Default Celtics happy to have more size in frontcourt

Jared Sullinger is still very young. Jason Collins is playing with his fifth team in six years. “Darko Milicic” is Serbian for “squandered potential.” Fab Melo is perhaps too raw and too far away to even bring into this conversation yet.

But there are clear and available roles for all with the exception of project Melo, and, combined, they represent a fair leap forward for the Celts from last season. And this is without even getting into holdovers Brandon Bass, Chris Wilcox and, of course, Kevin Garnett.

Sullinger is proving basketball-wise beyond his years, Collins is a solid defender who won’t get lost in the Celtics scheme, and Milicic could finally expand into a true contributor as his role narrows. Or as one former NBA player told us, “Doc may be the guy who can get through to Darko and get that talent out of him. And it helps having KG in his ear, too.”

Project Melo will sink or fail due to for the most part the Celtics coaching staff. We'll see if they can step up to the plate and if Melo can show that he wants to be a solid player in the league.

Melo will take as long to develop as Perkins did.

I like this analogy. I feel like Melo's ceiling is a 2.0 version of Perk and that would be perfect for the 2015-16 Celtics team when he comes around.

Sink or fail? Where's the option C?
