Celtics: NBA Draft prospects
Boston.com
Height: 6 feet 9 inches Weight: 245 lbs School: Florida Class: Junior Horford may be the most NBA-ready of the big men in the draft. He's got an Elton-Brand style game, with the ability to score inside or take his man off the dribble from the elbow. He defends with his bulk, not his height. Horford would give the Celtics a strong one-two punch in the paint, provided Kendrick Perkins can step up and be the defensive center everyone hopes he can be.
