Well if the pick is Harry Giles, our rebounding issues are definitely solved judging by the scouting reports.  He has legit length with that 7'3 reach to protect the rim and rebound.  16.0 rebound per 40?  yeah that would help a lot.

A lot would come down to the doctor's report on his medicals.  If he's healthy he could be just what we need at the 5.  If he's not healthy, he could be the next Greg Oden.....

Giles played last night, albeit a few minutes. Time to start tracking Duke and their loaded roster.

Also, the more I see Kennard the more I hope we can land him late 1st/early 2nd. He would make a great scorer/shooter off the bench.

I don't want a guy with 2 or 3 knee surgeries. We would roast Ainge for drafting a guy that is injury prone.

First let me say that I need to see how he bounces back before I make a true decision but based on the games that I have went back to watch. Have had to really think about what games he actually played in, I find it hard to pass on this kid if he is at 3 or 4. There is just too much to work with with this kid. A forward tandem of Giles and Brown could be really good on both ends of the floor.

Harry is starting to shake the rust off.  Started last night against Georgia Tech.  17 minutes, 10 points, 12 rebounds (7 O, 5 D).  Playing 5 on 5 is slowly coming back to him.  Defense coming back slower than offense.  Playing with brace on left knee (soph yr surgery & scope this fall on that knee)
"And so when we started winning, it was really cool. The thing I still remember, when we won the title [in 2008], I looked over and Tommy was crying. And I was thinking: He's the true definition of what a Celtic is. And he's the best. Tommy means the world to me."     Doc Rivers

I'd love it if he plays like the #1 player in the class and passed his medical tests. He would fit well with the roster we currently have, if we selected a pg or a sf I think we would have to make roster changes.

Frequently and liberal application of WD 40 to his knees ought to do the trick.  Let's do it.

I'm really rooting for Giles.. only because while Fultz and Ball are obviously top in this class currently... I just don't want this team to continue drafting guards lol.

Yeah, Yeah, "you idiot, you're supposed to draft by BPA.. not position by need".

But I like this guard lineup of IT/Bradley/Smart, and Giles, IF healthy (big IF), would fill a huge need for us. He also had a good game yesterday in 17 minutes of action (easing in).

We'll see what happens. I'm not against Fultz or Ball at all, but adding Giles would make it so much easier on this team. Otherwise, you have tough decisions to make at the guard position and such..

I'd like Giles to be considered no better than the 5th best prospect.  That way when the lottery inevitably doesn't go our way we can still pick the player who could be the best fit.

I having a really hard time passing on this guy assuming his knees check out. His offense is raw even when healthy but this kid checks off so many boxes for me. Lateral quickness, rebounding, offensive rebounding, ability to run the floor, rebound in traffic, weakside shot blocker, PnR D, above average offensive game.

I know he is a risk but its very hard for me to not take this guy based upon what he did after his other rehab.

I would love to be in Philly's spot right now because I think there is an off chance Giles could fall to around where the Lakers are projected to pick.

Im not sure what you consider as going our way. I consider it top 4. In my perfect world the Cs end up at 1 and Philly gets 3 and 7 and desperately wants Fultz. Would really put this team in a great position.

dude that would be awesome, I'm holding out hope on that #1 pick though. I think Philly will still have to add something to that trade if it is #1.

Im not sure they would. Its not like 1 is considered to be Davis or Town or a player like that. My premise is that if I could get Tatum and Giles you can trade away all the rest of those picks even the 18 for something.

That can be a better haul than just Fultz. then we can add another big in the 2018 draft. A future core lineup of Smart/Brown/Tatum/Giles/Ayton!?... it's gonna get spooky here in Beantown.
