7-footer Kristaps Porzingis
I read that Kristaps Porzingis will enter the NBA draft this season. I dont know much about him but he was projected to be a mid first rounder next season. The Celtics have a need for a rim protecter Porzingis may be an option with their second first round pick. Anyone got any good info on him?
Celtics don't have a second round pick this year
Koty please read the post, 2nd first round pick as in they have 2 this season
As I folow this guy for some time, I can tell, that is not 100% sure that he will not cancel his candidature for this year. If he will be draft promise for first round from team, that he likes, maybe he will go in this year. 1-2 weeks ago he say, that he will not particapete for this years draft. But today announce that he will.
As I can tell, he got all skills. Weak side for him is rebounds and biggest problem for now is weak frame. But he adjust his game. He is great defender and great shooter ... has good dribling skills and passing skills.
I could see them going Nurkic at 17 if he's still available. His game reminds me of a young Pekovic as he is a true physical center. I thin that is something that the Celtics are missing with their big men. You do make a good point that they are missing a rim protector as well.
I'd be surprised but thrilled if Nurkic fell to 17. I like him more than Randle and Vonleh.
This guy looks like he could be the best of the international bigs. He has the athleticism and jumper to play PF as well as center.
He's a pure center
Anybody have a good comparison for this guy?
