Paul Pierce Wants Boston Celtics To Trade Top Pick

Barclays Center to host 2017 NBA Draft for fifth-straight year

The good news is, Thomas is willing and ready to work with him if ever the Celtics do. "One is a lot about the future, and one is in the present". If the C's do draft Fultz, as expected, it will be interesting to see if they trade Avery Bradley or Marcus Smart to clear up a potential logjam in the backcourt. May.

The NBA playoffs are still going on, but with the offseason having already started for 26 teams, rumors about the impending draft and free agency period are already in full gear. The Celtics' own the Nets' first-round pick next year, too, and barring a rapid revival in Brooklyn, that could be the No. 1 again. IT4 is that team's heart but he's also a 2018 free agent Danny Ainge really might not want to commit long-term money to. The fate of The Boston Celtics would be changed forever. Fultz is considered the most talented player in the draft and could be the "most ready" to contribute. Thomas and Fultz have known each other for years, as both played at the University of Washington. Thomas is an elite scorer, but a defensive liability at 5-9, and the Celtics hold the No. 1 pick in the 2017 draft, where point guard Markelle Fultz widelly viewed top prospect.

Are the Celtics looking towards the future with a young point guard or will they try to land an established veteran for the 2017-2018 National Basketball Association season?

It's pretty hard for any fan to dislike Thomas, a 5-foot-9 guard who can score easily and lead a very good Celtics team to the 4th best record in the league. The extra pick in next year's draft from Boston in the George trade could be used for a PF. Boston can go over the cap to sign all of those players, but will need to have anyone else they hope to have on board locked up prior to doing so. Before they acquired him via a trade with the Phoenix Suns in 2015, they were seeking for a player who can help turn the tables around for them.

KKR opt to field against Sunrisers in IPL eliminator
Uthappa, though would like to forget the previous match after he scored just one when he was asked to open the innings with Lynn. The continuous showers reduced the KKR chase in Eliminator held at the same stadium on Wednesday night to a six over the affair.

This is one reason Boston should not trade the top pick. Most teams won't do a pick for a player straight up, so the Celtics may have to throw in another player along with the pick depending on what type of player they are looking for.

Personally I would not trade the number 1 overall pick, you do not run into that pick often. Someone more probable that the Celtics could trade for could be someone like Kenneth Faried or Thaddeus Young. Everybody knows that everybody is counting us out.

As ESPN NBA writer Zach Lowe also pointed out on "The Jump", Boston needs to consider if even adding a player like George, Butler or Hayward to the roster would be enough to knock off LeBron James and the Cavs in the East.
