Discussing NBA Draft Lottery fallout with Heart and Hustle

CELTICS: When Boston sent Pierce and Garnett to Brooklyn as part of a draft-night trade in 2013, the Celtics not only acquired the Nets' first-round picks in 2014, 2016 and 2018, but also the right to swap first-round selections in 2017. But for all those committed to drafting Fultz, dangling that pick and gauging its value on the trade market should give everyone a pretty good sense as to just how good the kid is.

"And look what I leave behind for the Celts on my way out (No. 1) pick", Pierce wrote on Twitter.

"You're a 50-win team, you're the No. 1 seed". The 76ers were also banking on their recent tank strategy to pay off with another top pick, while the Sacramento Kings were looking at 2 picks inside the top 10 to start rebuilding post-Boogie.

But I don't want to trade Thomas.

As such, especially if Boston holds their own against Cleveland in the upcoming series, they might feel it necessary to trade one or both of their highly sought after picks in order to net a current star that would help push them to the next level - a level that hypothetically would allow them to compete with LeBron James and potentially win an NBA Championship.

Whatever the Celtics do, it's a great decision to have to make. "I don't think it's a matter of which pick we got, anybody we're going to get is going to add something", 76ers center Joel Embiid said.
