Centre Jonathan Davies, wing George North and flanker Sean O'Brien are also due to make their first appearances in New Zealand.

Open with a record-tying 16-under at Erin Hills . Koepka went off at 30-to-1 odds at Erin Hills, but his first major title has only bumped him down to 25/1 for the season's third major, according to Westgate Las Vegas Superbook .

Another said the Celts were looking at perhaps moving down in the draft again and picking up another asset for their trouble. "This is certainly a trade that is under the microscope more than others", Ainge said. "I'm open to it". Jackson appears to be the team's quicker choice but it all depends on how aggressive the teams feels this draft season.
