Isaiah Thomas Talks To Markelle Fultz About Playing Together With Celtics

The Boston Celtics secured the #1 pick in the NBA Draft at the lottery on Tuesday night, thanks to a trade in 2013 which sent Celtics legend Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and others to the Brooklyn Nets.

While some question if Fultz and Celtics star Isaiah Thomas could co-exist in the same backcourt, Fultz says that wouldn't be an issue at all if Boston does indeed select him.

Yes, the Celtics remain in the final four of the playoffs this season - pending three more LeBron tours de force - but their big plans are for next season, when they are poised to complete a painstaking rebuild with two more marquee additions.

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

With the top player in the draft being Markelle Fultz, the pressure to trade the pick isn't as intense as last season. As a team with an All-NBA point guard already, it seems like they could possible trade the pick. The C's already have a stud point guard in Isaiah Thomas, the third-leading scorer in the National Basketball Association this past season, and there's only one ball.

"Championships", Thomas said. "MVPs". To make matters worse, the Celtics have the Nets first round pick in 2018 as well. There are those Celtics fans who would much rather see the team go after a guy who can help the team right now, rather than a younger talent who needs some time to develop. Even if the Celtics fail to get past the Cavaliers, they will get better this offseason and increase their chances of bringing banner number 18 to the TD Garden.
