Lot of rumors that Jackson of Kansas may be there choice instead of Fultz. If so, George would't happen but Hayward might.

My guess is chatter to see if someone offers to move up. I'd bet a lot on them taking Fultz.

I could understand the Lakers going Jackson instead of Lonzo but taking him over Fultz would be a huge mistake. I don't see the C's making that mistake.

They're not. The Celtics have been fawning over Fultz all year according to the vertical podcast. He was the consensus number 1 before they even got the pick. He's going #1 barring something crazy happening.

I think everything is to some extent talk and I still think Celtics trade the pick.

For who though? It'd be an overpay for George and an underpay for Butler.

League sources tell @ZachLowe_NBA and me that the Sixers and Celtics are in serious talks on a trade involving the No. 1 overall pick.

One possibility, per league sources to @ESPN, is a package of a draft picks from Boston, including No. 3 overall , to the Sixers for No. 1

Deal talks are far enough along that Fultz could be on his way to Philadelphia for a meeting Saturday, sources say.

So Fultz goes to Philly and gets hurt and misses a year.

Yeah, they probably want to give him a physical to make sure he is already hurt.

And Philly will give up a future 1st or swap so the Celts will have Brooklyn & Philly's #1 next year

 

Then trade 1 pick for George and the other for Butler. Boomshakalaka

LeBron and Draymond Twitter war more entertaining than some of the games...

 

Funny thing is no matter what the Warriors did to the Cavs this year, it was expected and doesn't over shadow their choke job last year to the same team.

Still think the Curry injury and Green suspension were the deciding factors...with all that, Cavs needed superhuman plats the final couple of minutes to pull Game 7 out.

 

I guess it was more shocking than Cubs' comeback from a similar position. Most don't argue the Indians choked, but that the Cubs simply best them with talent.

Vinyl Goodwill says the Celtics love Jackson, would nab him at 3, and the difference in pay in the 1 vs. 3 slots allows them to max Hayward.

Damn, so the trade actually happened. Don't know much about Fultz outside of draft express highlights.

 

He's really good, but it is weird how bad Washington was with a #1 draft pick. Way worse than Simmons LSU team, though LSU did have more talent.

His nba comp is westbrook. I know, I know. Nuts until he proves himself. The Sixers obviously believe in this kid. We shall see. I've given up on Embiid ever staying healthy. Simmons, Saric and Fultz could be deadly good 3 years from now.

Counterpoint: NBA comps are always terrible.
