Markelle Fultz: Thomas believes he and Fultz can coexist

The pick originally belonged to the Nets, but Boston was able to acquire it in a 2013 trade that has paid off enormously well for the Celtics.

After being taken with the last pick in the 2011 draft and being dismissed by the Kings after three seasons, Thomas has always played with a chip on his shoulder. Send Young and the Pacers 1st round pick this year to Orlando for the #6 overall pick.

Against the Washington Wizards, the Boston Celtics built a defensive wall of sorts against John Wall that eventually wore him down.

"There are a lot of things that sound good in theory", Stevens said. Fultz is considered the most talented player in the draft and could be the "most ready" to contribute. Like I said, I just want to do whatever I have to do to make the team win. Some are expecting them to select Markelle Fultz who is also a point guard.

It's pretty hard for any fan to dislike Thomas, a 5-foot-9 guard who can score easily and lead a very good Celtics team to the 4th best record in the league. "With a team like that, the defending champions, you can't let them hit first". However, prior to the deadline, Boston merely had a chance of receiving the top pick at that time, so potential trade partners backed off.

Long had posted a Facebook warning to the community that "a violent man" was loose after Hartless was released only weeks later. Disario, responding to a report of a man with a gun, said in his last radio communication that he had the man in sight.

"He asks questions; I answer them", Thomas added.

Personally I would not trade the number 1 overall pick, you do not run into that pick often.

Paul Pierce appeared on ESPN's "The Jump" Wednesday afternoon to discuss the upcoming NBA Eastern Conference Finals series between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Celtics. Someone more probable that the Celtics could trade for could be someone like Kenneth Faried or Thaddeus Young.

In addition, keeping their first round pick meant that the Lakers no longer owed the Orlando Magic the 2019 first round pick in relation to the Dwight Howard trade from the summer of 2012. Everybody knows that everybody is counting us out.

In that deal, Boston traded Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry to Brooklyn for five players (Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks, Keith Bogans and Kris Joseph), and, most importantly, three first-round picks, in 2014, 2016 and 2018 (the National Basketball Association has a rule barring teams from trading first-round picks in consecutive years). Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward makes sense for them, due to his status as a future free agent.
