One player that is growing on me is Grant Riller from Charleston College. Seems like a Brogdon-type player.

My mock pick as of today

14.  Whichever player is available: SF/PF Patrick Williams or Jaden McDaniels.   Patrick Williams is better defensively and McDaniels better offensively.  Both have the physical tools and high ceiling

26. PG Devon Dotson. Backup for Kemba.  Strong two way game.  3 point jump shot needs a little work but shoots 80 percent from FT line

30. SG/SF Jay Scrubb. 6'6 guard/sf with tremendous potential.  Played in Div 2 last season due to academic ineligibility.

46. C Nick Richards.  6'11 center with 7'3 wingspan.  Older rookie but long, athletic and good strength. Good mid range and FT shooter.   Backup for Timelord next season

2020-2021 Celtics lineup

C - Theis/Kanter/Timelord/Richards
PF- Tatum/McDaniel or Patrick Williams/Grant Williams
SF- Hayward/Langford/Scrubb
SG- Brown/Smart/Scrubb
PG- Walker/Dotson/Edwards

Out - Waters, Wannamaker, Ojeleye, Green, Fall

Whomever the c's pick all I ask for is positional size. No more 6'0 pgs or 6'5 power forwards.

Standings as of 8/10/20 -  picking up where I left off

Memphis pick #16—  (last playoff spot in the West) (protected top 6 )
                    Games Behind    Current Wins   Games Left   Last 10
Phoenix                 1.5                    31                    3               7-3
San Antonio             1                     31                    2               6-4
Orlando                   1                     32                    2               5-5
Portland                 0.5                    33                   2                6-4
Memphis               ---                    33                    2               3-7
Brooklyn                 +1.5                 34                    2               7-3

—>  Memphis falling like a stone.  Prior to the bubble, it was unlikely they’d be caught for that last playoff spot without a minor miracle.  Enter: Covid-19.  Now it’s likely very likely they not only lose that last playoff spot to get into the lottery but could fall as many as 4 spots into the lottery.   They’re unlikely to catch Brooklyn so it’s looking like in the event they hang on to that last spot, it’s not going to get worse than it already is.  if things all the teams below them catch up and pass them, Orlando climbs them but grabbing the last spot in the East and they fall behind Portland, SA and Phx to hopefully push them as high as 12.  Stick that NO hasn’t surged as well in the bubble to add yet another team that could pass them.
—> end prediction is we end up with #13 before the lottery.


Boston Pick #27 (tied with Clips)
                   Games Behind    Current Wins     Games Left    Last 10
Denver                  0.5                     46                      3               5-5
Boston                  ---                     47                      2               6-4
LA Clippers             —                      47                      2               5-5

-->C's are doing decently in the bubble and are now jockeying with Denver and Clips for HCA (such as it is in the bubble) should they meet in the finals but also with this pick.  Denver could tie them since they seem to be trying and Clips could fall below the C’s since they don’t seem to be trying. 
—> end prediction is we end up with #27 since Brad is committing to getting the team into playoff conditioning and mentality


Bucks Pick #30   -- (protected  top 7) 
                        Games Behind    Current Wins     Games Left    Last 10
Milwaukee                  —                      55                    3                 3-7

-->  it’s official, while they’re going in the pooper in the bubble, they’ve clinched the best record for HCA and the worst first round pick for us.   

Second Rounders:
Boston 57 (protected 31-53)  — Tie with Clips — C’s now losing the pick and cannot drop in the standings to the point where they keep it

Brooklyn 49 (least favorable of Brooklyn/Knicks — currently Brooklyn)  —>  pretty much a lock for this slot

Another user posted that regardless of how much Memphis drops, the best the Celts can get is the 14th pick... something about seeding round vs regular season (where it ended up)

I would love to see Memphis drop to the point the Celts can get the 12th or a little higher with lotto luck

Right now their inexperience is showing.  And teams like Blazers and Suns playing their best basketball.   At the end of the day,  I think Blazers and Suns play the one game playoff for the 8th spot

that may be true - need to see that to understand how Memphis would stay at the 14th slot should Phx, Sa and Portland all pass them in the standings such that Memphis isn't even in the play-in game.

