Let's assume that the season ends today. The celtics have the 4th worst record in the league. And let's also assume that when the lottery is over, we are still placed to pick 4th. On draft night, the three teams above us each select one member of the NCAA big 3 (jabari parker, andrew wiggins, and joel embiid). This leaves the celtics with a lot of undersized power forwards to pick from, but it also leaves us with a chance to pick Dante Exum, Australian Mysteryman. Now, if we are the celtics, we should pick Exum considering we always take the best player available and also because the talent level drops off after 4th pick.
After we pick exum, do we....brace yourself....trade Rondo, our Captain, leaving us with a new franchise face of exum, along with a supporting cast of Sully and whoever we get for rondo.
Or, do we keep rondo, and ride a backcourt of Rondo and Exum, a 2 pg lineup similar to the one in Phoenix (dragic and Bledsoe)?
Which scenario do you prefer, and why? Leave your ideas in the comments section below!
