Boston Celtics Rumor: Trade With Philly For No.1 Pick Done

Boston Celtics Roster

The order in which these one-and-done collegiate players will be selected, however, remains less than certain. For example, if the 76ers were higher on UCLA's Lonzo Ball than Fultz, perhaps they would want to jump to No. 1 to take Ball before the Lakers, who are heavily rumored to be interested in Ball. The executives spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the draft.

As for how he'd fit in with the Sixers, Fultz believes his skill-set is just what this team needs to take the next step. Some teams are sending out smoke signals.

Rumors are starting to spread about possible trades taking place in the NBA Draft. The guard from the University of Washington was rumored to be working out Saturday for the 76ers according to a report in the Boston Herald.

The projected No. 1 pick in Thursday's National Basketball Association draft showed up for a workout at the Philadelphia 76ers training complex wearing a black 76ers baseball cap.

Well, according to David Aldridge, the two sides have come to an agreement and the trade will become official on Monday.

In this case, Ainge can ill afford to be incorrect: Passing on Fultz in favor of keeping Smart, Rozier or perhaps even Thomas won't look very good if Fultz reaches some of the ceilings projected onto him before the draft.

So Danny Ainge drafts De'Aaron Fox or Josh Jackson 3rd this year, signs Gordon Hayward this offseason, and then trades for Anthony Davis at the deadline.

"Those five guys have everything", said the executive, whose team has a late lottery pick.

Another is that they think they know who the best player in the draft is...and it isn't Markelle Fultz.

They have the ammunition to chase Indiana Pacers forward Paul George or Chicago Bulls forward Jimmy Butler, and can get in the mix next month for free agents such as Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward and Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin. He averaged 22.4 points, 7.0 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game.

"We said we need another one", Lacob told a crowd of hundreds of thousands at the rally for the Warriors, who won their second championship in three years. (He) may be "the best one" (draft prospect) they've seen.

The Lakers worked out Ball twice, and saw Jackson work out in Sacramento and at the team's practice facility in El Segundo.
