Katz: “I’ll be surprised if Boston keeps (both picks)”

The speculation is running rampant ahead the June 28 draft.  You know by now the Celtics hold picks 21 and 22, and we can add ESPN’s Andy Katz to the growing list of voices that don’t expect the Celtics to make those picks.

I’ll be surprised if Boston keeps both 21 and 22, but the Celtics need to make sure there is a palatable trade. This is a huge summer for Boston’s two 2011 draft picks, Purdue’s E’Twaun Moore and JaJuan Johnson, who didn’t get a chance to play much as rookies.

That link also includes some stuff about the guys who worked out for Boston today:  Vanderbilt’s John Jenkins, Kentucky’s Doron Lamb and Florida’s Erving Walker.  Lamb and Jenkins are at best late first rounders but more likely second round guys.  Walker might not be drafted at all. 

I’m not sure exactly what Danny is thinking, but I do know he gets an itch right around this time of year.  He’s got a couple of draft picks and a couple of trade assets on the team.  He could get ambitious and just blow this team to high-heaven with a series of sweeping moves.  He could just as easily move up a few different spots or just into a different draft. 

Good luck guessing what Danny’s got cooking right now.  I’m not sure Danny has a definite path he’d like to take yet.

    Hopefully if he blows it up its worthwhile. Last couple of years have been mediocore contributions in the long run.

    Blow it up. All we need to accomplish this summer is one really good player to go with Rondo.

  • kricky

    If KG doesn’t want to come back you have to blow it up. Rondo is the only untouchable. And maybe even (gulp) move Pierce if you can get a tangible asset for him. I know that’s sacrilege, but it’d be better to tank now for a year or two than swim in the waters of mediocrity.

      thinking about trading pierce is beyond idiotic and goes against everything the c’s are about. fyi celt’s have too much pride to tank.

    They SHOULD keep both picks. They need a center and a SF for the future.

    Melo and Miller = M&M on this draft.
