Isaiah Thomas’ Response To ESPN Analyst Saying Celtics Need PG Upgrade? ‘LOL’


With the Boston Celtics reportedly struggling to trade the No. 3 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Danny Ainge might have to choose from a guard-heavy group of players, which includes Providence College point guard Kris Dunn, when the C’s are on the clock Thursday.

And while point guard might not appear to be a position of need for the Celtics, who already have All-Star Isaiah Thomas, ESPN draft analyst Chad Ford hinted otherwise in his latest mock draft, via UPROXX.

?Dunn seems like less of a fit until you realize that he would be the best pure point guard on the roster — right away,” Ford wrote. “Marcus Smart can play off the ball. Isaiah Thomas, an All-Star, can be dealt. Having an elite distributor, especially one that defends like Dunn does, would be very appealing.?

But one person who certainly doesn’t agree with Ford is Thomas.

Will the Celtics draft Dunn? Maybe.

Would that make a log-jam at guard and lead to a trade of some sort? Probably.

Is this all making Thomas even more motivated? That certainly seems to be the case.
