Celtics unable to complete trade with Hornets for #9, miss out on Winslow


Celtics tried hard to trade up for #9, but the Hornets ended up keeping the pick and drafting their guy Kaminsky. Winslow falls into the ecstatic sleazy hands of the Heat and Miami Heat at #10. This was the negative of our playoff push. Don't make the playoffs and stick to the rebuild and the Celtics wouldn't have had to trade up for Winslow. The question now is whether Thomas was worth losing out on Winslow.

The Celtics remain in the #16 slot. I was hoping Myles Turner would slip, but the Pacers just scooped him up. Not the best start for the Celtics.

Update: Simmons agrees
