With the Draft rapidly approaching, the focus is on NBA coaches and general managers as they finalize their plans.

Tim Welsh joined SportsNet Central to discuss the Brad Stevens' involvement in the NBA Draft selection process. 

"I think the coach has to have input because of the fact that it's his system, he's going to actually be the guy with the players every day," said Welsh. "The ultimate decision is going to come down to the general manager and his staff because they do all the scouting, they're going to do all the leg work."

Celtics coach Brad Stevens has been very involved in the prospect workouts. leading up to the Draft. Why is Stevens more involved than other coaches in the league?

"I think that was part of it when he took the job," said Welsh. "That he wanted to be involved, and he made that known before he came to Boston. Not that he's going to have the final say, but he's going to have the input, and thats the respect level that Danny Ainge has for Brad Stevens."
