The Boston Celtics' rumors are heating up just days after the team secured the No. 1 overall pick via the NBA's Draft Lottery.
Thomas and Fultz are both better with the ball in their hands, so there would be diminishing returns on the pairing. Against the Cleveland Cavaliers the Celtics are listed as a prohibitive underdogs in the Eastern Conference Finals. But the latter is sure the two could work together.
Thomas wouldn't divulge the full nature of their conversations but said Fultz is excited for the possibility of being the top pick and playing in Boston. "He's a good friend of mine". "It's gonna take all 15 of us to play together, to defend him". Now, you have a chance with the No. 1 pick to try to acquire Jimmy Butler or Paul George, you go for it.
Donald Trump back to repeating 'no collusion'
He said Yates was appointed by the Obama administration and that she was "a strong supporter of [Hillary] Clinton". She had come here, given a heads-up, told us there were materials and at the same time, we did what we should do.
"We've just got to be more in tune as a group", Thomas said of the defensive adjustments necessary for Game 2.
The early indication is that Boston plans to keep the pick, likely eyeing Fultz as the first selection in the draft.
Thomas usually starts on the wing and gets a double staggered screen that allows him to turn the corner and go downhill and attack the basket.
Feel free to tell me where you agree or disagree in the comments. If Boston trades for a Butler or George type, they would have to give up too much to be able to compete for a title.

"I think there's been a lot of discussion about that", Colangelo said at the team's training facility.
With George missing the All-NBA teams, an extension this year is completely illogical. "With a team like that, the defending champions, you can't let them hit first".
On the flip side, the Celtics could draft Fultz this year and also get a top pick in next year's draft to build for the future while also keeping a contending roster intact.
"You trade this pick, because (Fultz) can not help the Celtics get over the top". And so our intention would be to make the pick unless someone blows us away with an offer. Would the Celtics be better off trading the No. 1 overall pick?
