Celtics draft PG Terry Rozier with 16th pick (Who?)

Celtics draft PG Terry Rozier with 16th pick (Who?)

I couldn’t be more disappointed. Not only were the Celtics unable to move up in the draft (Jahlil Okafor went 3rd to Philly, Justise Winslow went 10th to Miami), but they drafted a defensive point guard. Terry Rozier is 6-2, 190 sophmore out of Louisville. He can defend like hell, rebounds well, but struggles with [...]

Rumor: Celtics to prepare monster package for 3rd pick?

Rumor: Celtics to prepare monster package for 3rd pick?

Wow … @WindhorstESPN just said that if Okafor slips to 3, the Celtics are ready to send a monster package to Philly to get him. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) June 25, 2015 Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report says there’s growing momentum the Lakers are going to select D’Angelo Russell with the 2nd pick. It’s highly [...]

2015 NBA Draft Combine notes

2015 NBA Draft Combine notes

With the NBA draft 6 weeks away the Celtics will look to make a splash with a couple of first and second picks. This draft has been labeled a top heavy draft, but it’s filled with players who have skills that match the Celtics needs. When describing the combine last year Brad Stevens said, “The best [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the C’s don’t seem to like Cauley-Stein

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Kentucky’s Willie Cauley-Stein has been mentioned by some as a desirable fit in green, though the 7-footer projects into the top 10 and has enough offensive [...]

ESPN Insider Chad Ford has released his latest mock draft and he has the Celtics picking up a couple of big men with picks [...]

Asked if Rondo and Smart can coexist on the floor, Ainge added: “Absolutely. No question. And [Smart] and Avery. No question. He’s a very versatile player. He [...]

June 27, 2014 John - Red's Army (@RedsArmy_John) Draft, James Young, Marcus Smart, The Morning Dump 65

Marcus Smart is coming to Boston (we think)

Marcus Smart is coming to Boston (we think)

Marcus Smart is athletic, tough and physical. He is also an elite defender. Unfortunately, he’s not a natural shooter. Another drawback is his position. He’s a point guard. What does this mean for Rajon Rondo? Or.. does this mean Avery Bradley is out? Celtics need a pure shooter in that trio. We have plenty of [...]

The one mock draft that has Exum falling to Boston

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 [...]
