It's obviously too far away to predict Celtics draft position and trades or what not but in general, how bad does this hurt his draft stock?

I know it's considered a pretty weak draft so some team will likely still gamble on him towards the top.

How far do you guys think he drops though?

I think Noel stays in the latter half of the top 10.

I'd love to see Danny try to trade up from #16 to get Noel.

I think he may come back to UK for another year to strenghten his knee and get ready for NBA. He doesnt have to play that many games in college and he may think he owes the Wildcat fans for getting hurt. It all depends on his money situation with his family

Yea, I think this draft really is that poor. I wonder when the last time somebody spent a lottery pick on a player who was already injured?

I think even higher than that

I think he still goes top 3 depending on which team gets the pick.
DKC:  Rockets
CB Draft: Memphis Grizz
Players: Klay Thompson, Jabari Parker, Aaron Gordon
Next 3 picks: 4.14, 4.15, 4.19

If you believe the news these days in Crazy Town, ACL tears are nothin.  Our unwanted point guard tore his ACL and suddenly the Lakers wanted to give up the best big man in the game for him.
