Per @BrianTRobb on @985TheSportsHub today, the #Celtics did in fact explore trading up for Michael Porter, Jr on Draft Night.

The Cs also considered moving up for Robert Williams before gambling hed fall to No. 27, which he obviously did.

Not surprised, MPJ is mine, and Ainge's binkie. I think within a full year of recovery, and the necessary conditioning to ensure his body holds up, he'll be very fun to watch in a few years.

His health can be very worrisome, but that is just how it is. Taking a flier on a guy projected to be top 7 lottery pick, ended up falling into the 14th pick. It's a no brainier, just like Williams. They pan out, or they don't.

Glad we didn't get MPJ. Don't think his game will translate as well as others do, and I don't want any part of that back

I think he has hip problems too

The spasms he had during workouts was not due to the back but the hips

I would have loved a gamble on Porter.  Then again, I was all for gambling on Oden, too.   :(

I think Ainge is an opportunist and the guy dropped and that is why he tried to get him.   I think that he will struggle some because back injuries are brutal and he is not very athletic and can't jump that well.

I think that Porter is going to have real problems, he has had the same back surgery that Steve Kerr has been struggling with and finished Tiger's career. I think the most pertinent fact is that Jerry West and Steve Ballmer have been in love with Porter since High School had two chances to take Porter and passed both times, I'd say the doctors reports say do not draft this guy.

Yeah, LAC passing on him twice is incredibly [dang]ing

Jerry West has been a drafting savant for close to 40 years and is responsible for 6 Lakers titles and was one of the major factors in constructing the Warriors championships, convincing the GM not to trade Thompson for Love and convincing Durant to come to Oakland, if he passes on a risky player twice there is serious reason why.
