C's working out 12 players

The Boston Celtics are bringing in 12 players for a pre-draft workout on Monday:

Bryce Cotton, Providence College

Kadeem Batts, Providence College

Chaz Williams, UMass

Deonte Burton, Nevada

Nick Johnson, Arizona

Russ Smith, Louisville

Xavier Thames, San Diego State

Kendrick Perry, Youngstown State

Kyle Casey, Harvard

Reger Dowell, Texas-Arlington

Semaj Christon, Xavier

Tim Frazier, Penn State

There are no potential first-rounders in this batch, but Nevada's Burton and Louisville's Smith are probably the two most notable names on a list that also includes local college guys like Harvard's Casey and Providence's Cotton and Batts.

The Celtics don't have a second-round pick in this year's draft (they traded it as part of last year's shuffle up to nab Kelly Olynyk) but have always been diligent about kicking the tires on all available prospects. Last year, when Phil Pressey went undrafted, the Celtics signed him and he appeared in 75 games during his rookie season.
