I just saw Perk on TV picking Pritchard as a draft sleeper.

First of all, trade Hayward to ATL for #6.

#6   Josh Green             
#14 Udoka Azubuike
#26 Ashton Hagans
#30 Xavier Tillman
#47 Sam Merrill

-Josh Green has some eerie offensive statistical similarities to Tatum when Tatum was drafted.  He is also a facilitator in the mold of Bird, with quick touch passes and nifty playmaking. Celtics have worked him out and did an additional second interview via Zoom. IMO, he's their top target, no matter what the mocks say.

-I see Udoka Azubuike going higher than what is expected. IMO, Onyeka Okongwu leaks are a smokescreen for the Celtics real target. Doke is one of the few big men who could physically dominate Adebayo.

Celtics worked him out in previous years before he decided to return to Kansas, so he has been on their radar for a long time. After his breakout Senior year as one of the best defenders (86.1 defensive rating) and most efficient scorers in college basketball history (leads NCAA history in FG percentage, with Tacko Fall second), and a 31 PER, higher than Anthony Davis, he is a player the Celtics cannot not take.

Also there's this:

2020 big men. Udoka Azubuike officially broke bSPARQ. He's the most athletic player at any position in the history of our database, which includes well over 1,000 players.


-Ashton Hagans is the Wildcat point guard most statistically similar to Rondo in U of Kentucky history. Ainge got Rondo with the 21st pick in 2009, so 26 for Hagans seems reasonable. He is the ball-stealing defender, play-maker, and gifted finisher that the Celtics were seeking in Jrue Holiday (although Holiday has a better 3pt shot; this is what Hagans has been working on all year).

-Then, we've been linked to Xaxier Tilman and his Kawaii-sized hands for a while at #30.

-Finally, Sam Merrill is an unathletic white guy who can shoot it like KD. A steal at #47.

As an Aussie, I'd love to see Josh in green, but #6 is a crazy reach. My prediction is he is still there at 26 (just).

I don't hate all the Azubuike love by the way. Dude is a hard worker.

If we stay pat, I'd like to see

#14 Tyrell
#26 Vernon C
#30 Josh Green
#47 Azubuike

Obviously Vernon will more likely be gone (and Green and even Azubuike), but this would be a dream draft..

Do we make a reset of our predictions in light of Hayward's situation? I believe all our predictions change once he moves out of Boston.

Most absurd overrating of Green I've ever seen. Reminiscent of Tatum and Bird??? He's an athletic 3&D guy..

So, collectively, we all stink at predicting Dannyís choices.

Silas and Rikibellevie ties with 5 points.  Silas wins the tiebreaker by default, since Rikibellevie didnít answer the tiebreaker question.

Well done, guys.  Iíll be awarding the prizes in the morning, with PhoSita, liam, libermaniac and celticinorlando all earning partial credit. Iím
