According to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics have traded the 25th pick (Marshon Brooks) to New Jersey.
The Celtics have swapped picks with New Jersey, and they'll get a future 2nd rounder. The Nets will make the 27th pick for the Celtics.
The New Jersey Nets have selected JaJuan Johnson for the Celtics. Here's his NBADraft.net bio:
Strengths: A long, tall forward with good scoring instincts … Is a legit 6'10" in shoes with a long 7'2" wingspan … Has very impressive leaping ability with unusual explosiveness for a big man … Tied for having the highest maximum jump reach in the 2011 NBA Draft Combine, getting as high as 12'1.5" … Frequent target for ally-oops and lob passes … Very agile and mobile … Has the speed to play the small forward position at the next level … Really improved his scoring ability every year he was at school … Has a smooth and refined turnaround jumper, which is very difficult to defend due to his length … Has shooting range out to around 18 feet from the basket … Has become a real threat in the post … Nice-looking hook shot from the left side of the rim, with a soft touch and a high release point … A factor on the offensive glass, gets a lot of tip-ins and put-backs … Great free throw shooter (80.9%) that gets to the stripe a lot (209 attempts in 2010-2011) … Moves his feet well on defense … Big-time shot blocker, averaging 2.3 per game … Had a successful 4-year career at Purdue …
Weaknesses: Lacks bulk … Doesn't appear to have the frame that can support much more weight in the future … Gets pushed around when trying to defend players in the post … Offensively he prefers to play in the post, but there are questions about whether this will translate to the next level where just about every power forward will be bigger than he is … Will have trouble establishing and maintaining good position down low … Somewhat of a tweener … Doesn't have the strength of a power forward, but doesn't have the perimeter skills of a small forward … Poor ball-handling ability … Cannot create offense for himself on the perimeter … He isn't the rebounder that someone with his size and athleticism could be …
Hey, at least its a big guy. He won't play here though… at least not this year. He'll get plenty of time in Maine.
