  • I'm a Paul Heyman guy.
What's everyone's view on Olynyk?

He seems like he fills quite a few of the celtics needs/ tendencies (7ft, can run the floor, good back to the basket game)?

Olynyk is not known for his defense. He needs to work on that, and work a lot. His strengths are he has solid offensive skills down low, a good midrange shot. He's an offensive Center who can score down low and outside the perimeter. He lacks athleticism though and is MIA on defense on most times.

agree, having him is like marcin gortat or al jefferson?

I think he can have a Big Al effect offensively. He's really good down low. His array of moves and footwork is NBA level and he can probably drop 15-17 a game on 6-7 shots. His defense needs a ton of improvement, but he's mobile for a big man so that's a plus. And we have the perfect defensive mentor to show him the stuff.

At this point he's probably top 10 now so chances are we wont be able to grab him.

Rumor is we're taking a hard look at this guy:

I guess Austin has been scouting him hard and he may already have a promise..

My choice is Rudy Gobert. However,if this Adeto kid falls to us he will be a defensive gem. He could frustrate and keep up against LBJ.

McAdoo, McAdoo, McAdoo.... big Mac attack...

Big Carolina fan here, and I gotta say that McAdoo had one of the most disappointing sophomore seasons after a strong freshman year. He looks like a classic tweener (less polished version of Antawn Jamison. Remember Jamison was NPOY before declaring for the draft). I just don't see him being able to guard quick 3's, or big 4's in the NBA. He has great athleticism, but his offensive game looked very shaky. No consistent jump shot or post moves. Not the strongest rebounder either. Considering some people thought he had player of the year type talent in him, he really hurt his stock coming back to school.

I also wouldn't be surprised if he went back to school for another year. Thats how much his stock fell this past year.

I personally think PJ Hairston is the best pro prospect on the team. Great athleticism, big/strong body, can shoot the lights out, very strong rebounder and basically carried the Tar Heels when he was put in the starting lineup midway through the year. He could be a very solid 2/3 in the league. His recent play may have moved him into the first round. Kid has pro size, athleticism and skill.

Honestly I hope they C's trade the pick to a team like memphis, for someone like Ed Davis, who is buried on the bench.

But if you're looking for someone to catch the ball at the extended elbow, take two dribbles, and try to bank in an off-balance 12-footer while drifting toward his shooting hand, he's your guy!

I may be a little bitter after the Kansas game.
