    If the Celts start next season with neither Love nor Embiid I'll be very disappointed.    And if it unfolds that way, kiss another 4 years goodbye.

    I want Embiid tonight.   Make it happen DA!

    If Embiid is available at 6th my guess is they take him unless the prognosis is poor.  He's a risk, with a very high reward ceiling in a position they need to address.

    • Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reports the Utah Jazz are starting to lean toward Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart with the fifth pick, despite Smart not working out for the Jazz at all.

    [object HTMLDivElement]  This whole story could just be smoke and mirrors to discourage anyone else from picking Embiid before them.

    I am starting to fear fierce is right, doesn't feel like much happening.  On a different note, don't you think nash would just retire if  he got traded to a rebuilding team?  On a different note, we have until the 12th to use the tpe, so if it doesn't get used tonite that doesn't mean anything.  On a different note, I really don't feel like waiting 2 years for Saric.

    Embiid is not going to be there at the start of the season even if we pick him.

    So how about this possibility, Embiid at #6, Saric at #17, Rondo and Green are traded for future picks.

    Doubtful Ainge goes for both Embiid and Saric.  He very well might take a shot at one.  Green is prolly gone today or soon.

    I expect Rondo will be with the C's at least to the 2015 trade deadline.

    That would certainly be fireworks but, not the type I'd be looking for.

    But you know, obviously if they move down, it is with more picks in mind..so, thats a +

    • Aaron Gordon will "almost assuredly" be drafted before Noah Vonleh and Julius Randle, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. Hmm.

    Noah Vonleh is on the slide in this draft, front office sources tell Yahoo Sports. Best first chance to be picked: Lakers.

    Just to manage expectations, latest from Ainge is that he expects to keep the picks and draft at the expected positions (yawn - though he could be misdirecting and I'm sure he is still working the phones - but the fact is we don't have many assets to do amazing things with)

    http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/celtics/post/_/id/4713535/ainge-sets-table-for-draft" rel="nofollow">http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/celtics/post/_/id/4713535/ainge-sets-table-for-draft

    a better hope is that something great lands in our lap (e.g. Paul Pierce type pick, which I think is possible in this draft, I believe there are 2-3 hall of fame, or at least, perennial all start players in the top ten of this draft. No Lebrons or Tim Duncans but some good players - pick em Danny!

    Latest mock draft has Gary Harris falling in our lap at 17 (fingers crossed)!
