Kadji is 25 yrs old already....transferred to Miami and sat out a year

I saw him at UMass in December and on Tv a few times.....very versatile and tough....if he had a second rounder  he's be worth a shot

Mouhammadou Jaiteh     6-9     220     PF/C     France

How many UNDERSIZED power forwards do we need on this team??

Look for 6-11 and up please!  Need more size, rebounding, and defense in the paint!  And please get someone more skilled than Fab Melo this time around!

How is anyone expecting them to get in position for Noel?

It really is simple. We just trade Jeff Green for the #1 overall pick.

You should consider re-running this poll with at least the consensus lottery guys removed. I'm not a draft expert, but I think that means at the very very least to get rid of the options for Noel, Mclemore, Len, Smart, Porter, Muhammad, Bennett, and Zeller. Probably also Harris and <gulp, sad> Oladipo.

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..

Sometimes, the 6-9 guy has more rebounding and defense than the 6-11 guy.

Yeah, draft him just so Tommy has to say his name.

Exactly. A lot of votes wasted here on people who are going to be off the board when the Celtics pick. Noel, for example, is not going to be available.

I'd love it if we could trade up enough to get Glenn Robinson III. Especially if we were able to keep our core guys together to do it (read: AB, Rondo, Green). I'd trade Sully to get this kid, as he is the explosive, athletic SF we'd want to replace Pierce. Our fastbreak would just be ridiculous, as would our defense. About 99% sure it won't happen though. Just out of curiousity, how many people think Mclemore will go number 1? How often does a SG go number 1, and would it be a wise decision?

Name a legit 7 foot center in this draft, in our range, and that is good enough to make an impact in the NBA.

Here's a hint: There aren't any.

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.
