update (second one of the day)

added the rest of the list of players in for todays workout

https://twitter.com/KeithSmithNBA/status/1005076660109103105

This is a really interesting group as all 5 would make sense on this roster. Allen is the only one who has any first round buzz but the rest could fit if the Cs add a 2nd round pick.

Billy Preston is the dark horse of the group. He was highly ranked out of high school but was never eligible to play for KU. He has great size and a diverse skill set. He could be a surprise option at #27. Ill start a separate post to talk about him

You know I’m a fan of the all wing lineup.  I also want to see the all-PG lineup with Smart at center.

Kristap Porzinigis or Paul Millsap might vehemently disagree with that Smart lineup.

Anyone can give me a summary of bigs we've worked out and expressed interest in that are realistically available with our pick? TP to whoever that can help :laugh:.

To date it looks like Preston and Spellman are the only bigs who the Cs have worked out that have stayed in the draft. Spellman could be a realistic pick at #27 and Preston would be a surprise.

This article estimates the Cs have had in 50 prospects. This thread has 34 accounted for....

TP for the article :). This part was quite revealing, to say the least -

“In 2008, we were unprepared for how we’d handle a deep playoff run [scouting-wise],” Celtics assistant general manager Mike Zarren said. “We got through it, but we just hadn’t planned out what was going to happen.

“We didn’t have as big of a group then as we have now in terms of scouts and data people. There’s just a lot of stuff to do, and if you don’t plan it well, it’s very hard to get everything done.”

There it is ::). WOW :o. *facepalm*

I agree he is an exciting addition to the workout list. Just listened to an interview he gave after Kings workout. Really seems like an intelligent kid who understand what he needs to do early in in the league.

updated

added Allonzo Trier, he appears to be part of the Grayson Allen workout today (6/8)

I liked Trier last year as a prospect we could maybe snag via buying a 2nd round pick (we ended up doing that with Semi).  In this year's draft I am not as familiar with the players as last year, but it seems like there is tons of competition at SG, and Trier doesn't stand out to me as much.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing
