Kelly Dwyer of the Yahoo Sports Blog, "Ball Don't Lie" will be joining us from 9-10pm tonight!  Here is his assessment of the Celtics' draft this last Thursday night:

Grade: A

For the last few years, I've lived in Lafayette, Ind., which is just an eight-minute drive from West Lafayette, Ind., where Purdue is located. Both of these players are from Purdue, and I should either be terribly biased in their favor, or reacting negatively and inappropriately based solely on the punk Purdue hipsters who dodge in front of my car every time I cross over the Wabash River to buy used LPs in West Lafayette.

The truth is that I don't care about Purdue, I watch as much Purdue basketball as I do Duke or College of Charleston basketball (that is to say, no basketball), and my location has no impact on this rating.

With that in place, I think Johnson can be a terrific player in the right system, so much so that he was my favorite target for my hometown Chicago Bulls as they picked late in Round 1. And Moore, though his game is full of holes and he is a wing-trapped in a point guard's body, could be a rotation-level talent. Even knowing Johnson's rebounding issues and understanding his small frame, Boston could turn him into a contributor that lasts for years. Not bad, for the end of the first and second rounds. Boilermaker-hoy!

(I don't think that's what they say, here. I'm not at all certain what they say, here.)
