Isaiah Thomas named to All-NBA Second Team

Isaiah Thomas said he's talked with Markelle Fultz since Boston landed the first overall pick in Tuesday's draft lottery.

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.

Thomas and Fultz are both better with the ball in their hands, so there would be diminishing returns on the pairing. If you don't know what I'm talking about.

"He's a good friend of mine", Thomas said of the fellow University of Washington product, according to ESPN. "It's gonna take all 15 of us to play together, to defend him". With this series, we gotta go out and show the world.

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. But the 2018 draft class should be significantly weaker than 2017's, although getting the No. 1 pick might mean getting Missouri signee and stud small forward Michael Porter Jr, who could fit even better with the Celtics' roster than Fultz. They have the cap space to go out and pay him what's going to be market value.

"I hate to see Boston wind up with that pick being in our division, but that's what we're dealing with", he said. Fultz is far and away the best shooter in this year's draft, but he will likely become glued to the bench as the Celtics look to contend.

"Before the draft a year ago, Danny [Ainge] was trying to get two picks, not just Jaylen Brown", MacMullan said.

DeMatha Catholic (Hyattsville, Md.) is historically one of the more prolific basketball powers in the country, and Mike Jones has been at the program's helm for the last 15 years. 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. That said, one benefit of the Nets signing veterans like Redick is that the Celtics 2018 first-round pick via Brooklyn would be worsened. "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".
