The Kendrick Perkins trade is now complete. The Clippers' first round pick, sent to Boston via Oklahoma City in the Perk trade, will be 22nd in the upcoming draft after the tiebreakers were determined earlier today.
The Celtics, by virtue of their 39-27 record, will pick 21st, giving them consecutive picks in what's supposed to be a deep draft. You can find the full draft order now up on NBA.com (with, of course, the lottery teams still to be sorted out)
The Celtics also pick 51st (2nd round pick). And with Danny's draft history, I'd expect that pick to make a more immediate impact than the first two.
All kidding aside, these are two potential assets for the Celtics that can be used to draft potential contributors, or package in a deal. I'm actually betting on the latter for at least one of the picks. That's not based on anything in particular… just a hunch based on Danny's history.
I'll leave the "who we might pick" speculation for the comments section. Have fun.
