Caleb Swanigan - a big who can rebound, shoot, and pass.

What's the downside with Swanigan? His numbers are great. DE mentions his lack of speed especially on defense.

Yes, I think that's it. He's not that fast.  But he's a skilled big who could be as good as Kelly defensively.

Watch the replay of Purdue's game against Iowa State yesterday for an example.  He was exploited on D in the second half.  Now, he did more than enough offensively to make up for it, but he was just  too slow to keep up with players off the dribble.

I'm hoping for Josh Hart at 33 and the rest international draft and stash

I feel bad for Hart; following your strong Mickey and Sabonis endorsements you just gave him your yearly kiss of death.
Triboy quick hits - Mickey ceiling is a better shot blocking but 6'8 version of Bosh. Mickey is going to be a gem but not likely a future hof. Mickey can't play the 3? Mickey has ability to spin with his right/left hand.  Shoot the 3. Blow by guys, fakes, up and unders, explosive finishes at rim. Hard to contain. You dont get the value of him yet.

He has a very long way to be as good as Kelly defensively.  He's injured Sully defensive quality at present.

Ok...I think he can get there.  I like his current production and his long term potential.

Mathias Lessort is an interesting guy in this range.  Looks longer and more athletic than GY, can shoot a bit out to 20'.  Check out this DE video:

I agree

Better suited for the 90s

The guy is a beast going after EVERY single rebound and he's a mountain to move off the block. He's not a great athlete but can shoot a little from outside. His main strength is rebounding so he'll have a job coming off the bench. He can obviously score inside as well but can't jump higher than his kneecaps.

I don't think Alonzo Trier will be as good as Avery Bradley or as gritty as Smart, but if we have to let one of them go after next year I wouldn't mind grabbing Trier if we have room for him and end up with either Josh Jackson or Jayson Tatum.  He's young and is a pretty consistent and solid scorer.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

After watching yesterday's games, I'll take the Wagner kid from Michigan.  Kid was beasting out there against Louisville's bigs.

If you watched more Michigan games, you would hate him, if you're like most Celtics fans.  Great kid, talented offensively, but is an incredible defensive liability due to his consistently poor positioning and tendency to commit dumb touch fouls as a result.  He makes Olynyk look good in that department. 

Imagine Olynyk with worse ball skills and defense.  He needs another year to work on that stuff -- I don't think he'll get that necessary court time in D-league or on an NBA bench.
