Probably so.

Ainge isn't one to show his cards.

Which is unfortunate, because I'd be thrilled if we drafted Grayson.
During an ESPN interview Friday at the 2014 NBA Draft combine, Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said he likes Marcus Smart's "fire" and believes the former Oklahoma State guard will have a nice NBA career.

Ainge did not sound concerned by Smart's confrontation with a fan earlier this season, saying: "I dont know all the details of that, haven't researched that yet, but we will look into that. But (it won't affect his draft stock) much. I think hes a great kid, a great player and I think hell have a bright future."

Well then that settles it, we're drafting Grayson Allen.

Yay!

He is a fierce competitor but more likely we buy a second round pick to get him.  A lot of mocks don't even have him as a first round guy but early second.

So drafts have him going higher

I could see him being the next Kuzma-esqe steal of the draft. Projected 2nd round pick who has a stellar combine and ends up being picked up in the end on the 1st. Although there won't be room on the C's for him to get starter minutes, he could have an impact off the bench. After watching some highlights I'd be fine with this. I love his 3-point shot.

The Ringer's updated mock draft (6/13) has Allen going to the C's. More surprising is DiVincenzo going at #29 to Brooklyn.

I'd love to hear Wes Welker's scouting report on this guy.

Ainge must be trippin'.

But with both Grayson and Marcus Smart we'd be a step ahead in the feisty department.

These two would get a kick out of needling our opponents.

I'm out on Allen.  IMO a project to even stick on an NBA roster.

Allen would be a good pick

Provide shooting off the bench

And would annoy the hell out of other teams. Imagine him and smart together

I think he'd be a good pick. Would fit right in with the other irrational confidence guys on the team. Plus, he's a good 3 pt shooter so we could always use those.
