Semi Ojeleye.

Interesting.

6 ' 7" power forward. Small for a 4. But shoots the 3 and plays D.

A couple mock drafts had him going #38 and #24.  19 points and 6.9 boards.

Ugh. My home-town guy, Thomas Bryant, goes #42 to Utah and then off to The Lakers via trade.

Wanted him in Boston. Big banger in the middle.

Going to the enemy. TJ's team will like him. though.

Bryant looks like he needs a little better conditioning.
He has a 7'5 wingspan I believe.

Really improved his offensive game last year. A traditional center. Not certain about conditioning, but don't think it's that bad. Great kid, incredibly hard worker. Hard-nosed defender. May very well stick. You'll like him.

Lots of talk about the G League.

Still not the equivalent of baseball's minor league system, but maybe an upgrade from the way they ran the former D League.

Sounds like the D League with a few more dollars involved. Guess it's called the J league in a couple of years.

Kadeem Allen.

Wouldn't have guessed we'd take him.

Down to wild shots in the dark with these late picks?

Ojeleye is supposedly a high character person, as is Tatum. So is last year's pick, Brown.

Danny has done his homework.

Can't hurt to give him a shot.

Looks like only 1 of the 3 among Yabusele, Nader, and Ojeleye will have a shot at making the Celtic roster next season.

24 years old, 6'-3" tall, 6'-9" wingspan. Can't shoot. D, no 3.

Ojeleye gets a 2 way contract and plays in Portland?

Agree.

Yeah; Zizic and perhaps Ojeleye only ones with any shot, I think. Ojeleye to the new G League.

Nader not an NBA level player. I don't think Yabusele is either.

Hope Zizic's game translates to the NBA...need the boards.

We got Tatum.  Most NBA ready player in the draft and the SF we badly need.  A really good night.

Jabari Bird at 56? Where's our 7 footer Euro draft and stash?

Two strikeouts at 54 and 56, butwatchagonnado? Summer league filler?

Probably a good guess.

Somebody has to round out the summer roster!

Yeah I like Bryant. He just runs with a funny gait, but so did Myles Turner.
