Ron Chenoy/USA TODAY SportsThe Celtics bought a second-round pick: Colton Iverson.
Lost in the shuffle on draft night -- hijacked by the the Celtics and Nets blockbuster trade -- is that Boston quietly bought a second-round pick and selected Colorado State 7-footer Colton Iverson with the 53rd pick overall.

The Celtics will likely send cash considerations to Indiana in exchange for the pick.

The ESPN Insider breakdown:
Positives
* Big space eater
* Solid scorer in the post
* Good rebounder

Negatives
* Not an elite athlete
* Old for his class
