Report: 76ers 'ramping up' efforts for No. 3 pick
By: WEEI

It wouldn’t be draft day without a few rumors.

According to ESPN, the 76ers are ramping up their efforts to acquire the No. 3 pick from the Celtics in Thursday’s draft. It would seem likely the 76ers would want to select Providence guard Kris Dunn, but could also take Buddy Hield or Jamal Murray.

The report also adds the player the 76ers are shopping most is forward Nerlens Noel and it’s “more and more likely” he gets traded. Noel is originally from Malden, Massachusetts and played two years at Everett High School before transferring to the Tilton School.

He was the sixth overall pick in the 2013 draft.

League sources tell @chadfordinsider and me: Philadelphia is ramping up its efforts to acquire tonight’s No. 3 overall pick from Boston.

Reports: C's narrow third pick to Dunn or Brown

And down the stretch they come . . .

With the NBA draft set for Thursday night and the Celtics still unable to move the No. 3 pick, focus has narrowed on whom they might select at that spot, with draft insiders focusing on two names — Providence College point guard Kris Dunn and Cal forward Jaylen Brown.

ESPN’s Andy Katz reported on Twitter that the Celtics are leaning towards Dunn, a better, more explosive version of Marcus Smart. Katz’s colleague, Jeff Goodman, said on the network that he hears the Celtics will either take Dunn or Brown, an athletic wing player.

Both Dunn and Brown are considered NBA-caliber athletes, with Brown more advanced defensively and Dunn a more gifted offensive player.

With that in mind, we present our final Celtics Choice: Kris Dunn vs. Jaylen Brown.

The case for Dunn

See if this sounds familiar: the Providence guard is powerfully built and physically...

Your browser does not support iframes.

— Down 4-2, the PawSox put together an impressive two-run rally in the eighth inning, but were unable to close the deal Wednesday night. The Chiefs added a pair of runs that proved to be the winning margin in the ninth off of reliever Roman Mendez.

— The PawSox performed well at the dish, with six of nine starters recording at least one hit, while going 3-for-9 as a team with runners in scoring position. Jantzen Witte and Ryan Court each had two-hit games. Court, who was playing his fourth game since being called up Monday, is 6-for-13 with a triple and two RBI, good for a .462 average.

— Down 3-0 Henry Ramos parked a solo home run in the fourth inning to put the PawSox on the board. Ramos ultimately went 1-for-4 on the night.
