Joseph was a good scorer in college, and particularly effective from the three-point-line but like all second round picks, he’s got warts. He’s not the most explosive or athletic player, and at 215 pounds, there are questions about his strength.
We’ll also have to see how he stacks up as a man-defender after playing zone at Syracuse.
This is the second year in a row the C’s have selected teammates, after nabbing Purdue duo JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaun Moore last June.
Moore appears to have found a place somewhere on the Celtics roster. We’ll see if Joseph can do the same.
