Arizona’s Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Virginia’s Justin Anderson are among the players expected to work out for the Celtics next week. Hollis-Jefferson, projected to go anywhere from the middle of the first round to the early 20s, is arguably the most defensive-ready wing player in this year’s draft. And during the Chicago pre-draft combine last month, the 6-foot-7-inch Hollis-Jefferson said he is familiar with the Celtics and some of the current players. “I know Evan Turner, (Marcus) Smart,” said Hollis-Jefferson who is from Chester, Pa. “When Evan Turner was with the Sixers, I grew a relationship with him. He’s a real good guy.”
Turner may have benefitted in particular from his interaction with Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga, considered by most to be future head coach material in the NBA. Larranaga is the latest coach to tackle the enigma of Turner’s jump shot. “He just helped me as a player, growing and preparing. He’s a good coach and a good mentor,” said Turner. “Everything is preparation. My catch and shoot still has a ways to go. But we talk about the overall game. Shooting is just one part.”
