On the other hand, Thomas was infamously selected by the Sacramento Kings with the No. 60 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, which is notably the last pick in the entire event.

With Hayward not voted to the All-NBA team, he's not eligible for a designated-veteran-player extension from the Utah Jazz, which would've put him in line for a six-year, $224 super-max deal. The same goes for Indiana's Paul George, a player that the rebuilding Lakers seem to believe they can land in 2018, either via a trade or as a free agent.

"You trade this pick, because he can not help the Celtics get over the top", Pierce said. "If they want to talk to me now, it just went up to $3 billion". For now plan on going hard at Hayward to play the small forward role and wait till next year to sign Isaiah.

Prospect like Nader or Yabu? Who knows what Ainge will do, but all I know is there will be fireworks in Boston this summer no matter what happens.
