In ESPN Insider’s latest Tank Rank, we hear about the Celtics interest in Aaron Gordon:
The Celtics like Parker, Wiggins and Embiid a lot. But they are also fans of Arizona’s Aaron Gordon, who is one of the best athletes in the draft. He’s not as polished offensively, but he’s one of those players who does a little bit of everything and impacts the game on both ends of the floor.
I don’t know anything about the 6-8, 210 lb Gordon, so let’s go to his scouting report:
- Freakishly athletic forward
- Explosive leaper
- Terrific motor
- Excellent defender
- Surprisingly good ball handler
- A tweener
- Ugly jump shot
Ugly jump shot?
I want a scorer. A natural, smooth scorer.
