C's Thomas reaches out to possible No. 1 Fultz

In exchange, Boston received Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks, Kris Joseph, Keith Bogans and three first round draft picks (2014, 2016 and 2018). [Image by Christian Petersen/Getty Images] As CSN-New England reported, Grousbeck discussed his stance on keeping that top pick rather than putting together a trade for a more established and costlier current star. "Not one man can do that".

Isaiah Thomas' huge 2016-2017 season with the Celitcs nearly never was, according to Jackie MacMullan. With that trade, as most may remember, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry went to Brooklyn for some role players and Brooklyn's first round draft picks for four of the next five seasons. There are those Celtics fans who would much rather see the team go after a guy who can help the team right now, rather than a younger talent who needs some time to develop. This is far-fetched because the Celtics truly value Thomas. High praise for someone who just six years ago was considered nothing but an afterthought.

Isaiah Thomas had 17 points in a Game 1 loss to the Cavs. If you compare his season averages to Allen Iverson's 2000-01 MVP season, the numbers are remarkably similar.

Thomas went on to say that he's been the shortest player on every team he's ever been on. You want to get over the top.

In addition, Thomas has already cemented himself as one of the league's premier closers. IT4 is that team's heart but he's also a 2018 free agent Danny Ainge really might not want to commit long-term money to. Although the Celtics got the No. 1 seed this year, Cleveland absolutely destroyed them Wednesday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

After watching video of Game 1 with the team, it's not all that surprising that Celtics head coach Brad Stevens found plenty of areas in which his team has left room for improvement prior to tonight's game. Markelle Fultz, Malik Monk, Jaylen Brown, next year's 1st round pick, and Myles Turner.

"You trade this pick, because (Fultz) can not help the Celtics get over the top". With Fultz potentially heading to Bahhhston after the Celtics get swept by LeBron, your first thought is what that would mean for Isaiah Thomas.
