The Celtics are in dire need of boosting their frontcourt. The news of the doctors having red flagged the forward given his back troubles will surely make some lottery teams have serious doubts about picking the talented player from Ohio State in next week's draft. Apparently, Danny would likely hope to add Sullinger to our roster:
Jared Sullinger has been red-flagged by NBA doctors, who cited concerns with his back, and most GMs feel that it will, in fact, cause his draft stock to slide. Sullinger’s lack of overall athleticism had already created some doubts, and perceived medical issues certainly won’t help. That said, the Celtics reportedly wouldn’t mind giving him a shot, and might look to trade up (if necessary) to do so. Right now, they own the Nos. 21 and 22 picks in the first round.
Getting Sullinger would be a huge plus for our team, and I would expect Danny to pick him up provided he is available at #21. Sullinger is a very talented player that would fill a need in our team and hopefully would learn his transition into the NBA with the help of KG. Stay tuned for more news on our Celtics team as draft day approaches.
