Just Terrence Davis from Ole Miss from what I can tell. I thought Kabengele may have had two, but was mistaken and its only once.

This week is when we should begin with our second workouts.

Draft excitement has waned not even knowing if we're drafting for ourselves.

Pretty much. Most are talking about a AD draft that isn’t even happening for Boston. How much can people talk about Davis. It either happens or it doesn’t.

Draft talk should pick up more momentum in the the next few days. I’m exited about the draft and I’m going in with the mindset that we are keeping the picks or at least 2 out of the 3 first rounders l. Than take it from there.

I’m hoping for a trade into the top-10. I think there’s a lot of high potential guys in the top-10.

we should use this opportunity to get back to the drawing board. maybe AL opts out and walks- let him go! use every pick on a big. Max contract Dlo----

Is anyone going to the airport to greet Goga Bitadze?

It would be the polite thing to do, and he would probably do the same thing for you. If you do go, wear your number 5 Celtics jersey.


He does seem to be hitting threes like Tatum in his other draft workouts. May not last to 14.

That could move Bol Bol Bol to 14?
Markelle has Faults, Lonzo can't Ball, Jayson Tatum is the best player in his draft.

What’s the deal with bol bol? Are his injuries a concern at the next level? The guy’s 7’2 and 210 soaking wet. Needs to about weight.

A lot of pressure for Danny to hit a home run in this draft. He needs to find the diamonds in the rough. Is a guy like Grant Williams the type of player people are sleeping on? This draft is filled with guys 4-30 that are all really tough to gauge. Some GM will look like a genius. Ainge has 3 chances.

I don’t think he will fall all the way to 22.

Wish we could get the 21 OKC wants to unload.. this is such a nail biting draft because the value of our picks depends on what the teams ahead of us do - if Little is there at 14, Hachimura at 20, Bitadze at 22, you’re getting three lottery caliber prospects - but it’s easy to mock a draft where we get one pick at 14 without Little or Rui on the board, then see all our other targets disappear before we get to 20-

If Danny keeps all 3 picks and Bol is still around at 20 or 22, I'm fine with rolling the dice on him. But this isn't a kid that will be durable. So the hope is that he is healthy and plays well for a season or 2, builds value and can be flipped in a trade package.

Well now that Davis is no longer an option it would make sense that we keep our pick at 14. Brandon Clarke or Nic Claxton, who is flying up mocks, seem tailor-made for us.

Package 20 & 22 to move up and give me both. Them and Williams with Jays, Smart and Terry would be a great reset. Either keep Al and Gordon to remain competitive or flip them for future assets, if they agree. Both paths work for me.

All 3 picks spend all year in Maine anyway. That's even if we pick them. That's why I really hate the NBA draft.

Track record outside the lottery since 2014.

2018 - TBD

2017 - Semi (37), Allen (53), Bird (56). Semi is still TBD. Bird could play, too bad he couldn't stay out of trouble.
Missed on: Monte Morris at #51


2016 - Yabu (16), Zizic (23), plus a ton of trash in the second round including Nader (58), Demetrius Jackson (45) and Ben Bentil (51) :banghead:
Missed on: too many to name. LeVert at #20. Pascal Siakam at #27. Dejounte Murray at #29. Malik Beasley at #19. Brodgon at #36. FVV went undrafted.


2015 - Scary Terry (16) (not the worst pick, but I don't want to see him in green ever again), RJ Hunter (28), Jordan Mickey (33), Marcus Thornton (45).
Missed on: Montrezl Harrel at #32, Josh Richardson at #40, Connaughton at #41, Norman Powell at #46 (one pick after we took Thornton).

2014 - James Young (17)
Missed on: Gary Harris at #19, Rodney Hood at #23, Clint Capela at #25, Bogdan Bogdanovic at #27. Missed on guys like the Joker, Joe Harris and Spencer Dinwiddie in the second round, but we apparently didn't have any second round picks

He's been the "director of player personnel" since 2011. As far as what that involves...I'm not the one to ask. Assume he does a lot of scouting stuff.
