Isn't Mo Wagner only 20 years old? If so I think he has a lot of room to grow, especially as a big man.

yup. he will be turning 21 at the end of this month

exactly.  Most big players take time to develop

DiVincenzo is looking like the best player on the floor right now.

Good, not great, college player who's going to struggle mightily, both defensively and on the boards, at the next level. I don't see much upside in Pittsnogle 2.0.

Reminds of Ainge in college. Also 65. Similar confidence.

That's a good comparison. I haven't see this kid play before but he was amazing in this game.

I like Wagner as a fringe NBA prospect who a team should take a shot at in the early to mid 2nd round range. Ultimately I hope he stays in school 1 more year and work on having a Frank Kamisky like senior season. Their stats as junior are very comparable. If Wagner continues to get stronger he could work his way into the first round next season.

As for the Celtics I do not think he will provide enough dynamic offense to make up for his defensive short comings and earn court time. He shares many of the defensive limitations as KO but is not nearly as over all skilled on offense.

I personally think the Cs will find themselves picking from a crop of talented but flawed guards/wings at the 27th pick. Such as  Grayson Allen, Rawle Alkins, Trent Jr, Melton or Frazier.

nbadraft.net has him at 40 (the latest mock was dated 3/29).  That seems about right.

They have the C's taking Caleb Martin at 27.
