time working out players who figure to be in the mix later in the draft, if at all.
“You’ve got to look at everybody because you never know what your needs are going to be,” Ainge said.
