Analysis: With Rajon Rondo's future up in the air, could the Celtics take the guy who many scouts compare to a young Rondo? Both are quick, long and have huge hands. Both play a frantic style of basketball and both have swagger. The rumors flying around Chicago were that Schroeder had a promise from a team. The Celtics seem like just the sort of team that would try to lock him down.
I hope ford is wrong about this. I dont see how its possible da doesnt draft a center. Cleary a position of need and this draft has many options (dieng, plumlee, adams,gobert)
We are all set at pg with rondo, we dont need to waste our highest pick in years on a backup pg whos gonna see 10 minutes a game, and we really dont need another guard who cant shoot, we have plenty of those (bradly, lee, crawford. twill). Plus i think we found a backup point in twill already.
We need a long, strong, athletic big. I for one like adams and dieng. Both are very strong rebounders and defenders. With good size and strength. Not gonna give u much on the offensive but we r gonna be in desperate need of a big especially once kg is gone. The thought of which is horrifying when you consider our backups (melo,wilcox, and randolph).
