Paul Pierce Thinks Celtics Have To Trade The #1 Overall Pick

19 May 2017

By looking at the available options, the 27-year-old star may decide it's time to join Isaiah Thomas and the Celtics in the East to help them try to defeat Cleveland.

ESPN has already reported that Fultz is the clear choice for the Celtics if they keep the pick instead of trading it to acquire a star such as Paul George or Jimmy Butler. "One is a lot about the future, and one is in the present".

It was fun to hear Embiid speak this way, but for the Sixers and their fans, another expectation is more pressing and concerning: whether Embiid will be with the team, in the lineup, all season.

Tuesday night the Los Angeles Lakers earned the rights to the second overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Celtics take scoring load off Thomas
So far this National Basketball Association playoffs, the trend has been that the home team has usually come out on top. He's been even better against the Wizards , upping those percentages to 69 percent and 59 percent, respectively.

"This is pretty good", said Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck.

This week couldn't get much better for the Boston Celtics. The Celtics won 25 games in the first season after the trade but their win total has improved in each of the next three seasons, culminating in getting the top seed in the Eastern Conference this season. "It felt just like winning Game 7 last night", Grousbeck told reporters. Cleveland led by double digits the final three quarters and by 20 for almost half the game. They rebounded relatively quickly, however, and then bolstered their squad with the No. 3 overall pick previous year thanks to Brooklyn. I hope it happens.

King will probably be mocked once again a year from now, when the Celtics - again - get Brooklyn's first-round pick.

It was allegedly a sad day four years ago when the Celtics dealt away both Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Brooklyn Nets for four first round picks.

Sen. Burr says Flynn hasn't responded to subpoena
Burr told reporters Thursday that Flynn's lawyer informed the panel he will not abide by a subpoena for private documents. Flynn is faced with mounting legal bills, and held a meeting with friends to try to spur more work for his lobbying firm.

Vogel, who admitted to feeling "awkward" on the dais for the made-for-TV portion of the NBA Draft Lottery because of the tension of the teams, said there's no reason why the Magic can't mine the draft for an elite player with the No. 6 pick. Thomas was the last overall pick by the Sacramento Kings in the 2011 draft. Boston going to take Markelle Fultz, he's a good player.

Ball is so adamant about Lonzo playing for the Lakers that he confirmed rumored reports that his son will only work out for them.

Editor's note: SportsDay's Eddie Sefko recently wrote a series of columns chronicling the Mavericks' NBA draft lottery picks.

Isaac has the top projected Statistical Plus Minus (SPM) for his first five years in the National Basketball Association, according to our model, which gives him a 64 percent chance to play at the level of a bona fide National Basketball Association starter or better. A knock down shooter and big scoring threat such as Malik Monk makes a ton of sense in Philly.

Lobs are Trending at the Cannes Film Festival
The 31-year-old actress let her long tresses loose, while opting for bold, dark lips and nails to compliment her attire. But Bella's latest sexy stunt at this year's fest just took things to a whole new level.

Ainge said the lottery victory, coupled with the team's playoff run, vindicates his decision to hold onto the pick rather than use it as a bargaining chip at the trade deadline. "But sometimes you have to make your own luck, which we believe we haven't done enough of".
