Celtics don't need another guard, although could Fultz be another Michael Jordan getting cut as a high school sophomore from the Varsity at Dematha? He played JV ball and was brought up to the varsity near the end of the season.

Celtics need forwards/center, lst big in RINGERS RANKINGS IS JACKSON FROM KANSAS, BUT HE HAS NOT WORKED OUT WITH THE CELTICS.

Fultz is the type of very, very positive attitude player that fits into the Brad Stevens type of player.

The Celtics are the Eastern Conference's version of the Western Conference's San Antonio Spurs.

Draft. trade for, sign players first with a great attitudes, second with high basketball IQ's ho are coachable, third basketball skills, and 4th athleticism.

Great move with the trade with Philadelphia for all those first round future picks.

I don't think he's done...I think he trades down with Sacramento to move to 5 and 10..will probably be able to get Tatum at 5.

With the NBA Draft taking place on Thursday night, we’ll be doing a lot of looking at the top prospects, projecting their futures and discussing how their schools can replace them. In today’s Starting Five, National Basketball Analyst Eric Bossi takes a personal look at this year’s draft class.

.... Aright, I know there is no way that they are going to go in this order. But here’s a brief look at my top five prospects for this year’s draft.

1. Josh Jackson, Kansas - I believe you win with elite wings in the NBA and he’s the best in this class. I think he could be a new-age Scottie Pippen.

2. Markelle Fultz, Washington - The likely No. 1 pick, he’s a lead guard who can play on or off the ball and has huge upside. Remember, this guy just turned 19.

3. Lonzo Ball - I think he’s going to be everything that Shaun Livingston - who has ended up a solid pro - was going to be if not for a devastating knee injury. Probably the best passer I have ever scouted as a high schooler.

4. Jayson Tatum - There’s probably not another player more ready for the off-the-court and business side of NBA basketball. He’s carried himself like a pro for years, works his tail off and is a skilled combo forward scorer.

5. De’Aaron Fox - Fastest player in the draft with the ball in his hands. His jumper needs improvement but his game changing speed and elastic body could make him a star.

looking ahead.....

Boston Celtics trade No. 1 pick: Five things to know about 2018 NBA Draft Class


After trading the No. 1 pick to the Philadelphia 76ers, the Boston Celtics lost the chance to draft Washington guard Markelle Fultz, but they gained a lot of intriguing options that range from packaging picks for a star to picking future stars in the draft.

The Celtics acquired the No. 3 pick in the 2017 draft, but they also picked up the Los Angeles Lakers' 2018 pick, protected if it doesn't land between 2-5. That, combined with the Brooklyn Nets' pick in 2018, gives the Celtics a pair of potentially high selections in a fascinating draft.

We'll have much more after the 2017 draft on Thursday, but for now, here are five things to know about the 2018 class.

1. Superstar prospects are available.

Stevens, Ainge Enthralled by Tatum’s Potential

...Finally, Stevens blinked out of his trance as the reel faded out.

“OK,” he stated to no one in particular. “Here we go.”

Stevens, along with president of basketball operations Danny Ainge and the rest of the Celtics basketball ops staff, have become enamored by Tatum’s craft over the last several months. Clearly, observing the abilities of the talented wing has yet to get old.

“He’s a really skilled player, a really talented scorer,” Stevens later told the media. “He’s a great kid, has great work ethic. We’re excited to have him aboard.”

Later in the Draft, the Celtics welcomed aboard Southern Methodist forward Semi Ojeleye (37th overall), Arizona guard Kadeem Allen (53rd overall) and Cal-Berkeley guard Jabari Bird (56th overall).

Tatum, at No. 3, of course was the premier haul of the draft for Boston. The 6-foot-8, 205-pound St. Louis native was the star of the Duke men’s basketball this past winter and spring. During his lone collegiate season, he averaged 16.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.1 blocks per game, all while leading the Blue Devils to a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

The reason Ainge can't finish and close a deal is that he is loathed by his colleagues in the NBA...they despise him and hate dealing with him....he is the arrogant a$$hole I pegged him as years ago...always thinks he is the smartest guy in the room ( like speed in that regard and disparaged for the same reason ) ....this will never change...

Jason Tatum is pretty good, but Ainge with a treasure chest of assets couldn't close deals for truly transformative players.....

No Pozingas
No Butler
No George

Ainge could have done far more than Tatum, but couldn't get it done...

Free agency awaits ....never under estimate Ainge's ability to screw it up....

Timberwolves got Butler from Chicago for a guy coming off ACL, a rookie who had a terrible first year, and a draft pick.....

And still Ainge couldn't match that....the arrogant a$$hole should be too ashamed to be seen in public....to get out bid by dog ass Minnesota when The Arrogant A$$hole had three times the chips to play with.....Thinodeau made Ainge look brain dead.....bottom line is every GM knows Ainge is the biggest douchebag in basketball....not one wants to deal with him....
