Options with the 17th overall pick.

As well as their top draft selection (which will be determined post-lottery) the Celtics own the 17th overall pick, via Brooklyn. Being a deep draft, Boston could get another quality player here as well as their Top-10 pick.

Options:

T.J. Warren, N.C State.

Warren was one of the best scorers in the entire NCAA this year, and getting him at 17 would be a steal. He played mostly power forward in college, but his body and frame project better as an NBA small forward. Long arms allow him to shoot over NBA forwards, and he would be an immediate contributor off the bench behind Jeff Green.

Kyle Anderson, UCLA

Anderson is one of the most unique players in this year's draft. He's the definition of a point forward, with ability to pass like a point guard, but can also rebound with the best of them. A gifted scorer from behind the arc, Anderson is a dynamic player that would be vital on a rebuilding squad.

Jusuf Nurkic, International

Nurkic is 6'11, and while he is a raw talent, it's hard to pass up on his size. Initially, he reminds me of Minnesota's Nikola Pekovic with his size, strength, and post skills. He might be one of those "draft and stash" players, but it might just be worth it.

What are your thoughts for the 17th pick?
