one of them has to be Ayton.

the other is Michael Porter Jr.  Unfortunately, it is very unlikely that Bagley joins the class.

Why ?

Well if not we can pick him with the 2019 pick

Bagley and Barrett are sick
we don't have a 2019 pick unless the lakers do good. Lol

I think it would be Bamba and Porter. Both have been long time Team USA players. Bamba is highly intellegent. I think Ayton will have to prove alot this year for Ainge to take him. Mainly in the work ethic department. Dont have an opinion on how he would feel about Doncic.

Just some quick thoughts.

I think bamba could be underrated. If he comes out guns blazing in college and ayton still has this motor issues, bamba should stay in front of him in mocks

Sign me up for Bamba, Ayton, Porter, or Robert Williams.

I'm less enthused by Doncic, mainly because he doesn't seem that explosive. He appears to have a polished offensive game. Don't we already have a similar player in Hayward?

I'd normally say pick BPA, but I really don't think the Celtics need another 6'7/6'8 player.

I've actually read that Bamba has serious motor issues as well.  Like Ayton, he does not consistently play hard.

He also gets injured frequently according to his profile on DraftExpress.

I want Ayton and Bagley iii if possible.

Then Michael Porter Jr.
Then Bamba.

I don't like Doncic as much as most people here.

I will grateful if one of the nets/lakers picks land in the top 5

BPA

we could use a big player to take over Horfords spot in 2 years though

Honest to god truth is I'd be ecstatic with any sort of combination of the aforementioned prospects should the Cs be lucky enough to get two top 5 picks.

In a perfect world, they would draft a big and a wing for me.

Ainge is going to look like an effing genius is he somehow comes up with Brown/Tatum/Porter/Ayton after 3 years of drafting. 4 legit blue chip prospects on the roster without tanking. And imagine if all those guys actually pan out too? They have to add a statue of Ainge next to Red.

Exactly,  Horford has one or two good years left.  We need someone to be ready to replace him. The sooner the better

I'd want them to trade down from 1 & 2 to 3 & 4 or 4 & 5 because they see little separation between the top 5 and they get two extra top 1sts in 2019/2020.  8)

we don't have a 2019 pick unless the lakers do good. Lol

And even if they do, we still won't have a top 2019 pick because we won't get SAC's pick if it comes in at #1. If Bagley doesn't come out this year, we have virtually no chance of getting him next year, except in the very unlikely scenario where SAC gives us the #2 pick and somebody is good enough to get selected before Bagley.

Doncic would be more a long term replacement for IT. My guess we'll gun for one of Bagley or Porter, and then Doncic.

That would give us a long term starting 5 of Doncic/Brown/Tatum/Bagley or Porter/Zizic

true but these mocks always change. I think Dennis smith and josh Jackson were #1 back and forth before the season started last year. You can see how things change with hype. Fultz had a good year so he had a lot of hype

Some people on here are underselling Porter. He'll be the best player in the draft (after Bagley :) )
This could be our chance to be the GSW of the East, if we can somehow land those two beasts.
I like Bamba and Ayton but I'd take Porter and Bagley first without question. I'm a BIG Bagley fan.

Bagley & trade.

Plenty of time to change my mind, but I'm not as high on these other potential top picks as most people seem to be.  But Bagley looks like a monster.
