76ers get No. 1 pick from Celtics, chance to draft Fultz


"They're getting the player they want", Ainge said, referring to the 76ers.

Markelle Fultz may have felt like he belonged in Boston. To keep up with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Celtics need a proven star more than they need a player from the current draft class.

"We're taking the next step in formulating a solid young core of players that will ultimately lead to a successful and sustainable product", Colangelo said.

In 2018, when the Warriors' super-team could be undone by Kevin Durant's (possible next) free agency and when LeBron James could take his talents elsewhere, the Celtics could be sitting there with a bevy of picks and talent as the path opens for another team to challenge for the championship.

"We think there's a really good chance the player we'll take at 3 is the player we would have taken at 1", Ainge said Monday.

The Celtics have been linked with either Josh Jackson of Kansas or Jayson Tatum of Duke at No. 3, although multiple media outlets reported the team may be willing to deal the pick. The Celtics will acquire the 2018 Lakers pick the Sixers own if it falls between No. 2 and 5.

The Celtics are expected to be very much a part of the conversation of moving George, but they might be hampered by his infatuation with the Los Angeles Lakers. Right now, Hayward appears to be the more likely option with recent reports from league executives suggesting a trade for Butler is "more on speculation than reality". The Celtics would take whichever one is more favorable.

Regardless of what moves they eventually decide to make, the trade between Boston and Philly will certainly solidify a long-standing rivalry to return back to its competitive days.

The 6-foot-8, 205-pound forward most likely will be available to the Celtics at No. 3, their new National Basketball Association draft position after the trade with the Philadelphia 76ers was finalized. Despite that protection on his new future asset, Danny Ainge is pleased with his swap and said it was a unanimous decision in the Boston front office. That's when the Orlando Magic traded the No. 1 pick to the Golden State Warriors for the No. 3 pick and three future first-rounders.

Fultz, who just turned 19 on May 29th, averaged 23.2 points, 5.7 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.2 blocks per game as a freshman at Washington. "I can't wait for the draft on Thursday and continue to move forward".

Most expect the Sixers to take Washington guard Markelle Fultz first overall and pair him with Ben Simmons, who missed what would have been his rookie season with a foot injury after going No. 1 past year. The Sixers are reportedly going after University of Washington point guard Markelle Fultz, who has drawn comparisons to All-Star Russell Westbrook.
