The Celtics have two picks in the first round of next week's NBA Draft -- Nos. 21 and 22 overall -- and the question is, will they use both of them?

Rich Levine doesn't think so.

"I don't see them using both picks," the author of CSNNE.com's 'Standing Room Only' blog said Thursday on 'Uno's Sports Tonight'. "They'll either package them, or trade one of them for something . . .

"They're already got Avery Bradley, they've got JaJuan Johnson, they've got E'Twaun Moore . . . I don't think they can keep Johnson and Moore and two rookies if they want to be deep enough to compete.

"So I think they're going to try and package and move up. Maybe move it for another piece. You know director of basketball operations Danny Ainge is going to be wheeling and dealing; that's what he does. But I'd very surprise if they take both picks."
