 December highlights here https://youtu.be/0tnuVQTwnd4

 Horford
 Tatum
 Hayward
 Kyrie
 Trae Young

 Offensively that team is unstoppable. Defensively, bring back Smart, Plus Jaylen Brown, Rozier, Morris, Semi

 Young shoots 10 3s per game at .413% Plus Young is an amazing passer. He's twice the passer Lonzo Ball is and he scores 30 PPG. He's incredible.

 Right now he's the second best player in the draft IMO.

I am not a fan of that team at all on defence. Horford and Tatum would get slaughtered inside by legitimate bigs, and Kyrie and Young wouldn't be able to defend any of the good back-courts in the NBA (GSW, Washington, Portland, Houston etc.)

I wouldn't pick him over Doncic, Ayton, or Bagley. He's on the same tier as Porter and Bamba for me.

Yeah, Trae could be a great NBA ready PG back up, in the event Marcus and or Terry get traded.

Looks like the order of preference at this stage should be:

Ayton*
Bamba*
Bagley
Young
Porter
Doncic
Jaren J..

He is like Kyrie 2.0 as far as his handle, passing ability, and court vision. Although I would much prefer Ayton, Bagley, Porter, Doncic, and Bamba ahead of him, I would definitely not be upset to wind up with this guy as a real and true backup PG, and even to share the floor with Kyrie at times.

 I would say most draft boards would look like this at the top

#1Bagley
#2 Luka
#3 Ayton
#4 Young
#5 Porter Jr
#6 Bamba


 More Positives on Young

I'm not so sure about the handle. If you look at the NWSU highlights, it seems like he always drives to the right. I think NBA scouting and defense would make life on the court a lot more difficult for him.

 I'm now secretly hoping for Trae Young. Currently the only player in NCAA history to lead the league in points per game 30 and assists per game 10.7 the only people in the company of Trae Young and the last 20 years are Kevin Durant Michael Beasley and Carmelo Anthony.

You're not too familiar with the concept of secrets are you? ;D

I think the top 3 is going to be very fluid, as is the next 3.  Two clear tiers to me.

2018 draft prospect Trae Young - Apparently the next coming of Steph Curry

I only seen highlights and looked at his stats and game logs...   (so if anybody else know more chime in)

per eye test ...yes looks like and plays almost identical to Curry.   He is really quick to the basket but not much of a leaper.   Super quick, compact jump shot stroke but again doesn't jump very high.   He has climbed into top 5 pick conversations


here are highlights of his play so far....

Jimmer Fredette was also a good scorer literally carrying his team in the NCAA. Let's see how this turns out.

Fredette never moved like Curry nor Young

different potential

Stop watching highlights, and start watching games.

I don't see Danny taking Young at 2. Maybe at 3 or 4.

I think Bagley/Ayton is the guy at #2, at least at this point. I think the Celtics could use a Ray Allen/Klay Thompson shooter and another talented big man to partner with Al Horford as he winds down his career.

That Ray Allen/Klay Thompson type could probably be of some use. Ainge should look into acquiring one of the 3 or 4 best shooters ever.
