Paul Pierce Wants Boston Celtics To Trade Top Pick


In the fall of 2013, such a decision was made in regard to the player who many are predicting will be the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Thomas and Fultz are both better with the ball in their hands, so there would be diminishing returns on the pairing.

Game 2 of the Celtics-Cavaliers series will be played today, still at the TD Garden. But the latter is sure the two could work together. That includes Marcus Smart and Isaiah Thomas, and anything else they needed to get where he wanted to go. "He's a good friend of mine". They just happened to play better than us in Game 1. "If not, we'll go from there".

The Celtics haven't revealed much about their draft plans - it's only been three days after all - so we'll just have to wait and see if there'll be an all-Husky backcourt in Boston in the near future.

Williams, whose own play had been sharply declining, was let go soon after, and by 2015-16, the Nets were in an organizational free-fall, with an bad draft-position outlook to boot. Thomas also stated that he believes they could together thrive as teammates.

On the other hand, Thomas was infamously selected by the Sacramento Kings with the No. 60 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, which is notably the last pick in the entire event.

Thomas usually starts on the wing and gets a double staggered screen that allows him to turn the corner and go downhill and attack the basket.

"You trade this pick because [Markelle Fultz] can not help the Celtics get over the top". After their 15 championship in 1984, Red Auerbach had secured the pick by trading popular point guard, (and folk hero: "Henderson steals the ball"), Gerald Henderson, to The Seattle Supersonics for their first round pick in the 1986 draft. "That's the way I would probably think about it".

DeMatha Catholic (Hyattsville, Md.) is historically one of the more prolific basketball powers in the country, and Mike Jones has been at the program's helm for the last 15 years.

Thomas did just that when he arrived in Boston and he continues to lead the Celtics. Utah is the favorite to re-sign him since they can offer him considerably more money than the Celtics. 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. "Like, we want to win this series, and that's what we're trying to do". In Steven's high screen-and-roll offense, Thomas absolutely thrives as the primary ball handler.
