Markelle Fultz Considered 'Clear Choice' For Celtics If They Keep No. 1

Markelle Fultz Considered 'Clear Choice' For Celtics If They Keep No. 1”

Fultz is the top prospect in the 2017 class, leaving Washington after one year of college basketball. Those are just two of the many power forwards that could come to the Celtics by trading the first overall pick.

"You trade this pick, because he can not help the Celtics get over the top", Pierce said on ESPN's "The Jump" Wednesday afternoon.

Michael DePrisco has wasted no time in compiling the Top 30 Players for the Boston Celtics. That said, one benefit of the Nets signing veterans like Redick is that the Celtics 2018 first-round pick via Brooklyn would be worsened. 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. He showed great instincts in the pick-and-roll, proved he could create his own offense off the dribble, and flashed the ability to make game-changing plays on the defensive end. He hit 52 three-pointers at a 41 percent clip.

Players usually take pride in being one of the first to be selected in the draft, but ESPN's Chad Ford has reported that several agents told him they were considering having their clients skip workouts with the Celtics because they want their clients to have a chance to start right away. Neither of those players earned All-NBA status this season, which means that there is less of an incentive for them to stay in their current spots.

Not everyone agrees that going with the rookie is the right move.

Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals went about as poorly for Boston as they could have imagined. You're a 50-win team, you're the No. 1 seed. "If you can acquire a Paul George, a Jimmy Butler or a Gordon (Hayward) from Utah, you have to do it".

It's no secret that the Boston Celtics were interested in Paul George at this season's trade deadline, but the Indiana Pacers reportedly asked for too much in return for their star forward.

Hayward has the opportunity to opt out of his contract with the Jazz this summer. "There's a lot of flexibility there between the draft picks and free agency".

- Or, they decide to play the Lakers by leaning towards Ball but prompting Magic Johnson to get on the phone and offer to trade up in the draft.

The lottery takes place 23 June AEDT.
