There seems to be two different camps of the trading Fultz thinking. I assume it has to be related to how good you think he'll be (vs his peers).

Feel free to say how you voted and where you stand on trading him away

I went with lots of all star games. I'm ok with trading if it's a Godfather thing.

I rate the other top 3 guys as occasional all star games.

I agree Fultz is probably the only one that can get close to the top level or two

If Ainge trades him it's clear he sees him more as occasional all star and sees the other players as possible occasional all stars

not good enough for the Celtics to pick him at #1

but good enough to help Danny fleece the 76ers  ;D

Too good to trade.

You trade down and acquire assets when you're at picks 3-10 for the lotto and you need as many chances to strike gold as possible. Think Kings, Knicks, Nets.

You don't do it when you need one guy who is a sure thing. Regardless of position.

You think if a Lebron or Curry clone was available at the #1 pick and they had the pick, Cleveland or GS would pass on them?
The Nets will finish with the worst record and the Celtics will end up with the 4th pick.

I admit coming out of college is Fultz is far better than Harden and maybe better than Westbrook. I don't think I can say that about J Jackson in the same way

I'm beginning to wonder if Ainge has Fultz rated 4th

I put Wall range. Could easily see him entering the competing for MVP range and can't imagine him lower than an above average starter.

Assuming Danny does not think good enough not to trade and he definitely does not believe he has potential to be like any of the best top picks of all time in the NBA.

CP3 was top 6 in MVP voting 6 times.

Yes. He's a sure-fire first ballot HOF player and could very well end up being regarded as better than either Harden or Westbrook.

Also Mully made 5 straight All-Star games and 4 straight All-NBA teams.

Both of them should be a category higher than they are.
