30. Boston Celtics - Daron Holmes II, F, Dayton

There's a very good chance that the Boston Celtics look to use this first-round pick to try to add to their depth this summer. With how much their money is tied up at the top of this roster, I find it hard to believe that the Celtics will be able to spend much when it comes to free agency and adding players. In that light, this pick could prove to be increasingly valuable to the Celtics. One potential contributor that could make sense for the Celtics as they look to keep this potential dynasty going is Daron Holmes II. A 6-foot-10 big who has some promise as a defensive anchor and a player who can finish smoothly around the rim, Holmes could naturally be a fit for Boston.

Coming off a junior season in which he averaged 20 points, nine rebounds, and three assists on 54 percent shooting from the field and 39 percent shooting from 3-point range, it's easy to see why he could be a solid selection late in the first round.

Even though Holmes may not have a high ceiling as some of the other big man prospects have in this draft class, Holmes still has plenty of potential as a difference-maker who can contribute to a team sooner rather than later.
