I'll be happy with Tyrell.

I love Paul Reed's game: I'd be happy to take him at 26.

Me too.

I'd love to add Paul "Jerami Grant" Reed to the C's with a late first....

interesting comparison. Not bad

but Reed needs to add at least 15-20 pounds of mass, to be able to bang/able to deal with NBA frontcourt physicality

I think Danny has Jajuan Johnson reservations.  .... can this frontcourt player add the necessary mass?

The Celts should consider Achiuwa at 14 if unable to trade down for Okongwu (for front court depth) 

I still like Tillman, but the more you watch his game.... we already have Grant Williams.  Tillman is a few inches taller, but is not very quick/explosive. Lacks verticality unless has space to jump.

I've heard that Reed is a knucklehead. Anybody know anything about that?

I hadn't heard that, but given the fact that a player of his abilities and athleticism are in high demand right now, the fact that most NBA draft gurus who are plugged into NBA front offices have him pegged as a late 1st/early 2nd prospect, it seems like there is something that is holding him back from rising up draft boards.

this is something I found online about paul reed weaknesses:

Weaknesses
While Reedís skill set is intriguing at his size, it did cause problems in the way of turnovers. As a focal point of DePaulís offense this season, Reed had a tendency to get overzealous with putting the ball on the floor.

At his size and with his athletic ability, he could be a dynamic roller at the NBA level. He didnít run a ton of pick-and-roll at DePaul and his screen setting leaves a lot to be desired.

The height and length are tantalizing, but heíll need to get stronger to finish at the rim and guard NBA bigs. The good news is he looks like he has the frame to hold more muscle.

While positionless basketball is the way the NBA is trending, I still worry a bit about where Reed fits. Will he get strong enough to hang on the block? Is he agile enough to operate on the perimeter?

I mean we made it far with guys like Olynyk, Theis, etc. There's no way this kid could be any worse.

Me either. I've not been as high on him. He does have a big wingspan. He's a very productive player. He also plays really hard, which is good.

added Quickley, he is a guard who I think have the potential to be the steal of the second round. I have increasingly wondered what really separates him from Tyrell Terry. Both have future 3pt contest champ potential.

He is probably my biggest "why aren't they ranked higher guy". He checks a lot of the boxes that projects well for prospects. Played for team USA, was a 90 on the ESPN top 100 rating, has +5 length, and played at UK.

Yeah, I'm getting nervous with all the Tyrell Terry going to Celtics with 14th pick. His size really concerns me.

From what I've seen I expect Terry to measure  6'3 in shoes and 174lbs. Ive seen his wingspan estimated to be around 6'4-6'5.

for comparison Quickley was 6'3 in shoes 185lbs with a 6'7.25" wingspan at the UK combine his freshman year. Giving him identical meausrmnte to Avery Bradley but 5 lbs heavier.

Wondering where they are going to put any draftee beyond the 14th.

I realize the draft may not yield a 6'9" front court presence and a 7' ummm...frontcourt presence, but, the last time I checked that is pretty much the only players they need beyond guys that won't get more than a few minutes in a playoff game.
