    Straight from the turkey's mouth.

    The Boston Celtics, champions of the 2007-2008 season, selected the Fenerbah├že ├ťlker club's Semih Erden, who also plays on the Turkish national basketball team. The Portland Trail Blazers drafted another national team member, ├ľmer A┼č─▒k, also of Fenerbah├že ├ťlker.

    Semih Erden, a nearly seven-foot-tall center, became the first international draft pick of Danny Ainge's tenure as the Celtics' general manager.

    A two-time Turkish League All-Star (2007 and 2008), A┼č─▒k split 30 games last year with Alpella and Fenerbah├že, where he averaged 10.2 points per game (PPG), 8.3 rebounds per game (RPG), a league-high 1.90 blocks per game (BPG) and 1.90 steals per game (SPG). In 2007-08 Euroleague action he set a league record for blocked shots in a game with 19 rejections.

    Sorry - you cannot have the 5 minutes you wasted here returned wtf did you expect for 60th pick news.

    This kid has some talent. I've always loved the idea of taking a Euro with a mid to low second round pick. This guy signed a multi year deal overseas, so he won't be here for a few years. Smart pick. A banger who can block shots, plays physical, has skills, and is going to get PT overseas. I wonder what Turk knows about this kid.

    word is he is a head case ... if that's so Perk & Big Baby will have to smack him around till he smartens the frig up with the weirdo crap.

    In any case if he's tougher than Pao ... I'll be happy and that seems very possible.
