Too much of a logjam at the guard/forward position.

Get me a big man in this draft esp when Horford becomes old and slow and ineffective.

IMO, unquestionably Doncic, but if we landed Bagley, I'd do cartwheels.

Danny won't pass up a player of LD's talent. Saying he's the best Euro prospect ever (or at least since the elder Sabonis) isn't an exaggeration.

And Bagley is such an explosive leaper and rebounder it gives us a dimension we don't have right now.

Shame our odds are so small.

Ayton is like the perfect addition to this current young core. I’d try to trade up and even give up the Memphis pick to move up a slot or two to select Ayton.

If not, take Doncic and figure it out later.  He’s unbelievably good at basketball and a proven winner at only 19.  His resume is insane and his basketball iq is generational.

This makes the most sense to me too, especially if the team with the first pick doesn’t really need a 5.

If Ayton is gone I'd take Porter

For this one, we'll need a lot of luck.

Doncic
Ayton
Bagley

In that order based on availability. I list Ayton because I think there's an outstanding chance he doesn't go #1

I'd love to have DeAnde Ayton.

He's just going to be a fit for us moving forward at the C spot. We won't have Al Horford for long, so he can be his understudy for a couple of years and take over after Al's deal expires.

But if can't, I personally wouldn't mind Marvin Bagley too. Superb talent. Mohamed Bamba fits in to what we need as well, along with being a top prospect.

I also would not mind trading it as well, maybe trade down and still stay in the top 10 (to be able to get Mikal Bridges) and maybe get a future 1st in the process.

I voted Doncic, if he were to join the Cs they would have a ridiculous wealth of wings. Minutes and rotations might be an issue but its a problem that I'm sure BS could figure out.

but

I suspect he will go number 1 and that a ton of lottery luck would leave the Celtics picking between Ayton and Jackson.

If this situation presented itself despite my affinity for Jackson Jr. I would have to take Ayton. Jackson is 1 year younger and the fare superior defender but Ayton has the physical tools to be an all time great NBA center. Getting him to properly develop to maximize those tools would be the job on BS who I trust to properly develop Ayton. If drafted by a losing Franchise I fear Ayton will develop into a offensively dominate center who's dominate stat lines will not translate into winning basketball. However on the Cs he would initially be a role player on offense something that would greatly benefit his game.

Ayton's potential with that physical profile and high offensive skill level is quite frightening. Would be awesome if we somehow snagged him - seeing him go against Embiid for years to come would be super fun

I feel more and more crazy every day about it but I think I have Jackson at #1 on my board. So i'm doing whatever option there is to get him. If that means drafting him at 2 or 3 if I don't have a trade back available then so be it.

The ESPN Mock Lottery combination board I tried like 80 times and the few times we came in it showed we go with Donic @ #2 and it seems Jaren Jackson @ #3.

Depending on who gets #1 it's either Ayton 1 and Doncic 2 or vice versa.


Hey Jaylen. I lost 519 Tommy Points betting on you guys and lost

I might literally have a heart attack if we could snag Ayton in the draft. That’d be too perfect.

I have been wondering about potentially moving up to the mid lottery area for a big if the pick doesn’t convey. I have my eyes on Bamba, as I could see a couple of teams passing on him or not being thrilled about taking him.

Depending on the team, I wonder if something like the Sacramento pick, our pick this year, and Rozier (I might even add the Clippers pick if need be, too) would be enough to move up to around the 5-8 range to select Bamba. He needs some development time, but he’d fill a really big need at C for us for a long time moving forward, along with having the potential to deal with Embiid down the road after putting on size.

Imagine a lineup of Kyrie, Brown, Hayward, Tatum, and Bamba once Horford’s contract expires!  :o
