Draft2011 (Pick 1)

Analyst CommentHis value probably stays similar pairing with Hayward instead LeBron, but I expect an increase in free throw rate as he has the ball in his hands more

Very disappointed indeed in having rozier attack the basket more than him.... He's standing a lot in corner, not even bringing the ball up half the time.

for someone who should be super aggressive, he sure has been super passive...

LBJ came back during the 14-15 season. He shot 43% season prior. Better cast here in BOS and advancement in his game since then so thinking 44ish-45ish?

He still shot 45-46% pre LBJ. So only a slight down tick.

Fair to expect a revision down to his fg now with Hayward gone and him likely to shoulder more of the offense? Can see couple more low %age hero ball shots especially when they can't generate a shot with time winding down on he clock.

I don't see that much of a bump in his assist to be honest. Marcus Smart is going to handle the ball a lot more as his usage increases. Rozier and Smart are more likely to benefit in the assist department than what Irving was already project for.

Keno that is not even close. Kyrie clear best in deal. Oladipo arguably could be better than CJ, but can give CJ the edge for now. Anyway Oladipo > Horford.

I wonder if Kyrie's 3/g is low. Couldn't he end up with 8 to 9 attempts per hame?

They do not need to change anything. If he simply does what IT2 did then his projection is legit

Sure, but Kyrie is the only real controversial trade and the one fans will be really angry about if he doesn't improve as a 25 year old with his own team now. You know what Hayward, Horford etc are or what to expect from a rookie. Also of those others none are on a 2 year contract that really matter to bring back. Hayward 4 years, Tatum 4 years-restricted, Horford 3 years and old, Smart role player etc etc. Kyrie was on a great team and already walked cause he didn't get things his way. 2 year trial....

Good point, but Ainge also has to make the Tatum trade look good, and the Morris trade, and the Hayward and Horford signings, and he's still trying to make the Rozier and Smart picks look good and....

From what I've read it sounds like they are going to change the offense more to suit him. I believe that they will put the ball in his hands most of the game. He's only on a 2 year deal, got to keep him happy. If he leaves that trades a bust. I think 28ppg and 7apg myself.

It's definitely possible, but playing with Hayward, Horford and Smart, many people are going to get assist opportunities. Perhaps his 6.1 (the same number he averaged in last season pre-LeBron) is his baseline
33.9d
draftstreetking
That makes logical sense but reading some articles it really sounds like the Celtics believe he will be better passer in their system. That's what Ainge said so I think they will make it a priority to pump up the assist numbers if for no other reason it makes the trade look better. I think he gets 7 assist a game.

IT3 averaged 5.9 apg last year. And there were less playmakers on that roster and Stephens offense really moves the ball around. I think kyrie puts up similar stats as what IT3 did last year

Aren't you expecting his assists to go up a little bit, as Hayward has less impact then Lebron and will have the ball in his hands much more than in Cleveland?
