Washington indicate ensure Markelle Fultz, UCLA indicate ensure Lonzo Ball and Kansas wing Josh Jackson are a accord top-three picks in a draft. It will be engaging to see how a Celtics use a pick, deliberation their offense flows essentially by a ball-dominant ensure in Isaiah Thomas.

The Celtics also perceived a Nets’ 2014 and 2016 first-round picks in that trade. In 2014, Boston took Kentucky ensure James Young No. 17 altogether with a Nets’ pick.
