Default Who will the Celtics draft?

The Celtics will be selecting 5th in the upcoming draft. Although many hoped, we did not land one of the top 2 picks and thus lost out on the opportunity to draft Oden/Durant.

There is alot of speculation that has us drafting the guy from China. Would this be a bad move? Should we trade out? We all love drafts, don't we? Let's discuss this one.

Right now I am leaning towards Corey Brewer, with Al Thornton a close second.

5th pick for a bag of Dunkin' Munchkins. There is no one left in the organization with a clue.

Honestly, I change my opinion on this daily. At this moment, I think Brewer. I like Wright the most out of those guys though. I wouldn't mind trading the pick and getting Gasol or Jermaine O'Neal if we don't have to give up much besides that.

I've still got Corey Brewer to you guys at #5.

I would be happy if we got Brewer, I think he is the best we can possibly do at #5. He would add a lot of athleticism to an already athletic team, we would be running the floor like crazy with Brewer. I would love to see him and Gerald Green on the floor together.

Trading for Shawn Marion would be alright to I guess, but I would rather get a very young talent like Brewer (even though we are already loaded with young talent).

I'm not so hot on the Marion deal. I think we have other options that would be better for us overall, Brewer being one of them.

Well I say Brewer because he was the favorite two days ago for Minny, but yesterday all the sudden Minny guarantees Hawes at #7. So something must've come up, and my guess was that Brewer was going #5, either that or he's going #6.

i think brewer or jeff green would be the best options... both are good teammates and can play right away

and as much as i like him... it would give us the opportunity to pick up a veteran big man, possibly trading gerald green

Jeff Green is the other choice because he plays with Doc Rivers son at Georgetown, and Doc obviously knows the kind of guy he is and all that. They can get the most in depth info on him. At this point, they just need to decide if whatever that is is good enough to take him over whoever else. I think if Al Horford is that, then there may be a really good chance we take him. I think it will definitely be one of these four:

1. Al Horford
2. Corey Brewer
3. Jeff Green
4. Al Thornton

So the odds are in favor of the Celtics taking a guy named Al. Haha...

why does everyone want brewer???? we're already set at the 2 and 3 the last thing we need is to draft another swingman and absolutely have those positions backloaded. i'd draft noah at five or move down a few spots and take noah. we don't need brewer. what we should do is make a deal with the hawks, switch #5 with #9 (they want horford and conley) throw them gerald green and ratliff and re acquire joe johnson. then we could draft hawes or noah with the ninth pick and be set.

pg--rondo/west
sg--johnson/allen
sf--pierce/szczerbiak
pf--jefferson/gomes
c--noah or hawes/perkins

The Hawks pick at 11, the Bulls pick at 9...a trade down is a nice option but I really don't see any teams biting on something. Odds are you guys go for Noah, Green, or Brewer IMO because Ainge needs somebody that can step in and play right away, he can't afford to take a project like Yi or Wright (one of those two should be available at 5).

Are the Celtics in great need for a point guard?

If so would you not want to take Mike Conley Jr.?

Rajon Rondo has come a long way in just one year. PG shouldn't be an issue.

I am hating these Kevin Garnett rumors. I mean, I don't have any beef with Garnett coming to Boston, but not if it costs us Al Jefferson. I guess I just see him as a 20/10 guy moving forward, and think we should be building around him instead of getting rid of him. I would hate to see another Chauncey Billups/Joe Johnson situation.

That said, it is Kevin Garnett. If I knew we'd have him for another... six years, and have him at his best, then maybe I go for it. But he can opt out of his contract at the end of the year, and if this is a one and done, NO WAY...

Kevin Garnett doesn't have 6 good years left. Al does, and more. I think their production will be very similar next year. Yeah, I hate the talk as well. I don't want to see Al and Gerald go. Not after all the work we put into them. I know that's kinda the Danny Ainge plan....but it's not worth it. What are we with Garnett? Nothing more than a second round knockout with two aging superstars.
And no dhroy, we're not in need of a point guard. Rondo looked really, really good last year at times. He has to be more consistent, but he averaged 13/5 during the last month of the season.

I am starting to love the idea of Brewer or Horford being in Green. I could see us grabbing Jeff Green as well, those are the guys I would like to see us take.

I'm not all that sold on Jeff Green. Seems like a classic example of a guy that will just end up being solid.

I don't know, I would rather have Horford/Brewer/Wright, but I would take Green in a heartbeat over Noah/Jianlian. Green is just tempting to me because he has that complete package thing going for him.

I would take him over Noah(I would take one of the Olsen twins over Noah) but not Yi. Yi may be raw, but I think Jeff Green is a finished product. Not much upside left.

Turnover of the roster is what has killed this team for the last 2 decades. A little stability would go a long way. Trading the young talent as it is about to blossom is rediculous. How is it that you are hearing rumors of aquiring a guy (JOhnson) you let walk away for trash a few years back ? If you are making a move with this team it should be to draft player who does what no one on your team can do right now . Identify what "that " is and "who" fills that need. It may not be the #5 prospect, but if it makes your team better do it.

Or, be a seller and dump Pierce, go completely young and build a team that will be a title contender in 3-4 years. You have waited this long. Just stop fooling yourselves into thinking that there is any veteran deal that you can make that fixes this team.

Yeah, I don't like this trade either. But it looks like it's a done deal :(
EDIT:We aren't doing it! Al's staying in Boston.
