    The lottery is tonight and of course the #1 pick is the preferred outcome.

    If it were me ... take Fulz ... visions of him and Jaylen Brown for the next 6-8 years is way too tempting for me.

    Go hard Greg Monroe or Nerlens Noel in the off season for center ... back that up with Zizic ...
    moves Horford to PF and he shares that with Olynyk. Keep the current guard rotation in tack.

    Can Zeller - Crowder - Amir Johnson - Gerald Green - Jerebko - Young
    Absolutely do not give up draft picks under any other scenario.

    That sounds good to me. Step #1: ACCOMPLISHED

    I don't see anyway they don't go with Fultz. Ball would be a terrible pick.

    Replace Johnson with Monroe
    Draft Fultz

    Thomas is fun to watch, but not paying max contract to him....move him for offensive minded player at another position......

    G - Fultz, Bradley, Smart, Rozier
    C/F - Brown,Horford,Munroe,Olynyk,Crowder(upgrade?)

    Been watching and reading a lot:

    - Fultz. Quiet hardworking person. Real close with his mom. Good student. Again a quiet guy. Put up huge stats, amazing stats. Excellent scorer. Defense isn't good yet. Team was real bad, 7-21 and Fultz didn't make them better. I get worried when I hear the comparisons to James Harden.
    - Lonzo Ball. I hate his dad. But the more I see of this kid I like it. Elite BBall IQ and passing. Makes his teammates better. UCLA was 117th the year before him and with Lonzo became the #1 offense in the country. The kid is the next Jason Kidd but already has a 3pt shot, who cares if it looks funky. I think he's going to be a star.
    - DeAaron Fox. Great 2way PG, possibly a more athletic Mike Conley.

    Doubtful that it would happen, but I would love to see Ball & his dad not be drafted by the Fakers (& their allies at league HQ), just to see what kind of shitstorm would follow.

    RE Lonzo. Great, he can pass players open so they can brick their wide open shots. The Celtics needs a SCORER far more than they need a passer. As for Ball's three point shot, it looks funky because he's releasing it practically at chest level. We'll see how far he gets with that at the next level.

    Fox is beyond raw. Not to mention so light he'd blow away in a strong breeze. He's years away from contributing.
