Draft Workout Notebook: C’s Look At Adams, Larkin

 

The Celtics have been working out players in advance of next month’s draft. They’ve only one pick in this year’s draft, an uncharacteristically high #16. However, Danny Ainge will be considering adding picks, moving up and down, and, in what’s expected to be one of the weakest drafts in a decade, possibly trading out of the draft entirely.

Assuming the C’s keep the pick, they’ve already looked at two possibilities: Center Steven Adams of Pittsburgh and undersized (5’11″) point guard Shane Larkin of Miami. Both are projected as top-20 picks, with the 7’0″ Adams the least likely to be on the table when the C’s draft. He could go a few spots earlier.

Here’s the Draft Express scouting video on Adams:

Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston caught up with Celtics Assistant Jay Larranaga, who ran Adams’ workout:

“I thought he was great today,” Larranaga said. “I think he showed his size and athleticism, which is what most people first see. He competed, and he showed a high basketball IQ. I think through these workouts, he’s shown maybe more skill than people realized he had during his year at Pittsburgh. He was just a lot of fun to work with.”

 Forsberg with Larkin:

“I just need to come in here and show how athletic I am, show that I can defend and show that I’m willing to work,” said Larkin. “I’m an undersized guy, so I have to work harder than everybody else. Just go out there and show them those things that’s what is going to help me play in the NBA.

“It’s a great learning process. It’s great to know what people doubt about you so you can go in there and work as hard at that, so when they watch you play, you try to show them that even though they’re doubting it and they don’t think you can do it, you go out there and show them that you can. It’s been a great process. As a kid, you always dream about playing in the NBA. This is a dream. I’m living my dream.”

    I maintain my position that the position we need to be trying to fill is at the center. all signs point to KG returning, which should work out to be a good thing, but only if he isn't run into the ground. I'm not rondo's biggest fan, but we're pretty much stuck with using him next season.

    If rondo plays effectively next year I hope you guys stick to your guns, just keep repeating that mantra

    “rondo’s the problem rondo’s the problem…”
