Paul Pierce wants the Celtics to trade the No. 1 draft pick

Paul Pierce wants the Celtics to trade the No. 1 draft pick

Boston Celtics?point guard Isaiah Thomas said his team can not overreact to Wednesday's lopsided loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.

George's tweet was a response to another tweet from Bleacher Report, which linked to an article about how Paul Pierce thinks the Celtics should trade the no. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Thomas and Fultz are both better with the ball in their hands, so there would be diminishing returns on the pairing. We want to let everybody in this world know that we're for real, and we're one of the top teams in the National Basketball Association, and with this series we've got to go out and show the world because like everybody knows, everybody is counting us out. But the latter is sure the two could work together.

Critics will point to Thomas' diminutive stature and the defensive deficiencies it produces, and they're not entirely wrong.

"He's a good friend of mine", Thomas said of the fellow University of Washington product, according to ESPN. We figured if he played on the JV level, with some really good players, he would have the opportunity to really grow into a leadership role.

The 2017 NBA Draft order is set so we can now get down to the business of guessing who goes where and speculate about who will be looking to trade up, out or down.

The Celtics haven't revealed much about their draft plans - it's only been three days after all - so we'll just have to wait and see if there'll be an all-Husky backcourt in Boston in the near future. The team held onto their high draft pick in last year's draft and opted for California's Jaylen Brown at the No. 3 spot, while also signing free agent Al Horford to the team from Atlanta.

"I believe in these guys", Thomas told reporters Thursday. They don't have to give assets up to go and try to trade for him. One of their biggest issues all season has been rebounding, so they should be looking for rebounders that can be traded for and are not too expensive. I think the chemistry would be unbelievable. However, Boston fans have already seen it...31 years ago in the summer of 1986. A late five-game winning streak by his young team had damaged its odds by falling behind Phoenix for the second-worst record in the league.

If the Celtics don't want to draft, can they go out and trade it?

Thomas did just that when he arrived in Boston and he continues to lead the Celtics. Presumably, Tuesday won't even represent the final lottery insult, given that, as mentioned, the Celtics own Brooklyn's 2018 first-round pick. J.J. Redick brings all of those things and if they lose him in L.A., it's more about his shooting that the kind of player he's become. Obviously, with the talent he had, we did not want to have him basically playing sparse minutes on the varsity level.

Current considerations for this offseason have swayed towards the idea of either trading Isaiah Thomas or the No. 1 overall pick for a star like George or Butler. Two players come to mind in that range, PF Jonathan Isaac from Florida State and SG Malik Monk from Kentucky.
