NBA Mock Draft: CelticsBlog community mock draft: Pick 12

Will a young team get younger?

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

With the 11th pick in the CelticsBlog community mock draft, the Indiana Pacers select... Myles Turner.

Either the CelticsBlog voters don't buy the rumors of the Pacers infatuation with Cameron Payne or they simply think Turner is the better pick for them.  Either way, Larry Bird has the heir apparent for Roy Hibbert.

Next up are the Utah Jazz, who could go in any number of different directions.  Unfortunately for them, a lot of those different directions happen to play small forward, just like their star player Gordon Hayward.  Still, Devin Booker could give them some shooting.  Beyond that your guess is as good as mine and I wouldn't rule out a trade.

Like the Celtics, the Jazz are flush with young players and draft picks and they'd like to take the next step in the team's progression in the stacked Western Conference. So if the Celtics get in a bidding war for a star player on the trade block, don't be too surprised to see the Jazz sitting at the table.

Still, they are on the clock for this mock draft, so pick them a winner.
