If Michael Porter Jr. falls in the NBA Draft, Celtics should consider trading up for him

26 days ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

When it comes to the NBA draft, it's not unusual for a player pegged as a can't-miss prospect to inexplicably dip on the eve of the draft. One of the great examples of this was Paul Pierce, considered by most coming out of Kansas as a top-5 talent in 1998 who was on the board when it was time for the Celtics to select at No. 10. Boston picked Pierce who went on to have a Hall of a Fame-worthy career that includes an NBA title in 2008 and his jersey number 34 being retired by the franchise.
