Listening to Washburn the other day, Edwards was suppose to be that 3pt/Robinson type guy. But hasnt panned out. 32 percent fg and 31 percent in 3s

He wasnt even able to make the open 3 pt shots/unreliable. Couple that with poor defense

With this upcoming draft, expecting one of the Celts pick to be a 3 pt sharpshooter with size.  Nesmith, Saddiq Bey, Joe, Nwora, Bane, Tillie

Edwards could still come around but Bane is like a supersized Edwards.  The Celtics definitely need shooters to surround there shot creators with. Semi has so many open looks and just can't get them to fall.

Thereís some interesting information in this article.

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2909528-2020-nba-draft-buying-or-selling-latest-rumors

It says that RJ Hamptonís jump shot has improved a lot since heís last played.  I could see Ainge being interested in him.

It also says Jalen Smithís stock has been rising and that he could be a possibility for the Celtics at 14.

The info that teams may be trying to trade down is interesting. There are some good solid players in that 5-10 range. This could be a very active draft.

Hampton bickering at the refs and coachability questions are a smidge of a concern for me

Not sure how much of a big deal it is or just immaturity

Iím not sure about that.  Iíd look in another direction just because he and Langford are similar type of players who would be competing for backup minutes.  He does sound like the type of player Ainge likes. 

P Williams, Bey, and Nesmith are the guys that most interest me at 14.

There are rumors the Pistons might want out of the 7th pick and would trade down. At least, some pistons fans are advocating for it. If thatís available, there are a few players who are interesting - Vassel, Okongwu, Hayes. If any one of them pans out, they might fit in very nicely a couple years from now alongside prime-age Tatum and Brown.

I could see this happen. Especially for Okongwu or Wiseman

Otherwise with a flat cap and decent chance that guys like Semi, Wannamaker and one of Theis or Kanter out. Celts will ptobably need to rely on draft picks for depth next season

Frankly, I don't think Edwards shooting percentage this year are are a result of his inability to shoot.  Much more likely a result of a combination of jitters, adjusting to the league and a different role, inconsistent playing time, and being completely out of sync.  I have zero doubt the kid can shoot the lights out.

My bigger issue with him is whether he has a role in the NBA.  He was a volume shooter in college but does any team want him launching threes from all over the court and a primary option?  I don't think so.  This also ignores his size/defense issues.

So he would need to adjust to a different role to make it.  And that's what he's struggling with IMO.

That would be great, but also think it sounds too good to be true for the Celtics. Is 14+26+30 => 7?

Wonder if the Celtics try to trade up would they make Langford or Grant Williams available (Edwards certainly)?
Rationalism over beliefs

Okongwu would be my target if we could swing that kind of trade.

Grant is the only one Iíd hesitate to trade. If it was necessary for the deal and the Cs were convinced one of these guys is special, seems worth it. Thatís kind of a cop-out, butís itís a pretty routine story that teams learn a lot in the meetings and workouts.

If they think these guys are just role players, probably not.

I wouldn't trade trade Grant also

Okongwu is considered a super role type.  Not sold on his perimeter game. 

If Wiseman drops to 7, thats another story.   He has AD lite type potential.

Wiseman is the most intriguing player in this draft. He's just so big and athletic. He has amazing physical gifts and if he has the work ethic to go with it he could really be an excellent player.

He really could be anything. Exciting, but also terrifying potential. He could be literally anything from an Anthony Davis / Jermaine O'Neal type to a JaVale McGee
