76ers Get No. 1 Pick From Celtics

76ers Get No. 1 Pick From Celtics

The Boston Celtics made the trade of the No.1 overall pick to the Philadelphia 76er's official on Monday. "It's a good deal for both teams". However, Celtics president Danny Ainge still believes they will get the player they would have selected at number one. "That's our goal. That's where we want to be". “You look at the top end of the draft and I think theres a chance that theres going to be a lot of very good players, but it also runs deep into the late first round. It has been rumored that Ainge is really interested in drafting Josh Jackson from Kansas University, but he still could also trade the pick for an established star for a team that needs rebuilding.

"Well it's never easy negotiating with Boston because they're smart guys - and I'm talking about [Celtics assistant general manager] Mike Zarren and not Danny Ainge, by the way", Colangelo said. This only confirmed earlier rumors that Lonzo was looking forward to playing alongside Ben Simmons, the No. 1 pick in the 2016 draft. Ainge said it was "possible" that Boston could make another deal before the draft, but described the swap as "a jump-start" for the Celtics. "History suggests that No. 1 has the greatest odds of producing franchise-level talent and we are confident that this year's draft class has that very potential". Markelle Fultz?first overall, traded the No. 3 overall pick and a future first-round pick to the Celtics.

Boston will receive the 2018 first-round pick of the Los Angeles Lakers - if that selection falls between the No 2 to No 5 range.

The 76ers, selecting first for the second straight year, should take Fultz before Magic Johnson takes Ball with the Lakers again in the No. 2 spot, which is exactly what the UCLA guard and his father, LaVar, want. "We think the 76ers obviously wanted this No. 1 pick".

Durant reportedly plans to take about $4 million less than the maximum he is eligible for as a 10-year veteran, giving Golden State flexibility with its cap space. The Sixers worked Fultz out on Saturday night as talks with the Celtics got to the final stages.

Boston is sending the first-overall pick to the Sixers for their third-overall pick and a future first rounder.

The 19-year-old Fultz will join a line-up of young talent including 20-year-old Simmons, centres Joel Embiid and Jahlil Okafor, the No.3 picks in 2014 and 2015 respectively, plus Croatian forward Dario Saric. He shot 47.6 percent, averaged along with 5.9 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 1.6 steals over 25 games during his freshman season with the Huskies, who posted a 9-22 record. "This pick provides us a tremendous opportunity to add another foundational player to our promising core".
