With all what's going on and having (at this time) 8 draft picks and a ton of cap space, I figured to raise up a thread for them

Pick #3 Jaylen Brown. I am happy that Boston didn't go after another PG so for that I am happy. Brown is good. I would have preferred Bender, though I can see that being only still 18, was probably just too young and needed too much time before he makes an impact.

one pick down, 17 to go Shocked Very Happy

Ya'll have to make trades. Just too much "meh" on the team.

Pick number 16 - Guerschon Yabusele , 6'8 269 combo Forward. over 7 ft winspan

I do like the pick, but wonder if Deyonta Davis or Elleson would have been better. But at 20 years old he seems to have some enforcer in him with a nice outside ouch. Being compared to Draymond Green in that he is an multi-position "less" player.

again not bad but not great either. we will see.

Who is this guy you drafted? I've never heard of him in my life. Not that I'm some NBA draft guru in the slightest, but this seemed like a weird pick.

After looking at all the video available I am really starting to warm up to Jaylen Brown. Freakishly good athlete who excels at attacking to either his right or left. Considering how bad the Celtics supposedly wanted Winslow, it makes sense. And JB has a lot more upside IMO.

needs a lot more polish and more work on his jump shot, but NBA ready body and defensive potential right off the bat.

same here. Gonna trust that Ainge did his work. High lights do show a very strong physique and some skillz. I can only hope he is a diamond in the rough.

Celtics trade 31 and 35 for future 1st from Memphis (but from the Clippers)


at 45 Celtics draft Demetrious Jackson, 6'1 PG with explosive athletics and a 1st rd grade. Good value.

at 51 Boston drafts PF Ben Bentil, a spot up PF at 6'8. also decent value.

Now of only they had some roster spots available. Confused

I like the draft for the Cs. Would have preferred a veteran trade but I like it nonetheless

Im not going to sit here and be mad at the pick because we didn't aquire an all-star caliber player. We are in a good position for the future regardless of trade. Danny does need to pick the right guys though over the next 2 drafts.

Think I would have preferred the Nerlens Noel deal that was rumored to be on the table. Confused

Obviously Boston will make.a.run.on.Durant, but I wonder who.else.they may go after. Dwight or.Horford.

I don't think KD will come here now. Had we acquired Butler I think he would've been all over it, but oh well. I think we should toss a max at Whiteside and call it a day. Pray for a top 3 pick again next year from Brooklyn and the skys the limit.
