Thanks. I looked him up and he does show promise but I would need to see how it translates to the NBA. I don't know of many 6'4" or 6'5" guys I feel comfortable with guarding a Kevin Love or even LBJ. I never feel the mismatch when it's Smart because he always seems to make special plays when needed but again thanks for the name so I could check him out. It looks like you lost some TPs also so you get one from me buddy.

Yeah he doesn't have the bulk Smart does to handle guys in the post. But he is actually a hybrid of Bradley and Smart. He has more length and instincts like Smart but athletic ability and better shooting like AB. But he will go in the bottom half of the lottery.

I think the closest thing to a Marcus Smart in this draft is Bruce Brown, hands down. He could very well be available at 27. He's also a Boston boy. The problem is the draft happens before free agency starts. Such is the dilemma for Danny and the C's.

Does Melton interest any of you guys? He's more of a combo guard but I can see Danny liking him, tenacious defender and seems to be able to carve out an AB like career given he works on that shot, maybe with more slashing and ball handling.

This may be what Ainge is also thinking when it comes to resigning smart.

This is a good thing. Danny can draft a poor man's Marcus or another style of SG before he has to make a decision on Marcus. It gives him a little bit more leverage not to overpay. I think Danny's goal should be to maintain a fiscally responsible team vs signing one player that isn't good enough to start.
