Boston Celtics working out a pair of former Tennessee stars
The 2019 NBA Draft is just around the corner, and teams are finalizing their draft boards as they work out players for the last time.
On Monday, the Boston Celtics announced that they were working out six players, including two former Tennessee Volunteers.
Per a tweet from Keith Smith, Admiral Schofield and Jordan Bone are showing their skills for the Celtics today:
The Boston Celtics announced they will work out the following players today:
Admiral Schofield – Tennessee
Jason Burnell – Jacksonville St
Jordan Bone – Tennessee
Milik Yarbrough – Illinois St
Oshae Brissett – Syracuse
Ty Jerome – Virginia

Schofield and Bone are in the mix to be second-round picks on June 20, but if they perform well, they could potentially work their way into the first round.
We won’t have to wait much longer to find out where these ex-Vols are drafted, but it’s likely that big man Grant Williams will be the first Tennessee player off the board.
