Celtics Attempting To Trade Up For Myles Turner

The Celtics are actively attempting to trade up in the draft to select Myles Turner, according to Andrew Perna of RealGM. The 19-year-old is the 10th best prospect in this year’s draft class, according to Chad Ford of Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress ranks him as the 11th best.

Boston owns the No. 16 and No. 28 picks in the first round of next Thursday’s draft. The team also owns the No.33 and No. 45 overall picks, as our Draft Order page indicates.

Turner has the potential to be a star, as Eddie Scarito of Hoops Rumors explained in his profile of the big man. The Celtics have a roster full of young talent. Yet, no one player has the upside that Turner possesses, so the attempt to move up in the draft makes sense from a team building standpoint. Boston could afford to consolidate multiple draft picks and take a chance on such a player due to the stockpile of assets that President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge has accumulated.

    His talent was underutilized at Texas but seems like he’d thrive under Stevens. Like this move.

      It would be a move based on upside more than anything else, but for these Celtics, I like it, even though I’m not particularly optimistic about Turner’s chances.
