The Celtics are playing their best basketball of the season in these playoffs, but the aging bodies of Garnett, Pierce, and Allen will be on their last legs over the next two to three seasons. The addition of Turner to the 76ers and Favors to the Nets will no doubt create a more competitive Atlantic division in the near future.
Boston has the nineteenth pick in the draft on June 24th and will have an assortment of big men to choose from. With this being a weak draft, Boston should look to draft a big man they can develop over the next two to three seasons and have ready to insert in the lineup with Rondo, Tony Allen, and Kendrick Perkins once Garnett and Rasheed Wallace retire.
UNC PF Ed Davis and Marshall C Hassan Whiteside are projected lottery picks but will get serious looks from Boston if they happen to slip through the cracks to nineteen.
Kentucky PF/C Daniel Orton, who opted for the draft after a freshman season in which he made a name for himself on the defensive end, may also be available. The upside (7'7 wingspan) and raw talent potential of VCU PF/C Larry Sanders should also get a look from the Celtics. Nevada SF/PF Luke Babbitt is noted as one of the more talented draft prospects, and should he be available at nineteen, he may be the guy for Boston.
