NBA Draft 2020 Live in India, pick results: For the 14th overall pick in the NBA Draft 2020, the Boston Celtics select Aaron Nesmith. They have selected Payton Pritchard in their 26th pick. They have traded their 30th pick to the Memphis Grizzlies. With their 47th pick, Boston selected Yam Madar.
The Celtics wanted to patch up the few weak spots in an otherwise watertight rotation. They already have a young squad full of talented players like Jason Tatum, Marcus Smart, and Jayleen Brown.
While they tried to trade upwards in the draft, no other teams were interested in doing so. The Boston Celtics still get a very good pick in Aaron Nesmith

The Boston Celtics roster could look like this:
