In last year's draft, the Boston Celtics initially pursued a trade for the Charlotte Hornets' No. 9 pick with the idea of sending it to the Knicks, along with Boston's No. 15 pick to move up to No. 4.
The Celtics were targeting Justise Winslow at No. 4, just as they were at No. 9.
Charlotte refused the pitches from the Celtics and ended up taking Frank Kaminsky, while Kristaps Porzingis went No. 4 overall to the Knicks.
The Miami Heat selected Winslow with the 10th overall pick.
"We listened," Steve Mills says. "But we were never close."
