5 teams that need to nail the NBA Draft, ranked

Paul Pierce wants the Celtics to trade the No. 1 draft pick

Paul Pierce wants the Celtics to trade the No. 1 draft pick

The Nets finished with the NBA's worst record this past season at 20-62, but had traded away their selection in the draft to the Celtics as part of the deal four years ago that saw Boston send stars Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets in a blockbuster deal for multiple first-round picks.

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.

The Boston Celtics won the 2017 NBA Draft Lottery, and if they decide to hold onto the number one overall pick, expect them to draft freshmen point guard Markelle Fultz out of the University of Washington.

Here the Celtics get the superstar that fits in perfectly to what they like to do on both ends, and keep Fultz and Jaylen Brown.

Foot Locker tanks 16% on weak earnings as sneaker sales lag
State of Alaska Department of Revenue increased its stake in shares of Foot Locker by 6.1% in the third quarter. Total expenses were 86.61 percent of quarterly revenues, up from 85.10 percent for the same period past year .

Markelle Fultz will nearly surely be the first player taken in the draft. Some of the top prospects include guard Markelle Fultz from Washington, guard Lonzo Ball from UCLA and forward Josh Jackson from Kansas.

If the Celtics don't want to draft, can they go out and trade it? Next to Isaiah Thomas, the Celtics back court would be one of the best in the National Basketball Association. Thomas also stated that he believes they could together thrive as teammates. Someone more probable that the Celtics could trade for could be someone like Kenneth Faried or Thaddeus Young.

We'll see if this is a deal that comes to fruition.
