Now that we know where the Boston Celtics will be picking in next month's draft, the mailbag is overflowing with questions about the draft and how the roster will look next season.

A: Finally, Forsberg Mock 1.0 can see the light of day! I won't bore you with the non-Celtics portion (oh yes I will: Joel Embiid, Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins, Dante Exum, and Julius Randle in spots 1-5) and that puts the Celtics on the clock. The phones are ringing in the Celtics' executive offices. Let's give a listen. ...

Q: Would the C's trade No. 6 for two mid-first-round picks from the Suns or Bulls? Many quality prospects/trade asset between Nos. 14-20 (Jusuf Nurkic, Elfrid Payton, T.J. Warren?) -- @KaraokeJack
