Isaiah Thomas on the Cavs: 'They're not the Monstars'

Loser New Orleans Pelicans

COMMENT to SHOVE pic.twitter.com/8wzL4dBSfL - Mike & Mike (@MikeAndMike) May 17, 2017 For the Boston Celtics to make the next leap they must acquire another all-star. Every week it seems that the team becomes better both in the present and for the future, and this week will be one to remember.

But if the Celtics call up and make an offer that includes that No. 1 pick and some of the intriguing players on their roster who could thrive elsewhere, the Pacers will have a tough decision on their hands. That said, one benefit of the Nets signing veterans like Redick is that the Celtics 2018 first-round pick via Brooklyn would be worsened.

The NBA offseason drama already is starting, and it's not even the NBA offseason yet. On Tuesday, the Celtics found out that their next Brooklyn pick would be the first overall pick in the draft.

Boston, by contrast, rebuilt quickly following the 2013 trade and now is in the stunning position of having gained the No. 1 pick a day after making the Eastern Conference finals.

Adjustments will be made, but it's not clear what Boston can do to change the series in a meaningful way. The most obvious action is to draft. "Like, we want to win this series, and that's what we're trying to do. On the Celtics, he could eventually play alongside Thomas in the back court at either point guard or shooting guard". In his post lottery draft board, DePrisco names PG Markelle Fultz as the Boston Celtics top prospect in the National Basketball Association draft. Cleveland had 22 points in the paint in the first, and James scored 15 in the first quarter alone.

In potentially comes Fultz, the top overall pick, who could replace Thomas, the former last pick in the draft. Neither of those players earned All-NBA status this season, which means that there is less of an incentive for them to stay in their current spots. "He asks questions; I answer them", Thomas said.

And if the Celtics don't play any better than they did in the first half of the opener, that could be it. 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.

Obviously if Karl Anthony Towns, Anthony Davis, or the Greek Freak are on the table, you pick up the phone. Someone more probable that the Celtics could trade for could be someone like Kenneth Faried or Thaddeus Young. The bottom line is only one of these teams has LeBron James and the other is in trouble.
