The Celtics’ Aaron Nesmith at No. 14

The Celtics’ Aaron Nesmith at No. 14

For any player trying to find his way in the NBA early in his career, opportunity in the form of consistent playing time is critical. And playing time was anything but consistent for forward Aaron Nesmith in his time with the Boston Celtics before he was dealt to the Indiana Pacers.

The one-time Vanderbilt standout may yet develop into an important part of the Pacers’ rotation, but he was something of a letdown for Boston fans. That may not be a result entirely of his own making. In any fair assessment of Nesmith’s selection by Boston at No. 14 in the 2020 NBA draft, these things should be taken into consideration.

Watch the draft regrade of Nesmith’s class put together by the folks at the Hoops Reference YouTube channel, and decide for yourself if you think the grade they give him was deserved.
