Guerschon Yabusele Was Just As Shocked As You That Celtics Drafted Him At No. 16

The Boston Celtics shocked just about everyone when they selected Guerschon Yabusele with the No. 16 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, including Yabusele.

Yabusele, a 20-year-old stretch forward from France, was asked if he was expecting to be drafted by the Celtics as high as he was, and his answer was a resounding no.

The good news for the Celtics is Yabusele shot 42 percent from 3-point range and tallied 11.5 points and 6.8 rebounds in 28.7 minutes per contest this season for Rouen, a French club team. But The Vertical also is reporting Yabusele likely is a stash-and-dash player, meaning fans will have to wait a bit to see him in green.

Maybe the shock will wear off by then?
