If he lasts to 14, I'd be shocked if they didn't pick him. It seems likely that Boston would need to trade up to get him. This could be leaked by Boston to hope that he slips to them. If they trade up to get him I'd expect that they aren't concerned with his lack of athleticism.

Danny is a good drafter when he has high picks. When he has middle round picks like last year and this year his track record is terrible.

I don't know if it has been consistently terrible.  Big Al Jefferson was chosen at 15, the same year Delonte and Tony Allen were chosen.  Avery Bradley was chosen at 19.  Rondo was chosen by Phoenix for the Cs in the 20s.

Bradley was made of glass.
Tony was ok. Al also.

Pruitt, Giddens, Yabu, zizic, sullinger, fab melo, hunter, Lucas nogueria, James young, Langford, brooks

Somebody is looking at a list of players the Cs technically drafted, but not who they were traded for on draft night.

And I'd say only Young and Yabu were busts. You can't fault any gm for late 20s picks not working out. Lol @ AB being made of glass and Allen only being 'okay'. And there should be MUCH more praise for the Al and Rondo picks. Al brought us KG and Rondo is a possible HOF guy drafted at 21.

Lol, imagine describing Bradley and only mentioning his injuries, and not his elite D and developed two-way game.

Also, in what world is arguably the best guard defender of the generation + a 15/10 big man only okay?? Nonsense.

Almost as nonsensical as writing off Langford already
