At 46 if still available I wouldn't mind if the Celts took Mamadi Diakite I’d be somewhat surprised if we took a big at that spot (who isn’t a draft & stash) who then went on to make the actual roster. We already have Williams x 2, Theis, Kanter, Ojeleye and sadly Poirier, and I feel like if we keep our first rounders we’ll likely take a big (hopefully my guy Paul Reed).
Add some depth to the 4 and 5 position
That pick probably goes to a player who is willing to sign a 2-way deal. Tremont was picked #51 last year as did Bol Bol #44, Weatherspoon #49, Brantley #50, Shayok #54, Wright-Forman #53, Guy #55 and Bone #57.
This 2nd round will be interesting because it could be pretty role player deep.
After pick 40
ESPN has players mocked who I have seen talked about as first round and even near lottery picks on other sites
Guards: Flynn, Riller, Mays, Quickley,
Wings/Swing: Bane, Hughes, Stanley,
Bigs: Tillman, Reed, Tillie,
I wouldn't be shocked if the Cs ended up with any combination of those players in the 1st round let along at #46. The issue might be getting them to agree to a 2-way deal. Tillman, Flynn, Riller, Bane, Tillie and Hughes may not have high ceilings they are 6 players who I could see actually contributing off the back of the bench next season.
In terms of fit as a 2-way I really like Immanuel Quickley, he came into Kentucky as a PG but was taken off the ball and really played well as an undersized wing. He is an elite shooter who needs to just round out his game. On a 2-way deal he can be put back at PG in Maine to see if that's a role he may eventually be able to fill. If not a PG he still has enough size (about same size/length as AB) to get by as a bench shooting specialist
