Markelle Fultz Considered 'Clear Choice' For Celtics If They Keep No. 1
The Boston Celtics won the lottery and made their potential trade offers more valuable since they control the draft.
The Celtics had interest in trading for either Paul George or Jimmy Butler at the deadline and can revisit those discussions in June.
"Fultz is the clear choice" for the Celtics if they decide to keep the pick, according to Chad Ford.
The Celtics will also own the Brooklyn Nets' unprotected first rounder in 2018.
Fultz spoke again about the tantalizing prospects of forming a backcourt with Isaiah in Boston:
“Me and Isaiah Thomas would be a great backcourt,” said Fultz. “I think the opportunity that would be there would be amazing, just for him to play off the ball, where I think he’s better at it, or him to play on the ball and I can play off the ball. I think the chemistry would be amazing.” (via CSNNE)
