Isaiah Thomas Talked To Prospect Markelle Fultz About Celtics, No. 1 Pick

Outside of the Cleveland Cavaliers (for as long as LeBron James plays like the best player ever), no Eastern Conference teams are set up for better long-term success than the Boston Celtics and Sixers.

Top draft prospect Markelle Fultz went to Washington like the Celtics point guard, so the two actually met before Boston knew where it would be picking in June. They both have said in the past that they could coexist in the same backcourt at the National Basketball Association level.

"It's always, 'He's good...and he's 5'9", Thomas said. "They can keep these young assets, develop a No. 1 pick this year, No. 1 pick next year, and you know try to go out in free agency and get Hayward, which is their No. 1 focus I'm told".

Turkish melee in Washington left injuries, shock
The Voice of America's Turkish news service released footage that shows the Turkish president observing the melee from a vehicle . Video shows people pushing past police to confront a small group of protesters across the street in Sheridan Circle.

Thomas said Fultz inquired about the culture of the Celtics organization, to which Thomas has offered insight into how things work. "He's a good friend of mine". "We understand that he's from Los Angeles, but we're going to draft whoever can help the Celtics regardless of where the players want to play". "But whatever they do".

Thomas, who was the 60th pick in the 2011 draft, was playfully asked whether it would have been better if Boston landed the final pick instead of the first.

"Before the draft past year, Danny [Ainge] was trying to get two picks, not just Jaylen Brown", MacMullan said.
