NBA Draft 2015: Kameron Woods' possible landing spots

Woods will look to bring his rebounding prowess to an NBA squad. Here are three fits for the big man, two of which have already met with him.

Dave Weaver-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA Draft, as usual, is loaded with talent. With only 60 of the hundreds of eligible players being drafted, that leads to a lot of undrafted free agents. One of those undrafted free agents will be former Butler Bulldog Kameron Woods. Here are three teams where Woods would fit right in.

Orlando Magic

This one probably makes the most sense of the three teams. Woods interviewed with the Magic a couple weeks ago, plus reports out of Orlando say the team is "targeting forwards". In addition to all this, current Magic reserve power forward Kyle O'Quinn is a restricted free agent. If the Magic sign Woods, they'll have, at the very least, an insurance policy if O'Quinn leaves. If O'Quinn stays, he and Woods could provide for an interesting fit in the Orlando frontcourt.

Boston Celtics

Brad Stevens, current Celtics head coach, recruited Woods to Butler and coached him for his first two seasons. Alex Barlow, Woods' former Butler teammate recently accepted a job on the Boston coaching staff. It's not a surprise that Stevens and the Celtics would bring a former Butler player in for a workout. Stevens has molded the young Celtics squad into an exciting group to watch. Kameron Woods would add to that excitement and be a good fit off the bench.

Chicago Bulls

There are no ties between Woods and the Bulls, but I feel like it'd be a smart fit for him. The Bulls are constantly searching for big guys that can rebound the ball and play tough defense, and that fits Woods to a T. He would be a nice option to come off the bench for 10 minutes a game to give Joakim Noah a rest. Woods would also be the third Big East player on the Bulls (Jimmy Butler, Doug McDermott), so we would certainly welcome that, as well.
