The Boston Celtics had three picks in the 2012 NBA Draft. In the first round, they had back to back picks at 21 and 22. In the second round, they had the 51st selection.
With their first pick, the Celtics selected Jared Sullinger. Sullinger was a very solid pick. He has some injury concerns but he’s definitely a top ten talent. Fab Melo was their selection at 22. He’s a raw shotblocking center but he could have a future in the league.
Their second rounder was Kris Joseph. I’m not high on Joseph but at 51, you aren’t going to get a very good player. If he makes the team at all, that’s a bonus.
Boston Celtics Draft Grade: B+
