No. 1 National Basketball Association draft pick Markelle Fultz makes rookie mistake in Inst

In all honesty, the publicity surrounding this whole thing is probably bringing way more attention to Fultz and Tissot than if he did it the right way, so it's all good in the end.

The biggest bombshell sent All-Star guard Jimmy Butler from the Chicago Bulls to the Minnesota Timberwolves, where Butler was reunited with his former coach Tom Thibodeau.

Seems Markelle Fultz was so excited to publish his first sponsored Instagram post after he was drafted Thursday night, he forgot to fill in the template. and left out the Philadelphia 76ers.

Nine-year veteran Lopez appeared posted averages of 20.5 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.7 blocks last season while becoming the longest-tenured player in Nets history.

The 76ers had the No. 1 pick for the second straight year after trading with the Boston Celtics on Monday.

First pick Fultz bolstered the 76ers young core as a 19-year-old playmaker.

"In high school I told my trainer Keith I wanted to be the No. 1 player in the country and the No. 1 draft pick, so it was a goal I set out there, and that's what I was striving for", Fultz said. "Just want to get on the court".

The Celtics used the third pick on Duke's Jayson Tatum. The Sacramento Kings selected De'Aaron Fox to round out the top five.

Fultz was a bit of a late bloomer, failing to make his high school's varsity team his freshman and sophomore years. The run of freshmen bettered the 2014 record of four straight first-year players to start the draft, finally ending when the New York Knicks took French guard Frank Ntilikina at No 8. Brooklyn picked Jarrett Allen out of Texas at No. 22, Toronto picked IN forward OG Anunoby with the 23rd pick and Utah picked Syracuse's Tyler Lydon at No. 24 though he was traded to Denver.

The Lakers sent Russell and Russian center Timofey Mozgov to the Brooklyn Nets for center Brook Lopez and the rights to forward Kyle Kuzma, the 27th pick in the draft, out of Utah. Here are the most notable trades that went down during the draft.
