C's Thomas reaches out to possible No. 1 Fultz

This issue is unlikely a concern for Thomas who is focused on bouncing back after the Cleveland Cavaliers dominated Boston in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Boston Celtics?point guard Isaiah Thomas said his team can not overreact to Wednesday's lopsided loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. If you don't know what I'm talking about. I also know that they're gonna turn it into whatever the best asset it can be.

Thomas went on to say that he's been the shortest player on every team he's ever been on. You trade this pick, because he can not help the Celtics get over the top.

This would be a sport-changing deal, and set up the Sixers to become a power. According to USA Today, the former Celtics great was being interviewed on ESPN's The Jump, when he stated that Boston should trade the No. 1 pick. He's not staying. Trade him and get something for him. The idea here is that pick would be traded for Paul George. "I just try to be aggressive and make it work for our ball club".

Markelle Fultz, projected to be a top pick in June's NBA Draft, was cut from the Dematha Catholic (Hyattsville, Md.) varsity team as a sophomore. It took over 20 seasons before they would win their 17 National Basketball Association championship, winning it in 2008.

Moving forward, I think the Celtics top priority is to not let Tristan Thompson look like a max player.

"[Playing on or off the ball] really doesn't matter to me. We just gotta protect [our] home court in Game 2 and get the win".

"No, not at all", Ainge said when asked if Ball's desire to play for the Lakers would affect the Celtics' decision.

Ball's ascent to stardom might even enable Magic Johnson to convince the Buss family to use the stretch provision on Timofey Mozgov and Luol Deng, opening up room for a second big-name player to come to Los Angeles with George next summer. Without anyone picking before them, the Celtics can take anyone they want and not have to be cautious of other teams trying to draft someone before them. "It's always gonna be, 'Well, he's 5'9".' And, I mean, I'm never gonna be OK with it. But it's still a problem, and they've got five weeks to find a solution.
