Celtics Trade No. 1 Overall Draft Pick To 76ers

Celtics Trade No. 1 Overall Draft Pick To 76ers

"They're getting the player they want", he said. The news was announced this past weekend when Markelle Fultz delayed his plans to travel to Boston to meet with the Celtics and instead had to detour his plans to Philly. Fultz is a talented two-way player that gives the 76ers the ballhandler they sorely lacked.

"We're taking the next step in formulating a solid young core of players that will ultimately lead to a successful and sustainable product", Colangelo said. I think, ideally, we would like to not only have max flexibility now but also maintain max flexibility next year when this group has a chance to grow a little bit more and perhaps more ready to add a marquee free agent. "I think they're both terrific talents". The Celtics will get the pick if it falls in slots 2-5 in next summer's National Basketball Association draft lottery.

While Fultz and Simmons are point guards, the Sixers believe they can co-exist - specifically playing Fultz off the ball at shooting guard, allowing Simmons to take advantage of court vision and passing skills and allowing Fultz to showcase his scoring while not running the offense. I'm a pretty good shot blocker for a point guard, so I think helping them with that, everything would pretty much help with that.

"This is certainly a trade that is under the microscope more than others", Ainge said.

National Basketball Association free agents will soon be available on the market, and the Boston Celtics may already have their top targets.

Addressing climate change is an urgent issue
Of those to whom much is given, much is expected, and we Americans are blessed with more prosperity and power than most nations. Grassroots efforts may be a lesser substitute for national leadership and necessary regulation, but they will have to do.

Boston, meanwhile, could potentially own the draft rights to seven first-round selections over the next three seasons. If the Lakers pick falls outside those parameters, the Sixers will either send the better of their or the Sacramento Kings' 2019 draft pick to the Celtics, provided it is not the No. 1 pick.

The trade will likely result in the Sixers drafting standout Washington guard Markelle Fultz, who is widely regarded as the top prospect in the draft. Maybe someone like Josh Jackson, Lonzo Ball, Jonathan Isaac, Jayson Tatum, or De'Aaron Fox.

The Cavs did not know when they drafted Wiggins that LeBron James would return, presenting Cleveland with a win-now scenario. Philadelphia was in a position to select an impact player at three while keeping its future picks to continue building.

Fultz, who just turned 19 on May 29th, averaged 23.2 points, 5.7 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.2 blocks per game as a freshman at Washington. Philadelphia big men Joel Embiid and Dario Saric posted a selfie from the team's locker room with Fultz's name in the background. Ainge also downplayed the suggestion that Boston might have aided what might be its primary Eastern Conference competition down the road and said Boston's front office was unanimous on the decision to move down.
