He's going to be a PF mainly, so a 6'10" wingspan is fine for that position.

He's smart and knows how to set screens, roll, or pop. Any 7 footer with those qualities can survive in the NBA.

I watched him play at Gonzaga. Dude is soft as ****. Gets pushed around with little contact.

I saw him get bullied by Brad Waldo of SMU who's like 6'6. He's definitely offensively talented, but his without the ball is pretty terrible.

Eh? Waldow is like 6'9-6'10" and outweighs Olynyk by a good 20 lbs. Olynyk still torched Saint Mary's all 3 times they played this year.

Funny thing is, one of Olynyk's best highlights this season was posterizing Waldow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZioKMBI8bDo

Great job by the celtics to get him. I think he goes down as one of the top 6-8 players in this draft

Thanks OP, didn't know that. Would be useful if he could hit 63% on 3s Anyone wanting to know more about him (or any player in the draft, really) should watch the DraftExpress vids. Here is Olynyk's.
