Isaiah Thomas Talked To Prospect Markelle Fultz About Celtics, No. 1 Pick

On a NBA Draft Lottery reaction podcast with Mark Titus, The Ringer's Bill Simmons threw out the idea of the Celtics dealing the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft-expected to be Washington's Markelle Fultz-to the Sixers.

Of course, the question that always comes up when you talk about the possibility of the Celtics picking Fultz is how the point guard would fit in a backcourt that's already run by Thomas. Not only that, but Thomas believes that he and Fultz would thrive together in Boston.

Yes, the Celtics remain in the final four of the playoffs this season - pending three more LeBron tours de force - but their big plans are for next season, when they are poised to complete a painstaking rebuild with two more marquee additions.

"He's excited", Thomas said, via ESPN.

"I still wonder if it makes sense for Philly to try to move up to one", Simmons said. "We understand that he's from Los Angeles, but we're going to draft whoever can help the Celtics regardless of where the players want to play". "If not, we'll go from there". "I mean, whatever happens, happens".

"The Boston Celtics star point guard, who stands at a towering 5'9" (and that's being generous), was asked by Good Morning America's T.J. Holmes how his career would be different with an extra seven inches.
