First Wade Baldwin, and now this? I CAN'T FEEL MY FACE.
Boston is drafting Deyonta Davis and sending him to Memphis, league sources tell The Vertical.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 24, 2016
There were some mock drafts that had Davis as a lottery pick! Our own Chip Williams had him at #13 overall on his big board! This Michigan State Spartan (built in connection with Zach Randolph, fantastic) can clean the boards and finishes aggressively at the rim. He still needs to develop his body in to an NBA player's physique, but there will be time for that as he growss behind a crowded Memphis front court. His talent is more than solid, and a tremendous value at #31 overall.
Also, the Grizzlies took advantage of all these surprise drops down the draft board and turned Jeff Green into two early second round picks...
