O'CONNOR: ZIZIC WOULD GO TOP-10 IN 2017 DRAFT

The rich just keep getting richer....

It seems the Celtics can throw yet another piece onto their treasure trove of assets.

The Celtics stashed two of their first-round picks from the 2016 draft overseas and in the process have seen 23rd overall pick Ante Zizic establish himself as a very promising NBA prospect.

The Croatian center, currently playing in the Turkish League, has boosted his stock with a strong season in what’s expected to be his last before joining the Celtics. Appearing on Toucher and Rich Thursday morning, The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor said that Zizic has improved to the point that he would be a top-10 pick in the 2017 draft. “He looks really good,” O’Connor said. “I liked him last year when I first watched him. I thought, ‘Good energy big man. He’ll have a solid career,’ but then the more you watch him, the more you see.

“This year, he’s really taken a step forward. All his strengths look better. All the things he was already good at like screening, rebounding and rim-protection, he looks better. But he’s also starting to flash a little bit of a mid-range jumper, and he’s never had bad mechanics, but now that shot’s starting to fall. So maybe he can be more than that energy big man. Maybe he’s a little bit more dynamic than that.

“If I’m the Celtics, I value him as you’re getting a top-10 pick this yea. I think he’d go around nine or 10 in this draft.

Like all the positives about him but until je puts on the Green and plays for us we will not know what to expect. May still be 1-2 yrs away but nice addition nevertheless.

They is the thread where I read that Zizic would be considered a lottery pick it he was drafted this year. Instead of just a lottery pick, it actually was top ten pick.

We need him now.

Time for the rest of his development to take place here.

I don't know about his offense from range, I am concerned that his highlight films do not show him shooting even from the elbow, but inside and rebounding he is likely to be a major upgrade over Zeller for a fraction of the price.
