The Cs and other teams try to meet with a range of players at the combine in order to establish relationships in case or trades or future free agency.

updated 5/22

to date I would rank the workout prospects as follows

1. Okogie
2. DiVincenzo
3. Spellman
4. Washington
5. Huerter
6. Ponds
7. Bowen

not counting Brown or Martin yet because I haven't been able to confirm.

Those 7 are players I could see the Cs taking at #27.

The rest of the workout prospects are likely 2 way contract  later 2nd round guys who the Cs could either trade to get a late 2nd or wait to see who goes undrafted.

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
Really like the way Spellman played in the tourney - good shooter from 3 too. Wouldn't be a bad pick.

I see Spellman and Jontay Porter as real possibilities and players who could be mini Als.
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

Report: Seton Hall's Desi Rodriguez works out with Boston Celtics

27 seems high for Rodriguez but he does look like an athlete that can shoot the three. Maybe Danny is buying a second round pick?

Cs have been rumored to be looking to add a 2nd round pick. Also worth noting that some of these players may get red claw invites or be undrafted free agent camp invites

Good point. I think there is a good chance that Rodriguez goes undrafted. There also might be some good draft and stash players in the 2nd round of this draft: Kurucs, Bonga, Kulboka,Tryggvi Hlinason...

Would be good but I'm not sure he stays in the draft or if he does than he has a promise. Getting Jontay at 27 would be real good value.

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe that there are some mock drafts projecting him going late in the 1st round, or in the 2nd round.

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

I think your right but I'm not sure if he's staying in the draft if he slips. When is the date to pull out?
