Also of note is that Leon Powe was listed in the Noteworthy section. Also not bad for the 49th pick.
Leon Powe (BOS) has started to play solid minutes off the bench for the Celtics. On Monday, he scored 10 points and grabbed seven boards against Orlando.
Both of these kids are great team players. Danny did a great job in the draft to be able to trade for both of these kids. And they are only going to get better.
