University of Alabama forward Braxton Key, who was not invited to the NBA Draft Combine this weekend, participated in a regularly-scheduled workout with the Boston Celtics, according to a post on one of his Instagram accounts.
Key announced in early April that he would enter his name into the draft-eligible pool but would not retain an agent. Players who sign a waiver do not lose eligibility by participating in a team’s workout.
A native of Charlotte, N.C., Key was named to the SEC All-Freshman team this past season after leading the Crimson Tide in scoring (12 points) and minutes (29.8) per game, while also topping the team in double-figure scoring games (20) and games scoring more than 20 points (three). In addition, he ranked second on the team in assists (2.5 per game) and rebounding (5.7 average).
He has until the May 24 deadline to announce his intentions regarding becoming a professional or returning to school for his sophomore season.
