Celtics: NBA Draft prospects
Yi Jianlian, PF
Height: 7 feet
Weight: 230 lbs
Supposedly a favorite of Danny Ainge, Yi Jianlian has more of an outside game than his size would indicate. He has a range on his jump shot of 18-20 feet and can take his man off the dribble. His body is a concern, as it may limit what position he can defend in the NBA. As of now some threes might give him trouble in the post.
Yi could become the best player in this draft not named Oden or Durant, but Ainge and Doc Rivers don't have the three years or more it will take to watch him develop.
