How the latest NBA Draft and free agency rumors affect the Sixers

How the latest NBA Draft and free agency rumors affect the Sixers

The Boston Celtics' rumors are heating up just days after the team secured the No. 1 overall pick via the NBA's Draft Lottery.

With many expecting Fultz to go at no.1, there is the always awkward situation of your employer hiring your replacement, but not for the Celtics. "His passion for the game has always been obvious, and again, I don't see the fame and fortune that comes with an National Basketball Association career changing that". Fultz seems thrilled to have the chance to play with Isaiah in the Celtics backcourt next year.

"He's a good friend of mine", Thomas said of the fellow University of Washington product, according to ESPN. "We understand that he's from Los Angeles, but we're going to draft whoever can help the Celtics regardless of where the players want to play". Boston acquired the Nets' 2014, 2016 and 2018 first-round picks, as well as the rights to swap in 2017.




"It's the mindset you have to have when you go on the road, for Game 1", James said.

"You don't really want to necessarily trade a number one pick in a really good draft for somebody that's halfway through their career, already making max money". However, Boston fans have already seen it...31 years ago in the summer of 1986.

"Before the draft past year, Danny [Ainge] was trying to get two picks, not just Jaylen Brown", MacMullan said. Start the rumors of George leaving in free agency, Pacers trading him, Pacers somehow extending George like the Thunder did previous year with Russell Westbrook after Kevin Durant bolted for Golden State. After their 15 championship in 1984, Red Auerbach had secured the pick by trading popular point guard, (and folk hero: "Henderson steals the ball"), Gerald Henderson, to The Seattle Supersonics for their first round pick in the 1986 draft. Not only that, but Thomas believes that he and Fultz would thrive together in Boston. Now that the Celtics officially have that pick, it gives them much more leverage to pull off a deal. "We have to do our best fixing it up appropriately without overdoing it and make sure we try to do our best to keep him in front". On Tuesday, the Celtics found out that their next Brooklyn pick would be the first overall pick in the draft. He shoots 40+ percent from deep, doesn't need the ball while constantly running off screens, and is a smart enough team defender that he can maximize whatever he has left on that end of the floor.
