Lakers Land No. 2 Pick in 2017 Draft

20 May 2017

Paul Pierce believes that the Celtics would be better off as a franchise with the addition of an established star player in the fold versus a rookie.

On the veteran front, The Vertical reported the Celtics are focused on signing free-agent swingman Gordon Hayward, rather than pursuing a trade for the Bulls' Jimmy Butler (or the Pacers' Paul George, everyone's presumed soon-to-be-Laker) that would cost a small fortune in draft picks and assets. "There ain't going to be another last pick like that".

The early indication is that Boston plans to keep the pick, likely eyeing Fultz as the first selection in the draft.

Theoretically, the Celtics will have another great pick in next year's draft, as they'll once again get the Nets' first round pick.

South Korea's Moon to take cautious approach to THAAD issue
Lee met separately with other senior Chinese officials, who had more forceful words for the South Korean visitor. In the song, group members chant that "about THAAD we say no, no, no", a reference to the U.S.

What does this mean for the future of the Boston Celtics?

"There are a lot of things that sound good in theory", Stevens said. And so our intention would be to make the pick unless someone blows us away with an offer. Fultz has been placed as the top prospect by most of the draft experts.

Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas said he's talked with potential No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz since Boston landed the top spot in Tuesday's draft lottery, adding that he thinks the two could thrive together. They also gave up more points, but the Celtics net margin remained positive at a fairly robust +4.7. There are no big forwards or centers who have enough skills or promise to be taken with the first pick.

Bias' death set the Celtics back for decades, maybe this draft pick will get the Celtics back into their dynasty ways. Who knows if Johnson and Crowder will stick in Indy, they have to throw them in for contract and money reasons to make the trade work with the National Basketball Association.

We May All Acknowledge Destiny 2 Now
But of course we'll reserve judgement until we've seen the whole game in action - and gotten a chance to play it for a while. You'll be able to test out that new system during the Destiny 2 beta, which launches "this summer" (winter in Australia).

"I can play with anybody", Thomas said.

Feel free to tell me where you agree or disagree in the comments. Someone more probable that the Celtics could trade for could be someone like Kenneth Faried or Thaddeus Young.

"You trade this pick, because (Fultz) can not help the Celtics get over the top".

Boston is a longshot to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals, and they could trade their first-round pick for an All-Star that might be able to get them past LeBron James next year.

Business lobby in chilly reaction to Tory manifesto
In a clear swipe at Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party, she said voters would not be fooled by "politicians who promise the Earth and claim no tough choices will be required".
