We have mentioned many times the Boston Celtics‘ obsession with making second round draft picks. They do not currently have one this summer, but you can expect GM Danny Ainge to attempt to acquire one leading up to the draft. A guy that makes sense is Duke senior guard Seth Curry. His older brother, Stephen, starts at point guard for the Golden State Warriors, and he is also the son of Dell Curry, a former standout jump shooter who played a number of years in the NBA. Seth was the glue that held the Blue Devils together this year, and he will surely be missed. He would be a great second round pick for a team this summer and could definitely play in a rotation as early as next year.
The Celtics would do well in trying to acquire Curry as he could be the type of guy that holds down a bench spot for a lengthy career. He really does one thing well and that is jump shooting. Nothing else stands out about his game too much. Jump shooting makes sense as you examine his family tree, and he would immediately become one of the better shooters in the league today. He has great form and also has an effective mid-range game. Celtics head coach Doc Rivers would be a fan of the choice as his son Austin, a guard for the New Orleans Hornets, and Curry were teammates last year for Duke. He is also very close with the Curry family and knows the type of player his team would be getting.
Do not be shocked if Seth Curry somehow finds himself in a Boston Celtics uniform this June.
