Boston Celtics agree to trade top pick to Philadelphia 76ers

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Boston Celtics will be sending the pick to the Philadelphia 76ers. At 6-4, Fultz can play either backcourt position and can make plays for himself as well as others. I don't think so.

On the surface it doesn't generally make sense to trade the first pick in the draft as teams usually believe that they are going to be selecting a sure-fire good player, if not a regular All-Star.

"I saw the team still fighting hard", Fultz said of his last glimpse of the Sixers.

Fultz ended his freshman season averaging 23.2 points, 5.8 assists, 5.6 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks per game. Fultz was late for the workout because he got stuck in traffic. So 76ers big man Joel Embiid, with teammate Dario Saric by his side, chose to have a little fun and post a selfie in front of a locker that included Fultz's name plate.

The Washington point guard is extremely versatile.

The Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers made a move Saturday that could affect the futures of both teams, having agreed in principle to trade picks in the NBA Draft. Former Washington standout Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball of the UCLA Bruins are not expected to go in the top five of the 2017 NBA Draft. Yes, to a lot of people "The Process" is a state of mind but to many inside the franchise it is a period of time known for collecting draft picks and freeing up cap space for the future.

In May, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Lowry was "interested" in playing for the Sixers and the front office was planning to offer him a "lucrative contract" in the offseason. Barely three years later, he's nearly certainly going to become the NBA's No. 1 pick.

The 76ers have a top-three pick for the fourth straight year: No. 3 Joel Embiid in 2014; No. 3 Jahlil Okafor in 2015; and Simmons in 2016.

Fultz is apparently going to get taken one spot better. Fultz will provide much-needed scoring on the perimeter while Embiid, Simmons, and Saric will provide unbelievable length in the frontcourt.

"Embiid, he and I have been talking before when I was in college", Fultz said.

Boston will thus have at least two potential lottery picks in 2018-the Celtics already have Brooklyn's unprotected first-round pick next year-along with 2019 first-rounders from the Clippers and Memphis.
