Boston Celtics Draft Pick Jayson Tatum Addresses Media

The Latest: 76ers, Celtics fans set to pack arena for draft

Jayson Tatum is a prolific scorer and maybe the numbers don't show that, but he can score in many ways.

And he's 19 years old, which is both a blessing and a burden when you're an National Basketball Association team executive charged with committing at least two years and millions of dollars into a young man. "They're a great team, they were the No. 1 seed in the East previous year, and I just think with so many great veterans and great players like Isaiah Thomas and Al Horford, [Jae] Crowder, [Avery] Bradley, there's so much I can learn from those guys". The feeling is everything I wished for and more I'm trying not to cry right now. "I've been drafted to Phoenix, and I'm going to go there and I'm going to make the best of it".

But once again we're talking about potential, which of course is another word for unpredictable. "They're going to be very happy". They've notch one ACC crown but their respective careers were still disappointing - without putting marks along the way.

She added that cladding on three buildings has so far tested positive as combustible. "We did our best I promise". Police says 79 people are either dead or missing and presumed dead in the blaze, although that number may change.

But it was the same way for last year's No. 3 pick overall - Jaylen Brown. "Now, this is the beginning, and there's so much ahead that I want to accomplish". "(The Celtics) would not include the No. 3 pick in any package for (Butler)", Lowe writes.

"He does whatever he has to do to help you win", said an National Basketball Association scout who said he has seen Tatum play "at least a dozen times". "We call him the minister of disinformation", he said. "It won't be exactly like we'll play come September (in training camp), but a lot of the lingo, some of the coverages, some of the offensive structure, those types of things - although quick in three days - will help kind of create that new foundation so that he can immerse himself". Seeing that Isaiah Thomas shot most of the team's free throws past year, this gives him the ability to pass the ball in better hopes of making the shot off the contact rather than going toe to toe with players that tower over him. "That's a good thing".

"(Tatum) fits with the way we want to play but also with who we want to be".

Talking about the possibility the Celtics and Ainge could maneuver to get him (for example, Sacramento has the fifth and 10th picks), Smith said, "I know he likes me". I got to know Josh for one. "I wasn't too excited about playing the four coming in at Kansas, but we caused a lot of mismatch problems and I think it really bettered me as a player". Back when Boston had the top pick, Jackson said, he figured Fultz was their man so there was no need to waste everyone's time. Compete now and compete later. "That's somebody I look up to and that I enjoy watching play".

This was the 15th draft that Ainge has presided over. Once a projected pick in this year's draft before deciding to return to college for his senior season, Graham said he will have no conflicting emotions while watching Thursday's broadcast. He has a well-deserved reputation as a stellar executive by making smart, shrewd decisions.

It feels like a missed opportunity.
