2020 NBA Draft mock #26: Boston Celtics- Leandro Bolmaro

This is the second of Boston’s three first-round picks in the 2020 NBA Draft. The Celtics are likely to choose at least one draft and stash player or to make a trade. That gives them a bit of roster flexibility heading into next season.

Leandro Bolmaro is the perfect candidate for that. The 19-year-old is a 6’8 forward that can handle the ball and make plays. He primarily played for Barcelona’s second team this season. Bolmaro is not ready for NBA minutes, but the skill set has every team excited.

The Celtics have the luxury of leaving him in Europe for a season or two to let him develop. He can come to the NBA when he is ready to play a role. There is plenty of upside here. Guys this big capable of playing even some point guard are dangerous. Bolmaro just needs time to develop. If he reaches his ceiling, Bolmaro will be one of the best players from this class.

Expect Leandro Bolmaro to be a first-round pick on draft night. Multiple teams are excited about his potential on both ends of the floor. It will be interesting to see which one takes the shot on the 19-year-old.

Next: No. 27
