Yep it’s official, the Boston Celtics will trade the number one overall pick to the Philadelphia 76ers. Let me repeat that….. the Boston Celtics will trade the number one overall pick to the Philadelphia 76ers. Wow. I am in utter shock that it actually happened. I shouldn’t be due to all the rumors the past few days but it yet here we are. Here is what the Celtics got in return.
So the Celtics move down to 3 and they pass up on Markelle Fultz. I don’t like it. I think this is a mistake to pass up on Fultz. That is just my gut reaction. Fultz seems like a good, hardworking kid WHO WANTS TO COME HERE!!!!! He’s got the right attitude and he’s got a great connection with star Isaiah Thomas. So why trade him? Maybe because something bigger is at work. Danny Ainge knows something that we don’t know, that is the only logical thing I can think of. He is loading up to make a major trade. Whether it’s for Jimmy Butler, Paul George, or dare I say Anthony Davis? Maybe, but once again the Celtics will not draft 1st overall. And it’s got me like this.
