Boston Celtics select Terry Rozier

Wow, I didn't see that.

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The Celtics were unable to trade up into the lottery.  At the 16th pick, they have selected Terry Rozier.

I'm shocked.

Rozier is another point guard that isn't a great shooter.  Now we wait and see what this means for Marcus Smart.

The Celtics passed on guys like Bobby Portis, RJ Hunter, and Kevon Looney.

My initial reaction is that I hate this pick.  Rozier most likely would have been available lower in the draft - maybe even at the 28th pick.  I don't understand why we have to double down on yet another point guard.

Maybe this means more moves are afoot. Maybe this means the Celtics aren't as high on Smart as they would like us to believe.

I don't really know what to think at this point.  I'm disappointed that we didn't trade up and I'm not impressed with the pick.

Feel free to prove me wrong Terry Rozier.  I'm just not seeing it right now.
