Boston just finished a season in which it grabbed the No. 1 seed and found out that Isaiah Thomas is a star.
"There ain't going to be another last pick like that", Thomas replied.
If we assume Washington's Markelle Fultz and UCLA's Lonzo Ball go off the board with the top two picks in the 2017 NBA Draft, the Sixers will be looking at talented players, but no obvious ideal fit with the roster in place.
For the better part of this year, it has been assumed that the top two prospects in this year's NBA Draft are Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball.
The reigning National Basketball Association champion Cavaliers toyed with the Celtics in last night's 117-104 final at TD Garden.
MacMullan said she believes the only untouchable on the Celtics right now is Al Horford, who Boston signed last offseason to a max contract. "I talk to him all the time".
(Left to Right) General Manager Danny Ainge Head Coach Brad Stevens and Owner Wyc Grousbeck have plenty of options to make the Celtics even better. Assuming they hold onto the pick, Fultz looks like the early frontrunner. "No", Thomas said with a smile. Thomas said the Washington product has already inquired about the organization. Who they can trade the pick for is the real question. I think if we do that - the clips were showing that where we did that, we played good defense that possession, we got stops, but when we left guys on islands and by themselves and not talking and communicating, that's when they went on their run and opened the game up. "If not, we'll go from there". 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.
