When did the Mo Wagner workout happen? Was there any news about how it went?
I like Mo as well, but I can't find anything about a workout with the Celtics...
Ooh, they worked out Tryggvi?? Heís one of my top targets for a draft and stash with a late 2nd, should we buy one.
I really donít think Mo can handle the NBA. His defense is flat-out unplayable at the NBA level right now. He doesnít have enough lateral mobility to handle perimeter switches well, and his post technique is quite poor also. He canít help but commit reach in fouls.
If we traded out of the first, say with Philly for multiple of their seconds, Iíd be okay with it, as his offensive talent is worth a gamble at some point. Just not in the 1st round. That pick needs to at least be able to fit into the end of the rotation as a rookie.
2nd round targets Tryggvi ( he's huge! 7'1" 260lbs) and Bonga!
I like Bonga, but I don't like Tryggvi. He doesn't seem to have the reach to be a solid rim protector or having skills to make up for that.
The youtube-highlights from Bonga are very interesting. Especially his passing ability would make him an instant upgrade over Nader I would assume (I know he'll probably be stashed).
I would be pleased with the 27th pick to take Mitchell Robinson or Isaac Bonga. I doubt DiVincenzo will be available at that point.
Also I was bored, so I tried to look for correlation between physical profiles from previous NBA combines and relative draft success. According to my little analysis there's a very good chance that Bates Diop and Okogie will outperform their draft position. However I don't really see a role on this Celtics' team for either player.
On a side note, if the Lakers don't pick up his team option and we don't get a big man in the draft, we should try to sign Thomas Bryant. My model suggests he's a capable NBA player.
