I've said this over and over. The Cs need Bigs with Length and Wing Players who are lights out from beyond the arc.
What the Cs should do:
Keep the picks. This is a deep draft. That might not be the case in near future drafts. Especially, when that dorky commissioner is trying to force players to stay on the NCAA farm for two years.
Be patient. The Days when the Cs could rely on the stupidity of other teams is long gone. Very rarely is a player of KG's caliber going to become available. The Cs must rely on the draft since Boston isn't a preferred FA destination.
Let all of the toxic contracts expire. When you trade an expiring contract, you'll get worse contracts in return to along with something beneficial. The dollars must match in NBA trades. The Cs currently have 3 toxic deals on the books: Bogans, Green, and Wallace. These deals will expire two years from now. After this season, Bass, Anthony, and Rondo's contracts will expire. That's about $26mill off the books. This would give them a fighting chance at Love at the very least in the summer of 2015.
Possibilities with the #6 and #7 picks: (#6 Doug McDermott #17 Kristaps Porzingis) McDermott measured well and showed athleticism at the Combine. I got the balls to say this. He reminds me, offensively, of Larry Bird. DMD is elite from beyond the arc, is a great passer, and can move without the ball. He has the same shooting mechanics as Dirk (the knee lift on the jump). He's a classic Celtic-type player. Porzingis is from Latvia and plays in Spain (one of the better Euro Leagues). He turns 19 on 08/02/14, has length, is one of the best shot blockers in the history of U-19, can shoot 3s, runs well in transition, and has a soft touch around the rim. He needs to add bulk, strength, and toughness. Par for the course for all bigs his age. Great potential, with 2 years remaining on his Spain contract. Plenty of time to improve. An ideal "draft-and-stash" player.
