The Boston #Celtics “Loved” what they saw from Duke Grayson Allen in his pre draft workout.

Danny Ainge on Allen: “When you watch him play, you see this fluidity and smoothness that not to many players have. His character is exactly what we want here.

I like him, but where would he honestly see minutes on this team? Skilled offensive player, but his defense is suspect, and he has below average lateral quickness.

Is the glass half-full or half-empty?

true but the pickings are slim in the late 1st. I guess we could learn towards a project big

If smart is not on the team anymore, he’d get minutes

If we keep Smart over Rozier, he could replace some of Rozier's scoring.

I’m hoping for a draft-and-stash big.  Even someone who needs 2-3 more years before coming over.  Allen at best would be our #3 PG for his first two seasons.  I’m fine with that for a high-ceiling teenager, but not a college senior.  Last PG on the roster is a role for vet mins or guys with a lot of development left.

Now that we have plenty of wings, and ball handlers, we should be focusing on getting stash bigs with low risk to high reward potential.

Grayson Allen really doesn't fit on ths team. I don't like always having to rely on Tatum at spots at the 4. I think he's done remarkably well at the 3, and Jaylen Brown terrorizes 2's on defense.

PJ Washington is ok but hasnt really Impressed. Mitchell Robinson isn't playing basketball oddly but could be a steal. Haven't looked into wagner yet

I think Robinson could be a good grab if we aim for a big with that Pick

He can defend at as well as Smart can shoot.

I'm skeptical of him in the NBA.

Yeah, that's true, and it's really sad for both players. I like Allen but he's  a poor man's Jimmer Fredette. He'll probably kill it in China.

Absolutely not.  Has everyone forgotten how he's tripped players in the past?  That's not basketball, imo.  No, if you want a guard at that spot, put me down for Rawle Alkins.

He's had to get his foot in the door, somehow......

Yeah that's not basketball. He's a scrappy player but I'd be wary of the feet work.
