In response to Archer1's comment:
No chance Bennett goes 1...
No chance Orlando passes on Noel...
I pray the Celtics don't draft Bebe with those players still on the board (Giannis, Plumlee, Dieng, Larkin, Hardaway etc)
yeah I know #1 was a shocker...but I have been reading a lot of draft stuff saying that some GM's feel that Bennet is the only star potential in this draft...if so with SF being the top need at Cleveland it is a match!
Bennett and Thompson at Forward work
Waiters and Irving at Guard
they would still need to adress the center position with Oft-injured Varajeo and Zeller (Dieng?)
but you can make the argument that IF Clevelands GM sees him as a possible future NBA star player, he IS the pick over Noel, Len( INjuries will take time) SG's, PG's ( high draft picks already on roster at those positions).
there is a good chance that Bebe won't even still be on the board at the Celtics pick.........I thnk he has risen that much in the last two weeks.
I would stay away from the Greek kid that has only played at basically USA prep school level, myself. but the others you pick would all be equally good choices with Plumlee being the most ready to play now.
