He was once a top 5 pick but red flags on his health made him slide down the board to the Celtics.

I'm a big fan of this pick. Yes, the back is an issue but if watched carefully he could be a huge talent.

Sullinger is slightly undersized as an NBA post player but should be able to use his strength and length to have success at the next level.
