The Boston Celtics have been pursuing a number of established veterans, building a trade package around the third overall pick in Thursday's draft.

The Celtics have been working to put together a package for either Jimmy Butler, Gordon Hayward, Jabari Parker or Khris Middleton.

Boston, so far, has been unable to make any progress with the Bulls, Jazz or Bucks, respectively.

The Celtics acquired the third overall pick from their 2013 trade with the Brooklyn Nets, giving them the rare opportunity to be a playoff team with such a high draft pick.
