The Houdini believes the Boston Celtics should look into adding these two future potential draft-day steals over the next few years.

While the Boston Celtics currently have a unicorn on the roster, they could stand to add at least one more in the coming seasons. Tacko Fall has been a bit player at best and an irrelevant one at worst this past season, but the performance of other unicorns has inspired hope for the Senegalese super-giant.

Kristaps Porzingis became a 20 point/10 rebound per game double-double machine, while Bol Bol broke out in the Lake Buena Vista bubble with his versatility given his seven-foot-two frame. Unicorns are all the rage right now, and the Cs could certainly use one with a higher ceiling than Fall.

At best, Tacko Fall qualifies as a backup center who protects the rim at a snail’s pace. Finding a longer-term solution for the position should be Danny Ainge’s focus going forward. With Daniel Theis and Robert Williams bridging the gap for next season, there isn’t an immediate need for a big man in the 2020 NBA Draft.

That said, Ainge should eventually try and find a franchise big man. As Anthony Davis just showed, a dominant center can still have his way in the postseason, and the Cs have lacked a star or even quasi-star at the position since Al Jefferson in the late 2000s.

If the Cs front office targets either of these two athletic specimens, it could be a franchise-changing draft pick. Here are two Houdini-approved unicorn targets the Boston Celtics should pursue:
