    So, let's say you're the Celtics and you finally get that #1 pick. Who do you take? Is Fultz an easy choice over Ball? What about Jackson? Does your view change if you ignore need?

    If I'm the Celtics, I'd go with Ball. At 6'6 190, Stevens could get very creative with how he uses Ball's length at a few different positions, especially with the lack of size from Thomas and Bradley.

    In other draft news, I'm pleasantly surprised with Texas A&M's Robert Williams to return for a sophomore year despite many pundits pegging him as a lottery pick. He's considered a defensive-whiz, but his extra year+ of college will help Williams develop more of an offensive game and become a high-lottery pick. It's refreshing to see his approach to his pro prospects and I wish him the best at A&M next season.

    This isn't a great draft for the Celtic's needs.

    Unfortunately there's not KAT or Brow in this one.

    And the team has a lot of point guards already.

    I do wonder if a trade down is the best option to get some future draft capital as well. But I will say Ball is the best prospect IMO. But either him or Fultz would work.
