    Bundle Rondo and the #25th pick  and move up at least to the 24th pick.

    [QUOTE]I would package with a current player to move up or a vet player. Doc isn't playing a rookie next year.
    Posted by BiasLewis[/QUOTE]

    I like the vet idea. I would move up in this draft if it didn't cost us anything.

    My short list is Biyombo,Fredette,Markief Morris,Trey Thompkins and Marshon Brooks.

    Low post scorers - Hard to find
    Hustle rebounders and shot blockers- Easier to find
    sharp shooting guards- very easy to find

    Complete players at any position- almost impossible to find.

    Fredette is intriguing. I think I am drinking th 28 PPG koolaid. I made the same mistake think Jospeh Forte would be good. High point production often doen not  translates into NBA quality. I think Danny might like him with the BYU connection.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: What would you do with Pick #25? : Well, he tried Bradley and Luke earlier this year but both clearly failed.  I think it comes down to the quality of the rookie!  Clearly, a young Bradley and a scared Luke just weren't ready to play on this team.   If we got a great rookie, I think he'd play more minutes.
    Posted by Celtsfan4life[/QUOTE]

    You might be right, but Doc definitely doesn't give rookies much of a chance.  If he gave them more playing time, maybe they would develop into a good player by the end of the season.  They all spend too much time on the bench.

    Yes.  That is a Danny kind of pick.  He has a propensity to take chances on potential.  Some times it pans out: Al Jefferson, Kendrick Perkins, Rondo, Powe, Baby.  Some times it does not: Marcus Banks, others.  Jury is still out on Bradley.  We will know next year which way that pick will go.  I can see Jeremy Tyler in green.

    To answer your question....You don't!  Especially in a weak draft.  

    However, remember Bradley didn't come at #25 in 2010.  We had number 19.  And people like Anderson (Spurs), Neal (Spurs), and Fields (Knicks) were available when we picked.  Same story the year before.

    Well, he gave a lot of time to rookies named Al Jefferson, Delonte West, Rajon Rondo, Marcus Banks, Baby Davis, Kendrick Perkins, and other young players like Ryan Gomes.   That's in addition to the ones he had in Orlando who were in their 1st and second years and who's names were Ron Mercer (31 min/gm in his second yr), Chucky Atkins (19.7 min/gm in his rookie year), Ben Wallace (24min/gm in his 3rd yr), Drew Gooden (rookie), Mike Miller (29 min/gm in his rookie yr), Tracey McGrady (in his 3rd yr), Corey Magette (18 mins/gm as rookie), etc.   Go to http://www.basketball-reference.com/teams/ORL/2000.html to get the stats for 2000 and then go to 2001 and 2002, as well.

    I think fans are angry because Doc pushed hard for a championship and in looking for answers, we'd like to think these rookies/young players would make a difference.  But, they wouldn't imo.  Without injuries, Delonte would get as many minutes as BBD (both young).  But, Luke and Bradley just weren't ready and it showed when he played.

    For every player that you name Danny taking, there are two that he could have taken that were better players.

    So, basically, not Big Baby

    or Jordan Williams for that matter - I heard his athleticism is below average

    Yes when I re-read that I agreed that a 21 year old rookie cannot easily replace big baby.

    What I should have said was that someone like Jordan Williams, currently in better shape pre-draft than during the season from all reports, who was a 12 rebound guy in 32 mins at Maryland... can prob get as many rebounds in less mins than Baby did.

    Rebounding was the teams biggest issue after injuries the past 2 years.

    Re: What would you do with Pick #25?

    Last 3 seasons Baby avg'd 22-23 minutes a game and avg'd 4.4 rebounds. Reggie Evans, same height as Baby, is a career 19.5 minute 7 rebound guy.

    I'd hope/assume that Jordan Williams gave us those same 4.4 rebounds in 14-15 minutes a game next year and then just reaches his ceiling as a solid 7th man backup to both big man positions. A 25-28 minute guy getting like 9-11 points (lil more than BBD) but like 8 boards (way more) and making 1-2 million less per year at the same ages 23-25 we just got out of Baby.

    I want KG to be a 24-28 minute guy. If you give Green 8-12 mins at PF and Williams 12-16... then we still need to fill 46 minutes worth of a frontcourt

    I guess you can give Krstic 24-28 and Jermaine 18-22. but I would rather get a solid 32-34 minute a game Center w/ skills at BOTH ends of the court.

    Can't we trade Von Wafer and the 25th pick for the #1 pick, then trade the #1 pick for the #2 pick and another pick in the first round..... that way whoever gets the #1 pick still gets Kyrie Irving but then the Cs could take Derrick Williams at #2 and also get that other pick in the first round?

    Scratch Trey Thompkins! We need to move up and take Kemba Walker or move to another draft!

    Let Kemba and Bradley play the backcourt off the bench and throw them out there with some offensive + defensive rebounders and LIGHT IT UP!! (ala Dumars and Thomas)

    Dont blame Ainge for making couple indecision moves in past two to three years. Look at all other teams, there are so many GM's making alot of indecision moves in past 15 years too such as Golden State, Portland, New Jersey, Philadelphia, etc.  Problem for NBA is that these GM's along with the front office management staffs all have a harder time figuring out which college basketball players are a worthly pick at the same time who are not a worthy pick.  I just think it is just a luck.  

    I know I would like to see the Celtics pick Kemba cuz I think he is more a worthy pick.  But it is not going to happen cuz Walker is going to be pick before the Celtic do.  Best pick is to pick a players who have play two plus years college ball such as Thompson of Texas or Leonard of San Diego State, etc.   Enuff of these internatonal players.  They are more unproven NBA player than being a proven NBA player.

    Williams has a better shot than baby and has much better lift than baby I think he is a Boozer proto type not as good but that kind of player.

    Walker would have to suffer a life threatening injury to slip to 25 and since that is unlikely and the Cs have nothing to offer to move into the top 10, discussing Kemba Walker as a Celtic is absurd.
