Isaiah Thomas Talked To Prospect Markelle Fultz About Celtics, No. 1 Pick

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. Trading this pick is one that is too tough, you have players at that slot that are potential game changers and can alter the direction of a franchise for the next 10 years.

It could be an interesting Summer if the Bulls and Celtics discuss trade possibilities.

"He asks questions; I answer them", Thomas added. That makes him opting out and heading for unrestricted free agency all the more likely.

The All-NBA voting may have opened a clearer path for Gordon Hayward to head for Boston this offseason.

"You trade this pick, because he can not help the Celtics get over the top", Pierce said. So, if, I don't know, Philly goes to them and says we'll give you number three, and we'll also give you this, this, this and this to switch spots with us, this is a great draft, like I'm pretty sure the Celtics could talk themselves into Josh Jackson at number three. "I'm trying to look past it, but I guess it's never going to go away". Take Markelle Fultz number 1 and pray in four years he is Russell Westbrook.

If all of this happens by next season look for Avery Bradley or Smart to be gone, if they decide to keep both of those Thomas will be gone. "It's always gonna be, 'Well, he's 5'9".' And, I mean, I'm never gonna be OK with it.
