The Celtics selected Oklahoma State point guard Marcus Smart with the sixth overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft Thursday night and later added shooting guard James Young out of Kentucky at No. 17.

“First of all, we’re very pleased that we were able to get these two guys where we got them,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. “When you look at the draft, going into tonight, I had both of these guys in my top 11. At the end of the day, you can feel really good about that.”