Yes even if everybody (PHO, POR, SAS) passes MEM they can't fall faster than 14th because lottery seeding is determined by record on March 11, a date when MEM would have had the bets record of all the lottery teams.

Even if they have 6'9 wingspan  and 7'3 wingspan?  ;D

I mean dont get me wrong, if you're gonna be short its better to have a large wingspan. But how about we get a player with both?

Right now their inexperience is showing.  And teams like Blazers and Suns playing their best basketball.   At the end of the day,  I think Blazers and Suns play the one game playoff for the 8th spot
that may be true - need to see that to understand how Memphis would stay at the 14th slot should Phx, Sa and Portland all pass them in the standings such that Memphis isn't even in the play-in game.

Yes even if everybody (PHO, POR, SAS) passes MEM they can't fall faster than 14th because lottery seeding is determined by record on March 11, a date when MEM would have had the bets record of all the lottery teams.
dang, how'd I miss that crappy nugget of info?   that sucks for us.  taking the guesswork out of how far the pick could fall is a courtesy the league didn't have to provide

Standings as of 8/10/20 -  picking up where I left off

Memphis pick #16—  (last playoff spot in the West) (protected top 6 )
                    Games Behind    Current Wins   Games Left   Last 10
Phoenix                 1.5                    31                    3               7-3
San Antonio             1                     31                    2               6-4
Orlando                   1                     32                    2               5-5
Portland                 0.5                    33                   2                6-4
Memphis               ---                    33                    2               3-7
Brooklyn                 +1.5                 34                    2               7-3

—>  Memphis falling like a stone.  Prior to the bubble, it was unlikely they’d be caught for that last playoff spot without a minor miracle.  Enter: Covid-19.  Now it’s likely very likely they not only lose that last playoff spot to get into the lottery but could fall as many as 4 spots into the lottery.   They’re unlikely to catch Brooklyn so it’s looking like in the event they hang on to that last spot, it’s not going to get worse than it already is.  if things all the teams below them catch up and pass them, Orlando climbs them but grabbing the last spot in the East and they fall behind Portland, SA and Phx to hopefully push them as high as 12.  Stick that NO hasn’t surged as well in the bubble to add yet another team that could pass them.
—> end prediction is we end up with #13 before the lottery.


Boston Pick #27 (tied with Clips)
                   Games Behind    Current Wins     Games Left    Last 10
Denver                  0.5                     46                      3               5-5
Boston                  ---                     47                      2               6-4
LA Clippers             —                      47                      2               5-5

-->C's are doing decently in the bubble and are now jockeying with Denver and Clips for HCA (such as it is in the bubble) should they meet in the finals but also with this pick.  Denver could tie them since they seem to be trying and Clips could fall below the C’s since they don’t seem to be trying. 
—> end prediction is we end up with #27 since Brad is committing to getting the team into playoff conditioning and mentality


Bucks Pick #30   -- (protected  top 7) 
                        Games Behind    Current Wins     Games Left    Last 10
Milwaukee                  —                      55                    3                 3-7

-->  it’s official, while they’re going in the pooper in the bubble, they’ve clinched the best record for HCA and the worst first round pick for us.   

Second Rounders:
Boston 57 (protected 31-53)  — Tie with Clips — C’s now losing the pick and cannot drop in the standings to the point where they keep it

Brooklyn 49 (least favorable of Brooklyn/Knicks — currently Brooklyn)  —>  pretty much a lock for this slot

Per masslive, it aligns with what you stated.

If Memphis falls to 12 or 13, do their odds improve?

No. The Grizzlies will be a lottery team if they miss the postseason, but they can’t rise higher than the No. 14 pick (whoops) even if they are surpassed by the Suns and Blazers.
