Olynyk Drafted 13th, Traded To Celtics

Former Gonzaga standout Kelly Olynyk was selected No. 13 overall by the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA draft, but was traded to the Boston Celtics.

Olynyk played sparingly as a freshman before using a redshirt year to bulk up and work on his game. This past season, the 7-foot center burst onto the collegiate scene by averaging 17.8 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.

The Kamloops, B.C., native led Gonzaga to its first ever No. 1 ranking in the AP poll. He was a finalist for the John R. Wooden Award.

Make sure to read this list of Olynyk's top five moments at Gonzaga.
