We can table draft pick discussions until after the playoffs, but Danny Ainge still has a long term job to do. So it shouldn't surprise anyone that he's already starting workouts with potential draft picks.
The 6-foot-7, 235-pound Green already has a workout scheduled with Boston, one of about a dozen teams that have expressed an interest in the versatile player. ''I hear I could go anywhere from 20 to 30,'' he said. ''But you never know, so I'm going to control what I can control and that's to be ready for any and every opportunity I get to show what I can do.'' Green, the lone senior on The Associated Press' All-America team last season, might be overlooked by teams early in the first round because some scouts don't think he's big enough to play power forward or agile enough to be a small forward.
I'd obviously like a little more size on the team, but I can see why Danny keeps taking chances on these undersized power forwards. They don't have a natural position so they get undervalued, which makes them a potential value at the end of the first round.
But we've got time for that discussion after the season.
