For all of his strengths, Bagley (and Bamba) are probably the two least versatile players in the projected "top 5" of the draft.
Bagley is a pure power forward. On defense, he isn't physical enough, nor protect the rim well enough, to play Center. On offense, he can't shoot well enough to space the floor nor pass enough to initiate an offense.
I'm still not sure how to feel about him. I guess he can be compared to Andre Drummond who is just as bad on defense. Maybe in time, Bagley can extend his offense to where Lamarcus Aldridge is now?
For my Celtics perspective, this lack of versatility sounds like something Ainge would trade down from
I'm also not totally sold on Bagley but disagree with your assessment of him. He's incredibly versatile on defense and he's been a very physical player. He's still only 18 and he can definitely get stronger but his willingness to play physical and mix it up under the basket is unquestionable.
