Draft Notes: Miller, Henson, Moultrie, Pistons

Even as his Celtics gear up for Game Seven tonight against the Heat, we learned yesterday that head coach Doc Rivers is still helping son Austin Rivers through the draft process.  If the C's want to tab the Duke standout, they'll likely have to move up on the board.  Boston currently holds the No. 21 and 22 picks in the draft.  Do you have the draft on your brain despite tonight's big game as well?  Don't worry, we've got you covered..

  • One general manager says Quincy Miller could go in the top 10, while another executive doesn't think he's a first-rounder, reports NBA.com's Scott Howard Cooper, who says the truth is somewhere in the middle. Joe Kotoch of SheridanHoops.com has the Baylor small forward going 22nd to the Celtics in his latest mock draft.
  • The itinerary for North Carolina power forward John Henson reveals he's working out for teams picking fifth through 15th, as Susan Bible of HoopsWorld writes.

Earlier updates:

  • Mississippi State's Arnett Moultrie says that the Pistons, picking ninth, and the Hornets, at No. 10, would be the best fits for him, writes Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.  When it comes to the Pistons, Moultrie believes that his game makes for a great complement to Greg Monroe.
  • Ohio State center Jared Sullinger has heard a lot of criticism about his weight and conditioning, but the big man looked to be in great shape in Chicago, Ellis writes.  Jim Jackson, currently working as an analyst for the Big Ten Network, believes that Sullinger's overall skill set makes up for his lack of explosive athleticism.
  • Andre Drummond isn't the most PR-savvy prospect in this year's draft but the UConn product might be the best available pick at No. 5, writes Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee.
