How about Jontay Porter? Micheal Porter Jr.'s brother.

isn't he Monroe slow?
Nah, not comparable speed wise. Jontay hasnít lost his puppy fat, mainly because heís still really young. Sorta like Smart when he entered the league.

Jontay can hit the 3 though, which makes him a lot more useful in our offence
Was he projected to be a good rim-protector? I don't really follow players in the draft that often, I only know of him because somebody mentioned him as a possible Celtic's prospect.

No, defense is away behind offense. 

Tryggvi Hlinason however is huge and a shot blocker. It's very hard to tell his foot speed due to competition.

The list is getting long so I went back and put in bolt the players who have a shot at going 1st round. Ponds isn't typically viewed as a 1st round pick but my opinion is that he could be a surprise pick. Maybe not for the Cs but a team in need of PG depth could take a shot at him given his scoring and ability to run the P&R.

interesting.

he was projected as a second rounder coming into this season and he had an underwhelming senior year.  as a local guy, I hope he does well representing URI in the draft but I suspect if he makes a team it'll be as a training camp invitee (and not necessarily the C's)

  • A true Celtic plays with heart.
Either DiVincenzo, Spellman, or even Porter Jr., I would be thrilled with. I really wouldn't be pleased if we drafted Grayson Allen.

The Cs are rumored to be interested in getting a 2nd round pick. Matthews, Pinson and Barnett are  prime candidate to be drafted late in the 2nd with a predetermined agreement to sign with the Cs on a 2-way deal.

just curious - where did you here that? 

If Mathews had played up to his projections, I could see the C's looking at him as an option in the second round.

And it's weird.  Maybe they think he's a bad fit on defense, or maybe they don't want to work him out now to show interest?  Because he can hit the 3, pass about as well as any big man in the country, is a legit 6'11", and got like 7 rebounds and 1.7 blocked shots in 25 mpg. 

He seems like as decent a mini-Al as you could hope to find at #27.  Maybe we think there is a lot of depth at SG though, and we can find a 6th-man caliber SG at #27.  Certainly possible.

Omari Spellman seems like a real possibility at #27. The Cs have been trying to develop a back up who can play a similar role as Al. First it was Mickey who had potential on D but never developed on the perimeter and didn't seem strong enough. Now its Yabu who has a chance but needs to show that he can be consistent on D.

Spellman is an interesting fit. He already played the role at Villinova and is already a very good 3pt shooter.

His measurements are similar to Al's

Spellman
6'8 W/O shoes 253lbs and a 7'2 wingspan with 13.75% BF

Horford
6'8 W/O shoes 246lbs and a 7'.075" wingspan @ 9% BF

If Spellman can continue to trim down and plays in the 240s he might add enough lateral quickness to excel in Al's role down the road.


I also have to point out that DiVincenzo could be an interesting pick
 

I like Spellman but I don't think he's shown any ability as a facilitator, the way Jontay Porter has.  Not sure he can play Al's role without this skill.  That said, he was a great 3 point shooter this year, and a good rebounder, and he has the potential to play competent D.
