Celtics Open To Drafting Lonzo Ball With Top Pick?

Celtics Open To Drafting Lonzo Ball With Top Pick?

Send George to Boston for the #1 overall pick this year, the Nets #1 pick next year (yes, they own that pick too), Jaylen Brown (last year's #3 overall pick), Jae Crowder, and Amir Johnson. "I just try to be aggressive and make it work for our ball club". "He was on the phone with everybody from coast-to-coast, and he was offering everybody".

When the Boston Celtics acquired Thomas they were in need of a go-to scoring presence and Thomas filled that role in a way that far exceeded expectations.

Paul George has one year left on his contract with the Indiana Pacers before becoming a free agent in the summer of 2018.

Paul Pierce has some sage advice for the Boston Celtics and what they should do with the top overall in the National Basketball Association draft.

There are questions as whether the Celtics would even want Fultz considering they already have a MVP candidate at point guard in Isaiah Thomas and a budding shooting guard in Avery Bradley, who put up the best numbers of his seven-year career this season. The Lakers can be as good as they want to be after next season.

On that very same podcast, Woj floated another pretty interesting free-agent name in connection with your Philadelphia 76ers: Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick. "Whatever a team needs me to do to win, I think I'm capable of doing it". J.J. Redick brings all of those things and if they lose him in L.A., it's more about his shooting that the kind of player he's become.

"It's the mindset you have to have when you go on the road, for Game 1", James said. "He impacts a locker room". In Steven's high screen-and-roll offense, Thomas absolutely thrives as the primary ball handler.

Not many people are picking the Celtics to defeat the defending champion Cavaliers, but it doesn't really matter because the Celtics future is so bright.

The 2016 pick has turned into the No. 1 overall pick in 2017.

So, let's look at the potential starting lineup.

If I also remember correctly, Redick has been critical of The Process in the past on his (excellent) podcast. "They just happened to play better than us in Game 1, and we've just got to protect home court in Game 2 and get the win".
