Could Randle and Young End Up On the Same Team? Via BleacherReport

Tonight was the NBA draft lottery and we now have a better idea of where James Young and Julius Randle could be drafted. Could they be joining another former player in Beantown?

The Celtics have the 6th and 17th pick in this season’s draft and that just so happens to be in the same area our two former Cats are projected to be picked. Randle is projected sixth by draft express and could be a perfect fit for Boston’s power forward problem. Young, if he is still around at 17, could be a great complement for Rondo and a weapon for BRad Stevens to unleash on the NBA.

The Cavs wound up with the number one overall pick for the 3rd time in four years. Makes you wonder about Cal’s future if Lebron decides to return to his old season after next year. The one player he would love to coach on an unbelievable roster.  It would be hard to pass up but it’s also hard to see that job come open with a new coach. Like Cal said they two seemed destined to pass each other by.

With the picks settled where do you hope the Cats land next month?

    Philly at 3 and 10 could do it too.

    Unlikely but, that would be awesome to see. UK flavored that team before and the players somewhat self destructed under Pitino.

    I personally don’t see Lebron going back to Cleveland. With those young players and Lebron it will take at least 2-3 years before winning a championship. Lebron wants to win now because of his legacy and brand. He wants to pass Kobe and Michael Jordan on the championship rings.

    Lebron is more likely to team up with Carmelo or Kevin Love to win now.

      If Miami wins again, he’s not going anywhere.

    Celtics fans seem to think PF is their most set position w Sullinger and
    Olynyk. They seem to love those guys.

      No one ever accused a Celtics fan of being intelligent.

    Boston fan here…I dont see the Celtics taking Randle. They actually have two really decent PF. Brandon Bass & Jared Sullinger. Sullinger has really developed in his two years there. Look for the Celtics to maybe trade both picks for a all star caliber player. Hopefully Kevin Love. That being said id love to see more Cats playing for Boston.
