The Celtics had three first round draft picks in the 2001 NBA draft. For the eleventh pick, they went with Kedrick Brown. A player out of the junior college Okaloosa-Walton, Brown was an risky pick in light of the fact that he had no experience playing against NCAA teams. Brown only endured two seasons with the Celtics and was traded to Cleveland. For his entire career in the NBA, Brown averaged the only 3.5 points per game and 2.5 rebounds.
