Once again, Frank Urbina and Raul Barrigon of our sister site Hoops Hype have another re-draft, this time around of the 2010 NBA draft. And as has been the case in each of their prior endeavors to, as they put it, reorder the draft the “way it should have been,” there have been a number of Boston Celtics on the move in their revaluation of the draft class from that year.
In fact, a total of six Celtics alums saw their draft position shift up or down the order they were actually taken in all those years ago in a relatively thin cohort when it came to star power.
Let’s dive into which former Celtics were re-drafted where.
No. 28 – Jordan Crawford

Actual position: No. 27
Career earnings: $7,468,316
Career stats: 12.2 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 3.1 apg, 41.1 FG%, 31.7 3P%
“Scoring wasn’t much of a problem for Jordan Crawford as he once dropped 41 points in an NBA game,” writes H/H.
“He was certainly not lacking in confidence, though he wasn’t very efficient with his bucket-getting and didn’t offer much outside of high-difficulty buckets off the bench.”
No. 13 – Al-Farouq Aminu

Actual position: No. 8
Career earnings: $72,262,285
Career stats: 7.5 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 1.2 apg, 42.0 FG%, 33.2 3P%
“A 3-and-D role player, Al-Farouq Aminu knew his role and didn’t try to do too much, which helped him stick it out in the NBA for 11 seasons despite his lack of reliable shooting touch, dribbling ability or playmaking,” offered H/H.
“Aminu was a solid slasher and rebounder off the wing,” they add of the Celtics short-timer.
No. 12 – Evan Turner
