When you look at the draft or trades, the bottom line question is always, "Did we get better?" All last year the consensus was that the Celtics needed a defensive minded center (aka rim protector) and a dynamic scorer who could score within the system but also create his own shot and demand double teams when he had to. Do these draft picks address those needs? I don't think so. Does this mean the draft was a bust? If no other moves are made, then yes.
This draft did not address the two biggest needs the Celtics have. This draft is about collecting assets, not building a roster. It's about replacing Bradley (who they probably won't resign) and improving their comfort zone in using Rondo in a trade to get players they really need. I don't know what - if any - deals are out there, but without one, this team is lottery bound again. Sigh.
