The Boston Celtics have bagged an impressive youngster in the form of Draft choice James Young, according to his previous coach at college side Kentucky.

The former college coach of NBA Draft pick James Young has told Boston Celtics that they have one of the most impressive young players in the league.

John Calipari of Kentucky has been speaking about Boston's latest Draft pick and has told Celtics followers that Young is one of the quickest players out of the Draft bunch.

"He's got a ways to go," said Calipari, according to CSNNE.

"He's 19. [He's] as fast as anyone in the Draft, as long and athletic as anyone in the Draft and can really shoot. The people in Boston are going to love him."

Boston picked Young as the 17th Draft number at the event earlier this year.
