We’ll be drowning in final mock drafts today, but there’s one standing out from the rest. Yahoo’s Marc Spears has Australian mystery man Dante Exum falling to the Celtics at 6:
The Celtics are probably surprised the Australian landed here, but his light body of work scared teams.
Most mockers have Exum going to Philly or Orlando. Cleveland worked everyone into a frenzy when it was leaked they tried to get Exum for a last minute workout.
Spears has Boston selecting UCLA’s Kyle Johnson, SF, at 17.
ESPN’s Chad Ford has Embiid and Dario Saric going to Boston in the 1st round.
If you are concerned about our lack of a pick in the 2nd round, fear not:
#Celtics trying to secure “at least” one pick in the second round. Philly and Milwaukee two potential partners, according to sources.
