26. Robert Woodward
30. Immanuel Quickley
34. Killian Tillie
36. Jay Scrubb (draft and stash - Yabusele route)
*14, 47 traded to 76ers for 21, 34, 36
* 21st pick traded to OKC for 2021 1st (Heat) and 2021 2nd round pick
I'm really liking what I'm seeing out of Robert Woodward. He is a 6'7 hybrid chiseled forward, explosive and has a 7'1-7'2 wingspan. His game is pretty polished and has a nice 3 point jump shot (42 percent last season). Versatile defender (that can also guard smaller centers) with a strong motor. Prototypical 3 and D prospect but additional ability to drive to the basket for explosive finishes with either hand
Quickley and Tillie are two more 3 pt shooting additions. Quickley in the mold of KCP/terror around screens 3 pt shooter. Good defender. 6'3 with rondo like 6'10 wingspan. Tillie a potential nightmare stretch 4/5 matchup. This way for example, Bam would have to come out to the perimeter leaving the interior open.
Tyrell Terry is a very good shooter. But watching more games/highlight, his size/defense is a little concerning. If we remember how Kemba was picked on in the playoffs (same with Vanvleet) as these smaller guards do have their limitations..... Celts don't need anymore "holes" in this regard
Quickley would fit in very nicely because 1- he is not a pure pg
. He has a ridiculous 6'10 wingspan. Strong 1 on 1 defender. And is a very good shooter, especially running around screens like a madman and launching 3s in one quick motion. Something the Celtics lacked in the playoffs but Heat had with Herro/Robinson.
Overall these additions would mean not weakening Celtics defensive system. Adding better 3 point shooting depth at different positions. Q
