Where will the Celtics stand if we have to stand relatively pat with our draft picks and add only Asik for our TPE?
Say we draft Marcus Smart with our #6 and James Young at #17 (arbitrary, but we are really thin in the backcourt). Avery Bradley leaves in free agency as is the most likely scenario at the moment.
Our depth chart:
Rondo Smart Pressey
Green Johnson Wallace
Sullinger Bass Olynyk
Asik Faveriani Anthony
First off, this team sucks. And the only way this is tolerable is if we continue to develop our young talent and miss the playoffs which is really hard to do in the East. Our draft picks in 2015 could realistically be exactly the same as this year #6 and #17. We would have enough cap space to extend Rondo and pursue a max free agent (or two).
Because as it stands we are not even close to being contenders. I know everyone is hoping for fireworks, but 2015 could be 2014 part deux.
