Who should Celtics take with their last three draft picks?
In order for the Boston Celtics to successfully climb back into a state of NBA relevance, they need to nail the draft picks nobody expects them to nail.
This year, that means the 28th, 33rd and 45th selections. It's good timing too, considering next week's draft is supposed to have one of the deeper pools in recent memory. Here, Celticsblog's Kevin O'Connor takes a look at a few options Boston should have to choose from, including Stanford's Anthony Brown:
"He is excellent at relocating off-ball and has flashed potential shooting off screens. Brown needs to work on his defense, but he is an intelligent and motivated player that should improve on that end thanks to film study, his instincts, and effort, much like Middleton has in his NBA career with the Bucks. Players like Brown rarely don't bust, especially when they have the aptitude to be much more."
If the Celtics can find even one rotation player with a late first-round, early second-round pick, this draft will be a humongous success. What they can't afford is another bust, someone who brings the team no value on the court and trade market.
