With the draft less than three weeks away, the Celtics Talk TV panel of CSNNE.com C's Insider A. Sherrod Blakely, SportsNet Central's Kyle Draper and CSNNE.com's Jimmy Toscano take a look at which way the draft stocks of some likely picks are moving.
The Celtics have the Nos. 6 and 17 picks in the first round on June 26.
Blakely: "The guy who has the greatest opportunity to move up is Kyle Anderson of UCLA, 6-9, 230 pounds. In workouts, he really can do nothing but the help his stock."
Toscano: "Here's a name everyone might not know, Kristaps Porzingis, a Latvian 7-footer. He can run the floor. He'd be great with Rondo at [pick] No. 17. He needs to put on a little weight, but they can work on that. He's not going to start on Day 1."
Draper: "Aedrian Payne out of Michigan State. To me, he's a guy who comes into the NBA ready to play from Day 1."
Blakely: "Jerami Grant of Syracuse. He's a man with no position. There's a fear that he's Fab Melo 2.0"
Toscano: "Dougie 'McBuckets'. Doug McDermott [of Creighton]. It seems like he's a Top-10 guy. I think that's a little high up. He's kind of a guy without a position, too, but he can shoot."
Draper: "My guy is Tyler Ennis out of Syracuse. Before the draft lottery was held, he was projected as a late lottery pick. Maybe 13-14-15...I think he's sliding back to 18-19-20."
