BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Celtics selected Brazilian Lucas Nogueira with the No. 16 pick in the NBA draft amid reports that they were sending him to the Dallas Mavericks along with a pair of second-rounders to move up three spots.
With the No. 13 pick, the Mavericks selected 7-footer Kelly Olynyk (OH'-lin-ick) from Gonzaga. He was fifth in voting for the Wooden Award.
Olynyk averaged 17.8 points and 7.3 rebounds while shooting 63 percent from the field while leading Gonzaga to a 32-3 season.
Olynyk would join a team with no coach that is attempting to trade its two biggest stars, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, to the Brooklyn Nets in a deal that would signal a major rebuilding for the squad that won the 2008 NBA title.
