Celtics to trade No. 1 Pick to 76ers

Lucia Summers | 20 June, 2017, 01:42

The trade is likely to be finalized Monday.

It means that the 76ers will have Ben Simmons and this year's first overall pick on the court next year along with Joel Embiid, 2014's third overall pick too provided they all remain healthy. The Sixers are expected to use the first overall pick on Washington freshman Markelle Fultz.

However, Fultz is the major consensus No. 1 overall pick, and since the Los Angeles hold the No. 2 draft pick, the ball club would likely have trade up to the top spot to acquire him. That pick could be a protected pick in 2021.

That being said, Boston will look to draft another young rookie prospect third overall this upcoming Thursday. The workout in Philadelphia occurred instead of a previously scheduled meeting with the Celtics.

Second, the fact that the Sixers will only part with one of the two future first rounders from the Kings and Lakers is better still news. "I'm truly blessed to be in this position". "He's a cool guy". He's giving me tips and pointers and he's pretty amusing, so when I saw that it was pretty cool and pretty amusing.

We are very honest about that. "I was just trying to be smooth, hit my marks, not make mistakes, not let Chase get close to me". While it was the same 1-2 finish as far as driver names, this victory had a much different vibe than the one last August.

"It's pretty special I got to do it in front of my family on Father's Day in LA", said Taurasi, who finished with 19 points. There was an overflow of reporters and photographers taking pictures as Fultz walked into the building at 7:08 p.m. wearing a black Sixers cap. In short: Barring a surprise trade for the No. 3 pick involving a player like Jimmy Butler, Boston's draft night decision will come down to Jackson and Tatum. With both of these teams expected to be at the bottom of the barrel for the next few years, the Celtics can continue drafting high in the lottery, even if they continue their recent success of making the playoffs and winning 50+ games.

In his only season with Washington, the 6-foot-5, 186-pound Fultz averaged 23.2 points and 5.9 assists.

One Celtics fan, filled with happiness about the team possibly grabbing Fultz with the top pick, got a custom Celtics jersey made with Fultz's name on the back. The Aussie missed all of last season with a foot injury.

In the end, events began to unravel for Fultz to Boston when he did not have a great workout there. It was rumored yesterday that the team was looking to move up to the number one pick in a package that would have included Julius Randle.
