We know, we know - all you want to talk about is trading the Celtics' No. 6 pick in a deal for Kevin Love.

But let's say that just doesn't come to fruition.

Instead, the C's have to make their picks. So, who are they going for?

A. Sherrod Blakley, Kyle Draper, and Jimmy Toscano give their predictions for the C's at both the No. 6 spot and the No. 17 spot.

"I think for them when you look at the fact that Rajon Rondo is going into the final year of his deal, Avery Bradley is a restricted free agent, I think you have to address that perimeter position to some degree," Blakely said. "And frankly, of all the guys available that they can pursue, I think that Marcus Smart is the smart choice. He's a combo guard and maybe more than anything else, he's an agitator. He gets under people's skin. When you look at this Celtics team the last couple of years, when you see them kind of fade of away, they lost a little bit of that. When Tony Allen left, James Posey, those types of players that may not be the most talented guys on the floor, they have a way of making an impact because of just their demeanor. And Marcus Smart is that kind of player."

Toscano agrees with Blakely, saying that in a perfect world there would be a swingman or center there.

Draper is aiming for Julius Randle, saying that he thinks Randle could even start for the Celtics at the beginning of next season, unlike Smart.

The guys also give their picks for the No. 17 pick, including a few small forwards.
