With Smart they already have three solids for the PG position next season (as it is I can't imagine Tremont back again, even on a two-way), and of them Kemba and Pritchard are both small. So I can't see Brad looking forward to another year with three smurfs--even with Waters gone.
Yam Madar is 6' 3", the same height as Marcus Smart, and also the average height of an NBA point guard. He's not really a smurf. You do have a point, though, about the PG position being filled, at least for now. If the Celtics decide to move Kemba... In any case, Yam is playing well, and looks to be ready. Will we see him for Summer League or training camp? It would be nice to see him matched up against NBA talent.
Unfortunately he's so slight that he's just an elongated smurf at this point. Will there be a SL?
He could stand to put on some weight, certainly, and he has the frame for it. In looking at his videos, I don't come away thinking that he is "so slight" though. But sure, he could benefit from an added 10-15 pounds. In any case, check out this scouting report from NBA.com, and watch some more of his highlight videos. Hard not to feel excitement about what he might bring to the Celtics.
