WITH THE NINETEENTH PICK, THE BOSTON CELTICS SELECT JAMES ANDERSON, G/F/AWESOMENESS, OKLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY (SPONSORED BY T-BOONE PICKENS):

You know why the Celtics take Anderson? Pierce may be re-signing, but he ain’t getting any younger. Anderson gives them an ability to hit shots, some youth, good athleticism, speed to get out in transition with Rondo, and a capable pull-up elbow jumper. If he slides this far, this is an abject steal for the Celtics, who have a younger frontcourt already and just need to fill out the wing to transition to the next phase in the franchise.
