For the Boston Celtics, trading Isaiah Thomas is not the answer

Markelle Fultz Doubles Down On Excitement To Potentially Team With Isaiah Thomas

Losers Phoenix Suns

That gave Celtics fans a day to dream about next year's team, which could add a college star like Washington's Markelle Fultz; at least one fan showed up at Wednesday's game with Fultz's name written on his Celtics T-shirt in marker.

While Fultz will likely be the top pick of the 2017 draft, Thomas was the last pick in 2011. You have to build on this momentum. You want to get over the top. "We'll make sure it's different on Game 2". "That's the way I would probably think about it".

Essentially, in a move to encourage elite talent to remain with the team they were drafted by, the National Basketball Association is allowing teams to offer certain players a "super max" contract, which is equivalent to 35 percent of the salary cap at the conclusion of their second contract.

It's no secret the Boston Celtics have their sights set on making a major addition to the roster this offseason and the odds of them doing so got a bit of a boost on Thursday afternoon when the league announced the All-NBA teams for the 2016-17 season.

But the issue with the number 1 pick is that it allows Boston to select the best player in the draft or the one that best fits them. Fultz is considered the most talented player in the draft and could be the "most ready" to contribute.

Isaiah Thomas is right about this: The Cavaliers are not the Monstars. The move would also bring Hayward to Boston to play for his former Butler Bulldogs coach Brad Stevens. "To me, going through the ups and downs of a year, we usually just talk about development in terms of minutes, but going through the ups and downs of a year, especially when you're a young guy, and then taking all those good things and applying them in a game with that kind of intensity is invaluable".

When the Boston Celtics acquired Thomas they were in need of a go-to scoring presence and Thomas filled that role in a way that far exceeded expectations.

Despite averaging 24.8 points and 6.7 assists during the playoffs, which included a historic 53-point outburst against the Wizards in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, Isaiah's Celtics are about to get fed into LeBron's wood chipper. And having the No. 1 pick this year, and potentially the No. 1 overall pick again next year with Brooklyn's pick again, he doesn't have to take that kind of a risk.
