What does Sixers' Markelle Fultz think of comparisons to Rockets' James Harden?

Markelle Fultz walks on stage with NBA commissioner Adam Silver after being drafted first overall by the Philadelphia 76ers

A year after almost half the draft - a record 27 of the 60 picks - were worldwide players, French guard Frank Ntilikina and Finnish forward Lauri Markkanen, who played a year at Arizona, are two of the top global players. And they selected two power forwards, Jonah Bolden and Mathias Lessort, in the second round. They later traded the rights to Collins to the Trail Blazers for North Carolina's Justin Jackson (selected with the No. 15 pick) and the 20th pick. Almost every team in the lottery landed a potential foundational star, and the three or four teams at the end of the lottery still ought to get solid National Basketball Association starters.

Pasecniks, 21, has been playing pro ball in Spain and he's expected to play there next season.

"That morning I woke up, I didn't know where I was going", Fultz said. In his only season in college, Jackson averaged 16.3 points and 7.4 rebounds.

Markkanen was asked about potentially playing with or replacing Porzingis, who team president Phil Jackson told MSG Network on Wednesday the Knicks are taking calls about after he left NY without attending his exit interview. You want them feeling like that. They want to share the ball. "Get stronger and that's what I'm going to do in [the next] couple months".

He joins a young squad that features Australian forward Ben Simmons, another top draft pick who missed all of last season with a foot injury; Jahlil Okafor and 2017 National Basketball Association rookie of the year finalists Joel Embiid and Dario Saric.

"I've always believed what I can do", Bolden said in a conference call, as reported by Cammerato.

"And you circle back, if it's delivered, you got to own it, you got to practice like that, you got to act like that, you got to be that".

For No.1 pick Markelle Fultz though, it's a day he's dreamed about since telling 1 NEWS past year. One of the things I like about him is, he played in a league that has recently produced Dario Saric, Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic.

Thibodeau has enough young players in Minnesota and wanted a veteran like he had during his successful run coaching the Bulls.

"He is a running, athletic, jumping, offensive rebounding animal". It's loaded with big men in the way this year's draft was loaded with point guards. Size and athleticism, high energy, under-skilled. "I really think that we can be a [playoff team]".

The 19-year-old, a Washington freshman point guard, took to his Instagram account to make the announcement, but left his followers confused.
