What Are The Odds Of Celtics Trading The Sixth Pick?

bos_g_danny-ainge_mb_576We are now less than one month away from the 2014 NBA Draft and business continues to pick up regarding the team’s potential moves over the next month. For right now, there are more questions than answers. How much should the team be willing to give up for Kevin Love? Are betting the team’s chips on Rondo and Love for the foreseeable future a winning move?

Even beyond the Love discussion, there’s still plenty more to wonder about. What are some other kinds of players the Celtics will be looking to target this month? What are the team’s odds of dealing the sixth overall pick and who is worth dealing for it? And who should the Celtics draft at the number 6 and 17 overall spots if they keep their picks?

To discuss all this and more, I joined Marc Bertrand and Chris Gasper over the weekend on 98.5 The Sports Hub. You can listen to full interview below or download the mp3 file as well.

    Kind of funny. Teams were total jerks this year about losing a 2014 1st round pick in a trade. Now everyone outside the Top 4 wants to trade for a star instead instead of using the pick on a project.

      That was exactly my thought — but I suppose it was more of teams attempting (and failing) to get maximum value for what was perceived as a huge asset (i.e. a 2014 1st rounder).

      That and the reality that maybe this draft isn’t as loaded as everyone thought it was.

    Not to be that guy, but the Celtics COULD trade both first rounders this year and next year if they trade them on draft night. The Stepien Rule only applies to future picks, and if traded on draft night this year’s picks wouldn’t be considered future picks.
