Celtics trade No. 1 overall draft pick to 76ers

The Sixers and Celtics finalized a 2017 NBA Draft deal on Monday that will land Philadelphia the No. 1 overall pick in the draft-to be used on Markelle Fultz? It was agreed to in principle at that point, with the last holdup being the customary league approval on the terms.

And that means the Celtics could be gearing up for more moves soon.

Mannix said it's possible that Ainge could trade down even further when the picks start coming off of the board on Thursday night, but doesn't think it's likely.

"I think he's supertalented, superexplosive", said Cal guard Jabari Bird of Pac-12 rival Fultz following Monday's Sixers workout. As for the Celtics, they add to the absurd war chest of first round draft picks accumulated (nine draft picks in the first rounds of the next two drafts) which they will nearly certainly be using as an all-out assault on bringing in existing franchise talent.

"We think there's a really good chance the player we'll take at three is the same player we would have taken at one", Ainge said.

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.

It will mark the second straight year that Philadelphia selects first overall.

For now, Boston has seven first-round picks in the next three years. Durant opted out of about $28 million to become a free agent briefly in an effort to help Golden State re-sign sixth-man extraordinaire Andre Iguodala. If the Los Angeles Lakers hold a pick between No. 2 and No. 5 next season, Boston gets that one.

Two months ago, the Prime Minister could have looked forward to Britain having a strong negotiating hand on Day One of Brexit talks; now it is hard to see how her position could be any weaker.

"We felt like we were in the right position to make a deal". "But we're not afraid of that". With Thomas, though, the Celtics didn't necessarily need a point guard - which is the piece Philadelphia apparently wanted most. Fultz and Simmons could play the next 10-to-15 years and potentially lead this franchise back from the abyss of 75 wins over the last four seasons. They have a supremely talented young core, but will be relying on two players, Ben Simmons and presumably Markelle Fultz, who have yet to play a second in the National Basketball Association, plus another, Joel Embiid, with a long history of health issues.

With the news that 2017's college standout Fultz will be plying his trade in Philly next season, the 76ers find themselves with a "Big-3" of their own as Fultz, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid look to create a dynasty.

In his only season with Washington, Fultz averaged 23.2 points and 5.9 assists. He was the top freshman scorer in the country.

In other draft news, Colangelo said he's been working to acquire another first-round choice and "I'm not going to give up efforts because we've moved up to No. 1". If Ainge strays away from conventional opinion once again, and takes a player that many are predicting to go outside of the top five, then he will be all alone on an island, hoping Brad Stevens can turn his pick into the kind of star the other players are being touted as.
