I don't think he'll be on the board by the time Boston picks, but if Mitchell Robinson is somehow still available I feel like his potential upside is too good to pass up.

Otherwise, I'm not really a fan of any of the other bigs who might be available late in the first round.

So agree about this. With the way the league is going, feels like picking up a Whiteside, Jokic, even Capela in the second round, is getting less and less likely...

Also, this interview is bizarre. I kinda like that he says no more than absolutely required without even slightly coming off hostile. At first his answer to "what else would you be doing" comes off sounding pretty stupid, but then you realize he may just be a dyed in the wool baller. That "sir" thing to a journalist is cute.

Intriguing no doubt.

Trade it for a future 1st round pick.

There maybe good players in that spot, but I think we are all set and good to go even if we don't add any player with the guys coming back from injury.

Just move it and get a future 1st that we could use down the line.

But if we really are drafting somebody for it, if he's available, take Mitchell Robinson.

I have a question, does anyone know the last time the Celtics drafted someone who hadn't worked out for them?

Gerald Green?

James Young I think.

I'm inclined to agree, with Jontay Porter out of the draft.  Spellman looks like little more than a big 3 point bomber to me, and I like McCoy's potential based on his numbers but his weaknesses don't match up well with what our team requires of our bigs. 
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

Yep.  I remember getting crap from everyone here when I said that was a bad sign.

Hah, no.

"Another Greek Freak? While the younger brother of the Milwaukee Bucks superstar did not make a ton of noise in college, he quietly has top-30 projections in our NCAA, combine, international and AAU models (and 31st in our overall model). Kostas is an efficient scorer and elite shot-blocker; perhaps he'll also end up a late bloomer like his older brother, Giannis."

He is really quite a bad basketball player though. He didn't even start at Dayton, and he can't shoot from range or from the free throw line. He is most certainly not an NBA caliber player. Only getting looked at because of his surname really

Yeah, still no.  Calling Giannis a late bloomer compared to Kostas is absurd.  At the same age, Giannis had finished his second year in the NBA and was already giving average-to-above-average levels of production.  By this time in his career stardom was absolutely on the horizon.

Kostas didn’t play, and this model doesn’t know why.  That doesn’t mean there isn’t a good reason for it.

based off of workouts

Huerter

Divencenzo

Spellman

Allen

J Evans

Alkins

with the addition of Alkins and Evans that gets the list of projected 1st round picks who have worked out for the Cs up to 6

Huerter

Divencenzo

Spellman

Allen

J Evans

Alkins

B Brown

Brunson

Adding Brown means that 8 of the 10 players can be extrapolated from the team workouts. With Okogie rumored to be working out twice and Evans and Brown confirmed.

My guess at player who could be the last two based off of DA typical draft targets.

Melton
Diallo   
Duval
Troy Brown
Khyri Thomas
