1 pick Fultz to turn 76ers into winners

25 Juin, 2017, 15:00 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

"Please dunk on him so hard that his daddy runs on the court to save him", Embiid tweeted in reference to Ball's father, LaVar, who does most of the talking off the court for his son.

"Joel will come out and [say] something similar", Sixers head coach Brett Brown said.

If the two sides can't reach a deal by October 31 (the deadline), Embiid will play out this season then be a restricted free agent next season. Without an extension, Embiid is due to make $6.1 million this year.

Simmons missed his rookie season with a broken right foot.

"I figured out I had a chance to make it there (the NBA) probably (in) my 11th grade", he said. Markelle said he "got some sleep".

Dallas relied on undrafted rookie Yogi Ferrell and veteran JJ Barea at the point guard a year ago, and Smith is an upgrade on both in the starting spot.

Boston Celtics will have the third pick, followed by the Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings, Orlando Magic and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

No worries, for now. No other USA university player averaged 14 points with six rebounds and six assists a game as well. He blocks shots, hits 3s and doesn't do too much else, but that was enough to turn him from forgotten bench-warmer to the No. 17 overall pick for the Milwaukee Bucks.

He thought it would be successful then, and it did indeed work, and now he's gone down the same track. The larger squad should keep to a minimum the number of players having to play twice in a week.


"We are very excited and thrilled about having a 5-prospect (in Pasecniks who is) a potential piece to what we will fit into as part of this basketball team", Colangelo said.

— where he proclaimed the new nickname was FEDS: Fultz, Embiid, Dario, Simmons.

"Those young guys need nurturing and they need veteran leadership".

This came up because Brown long ago said he meant to use Ben Simmons, a 6-10 forward with an unselfish bent, at the point this season - an interesting experiment, not only because Simmons missed his entire rookie year with a broken foot but also because other responsibilities would have to be divvied up differently than they are on most teams. Teams lock up their stars at this point, and Embiid is that - he was dominant in the 31 games he played. "And trying to identify veterans that have the ability to nurture and help those three, especially, is one of the main priorities". As for fans, they were still buzzing.

If the Sixers wait and see, the only way that they'd likely be able to secure Embiid's talent for the long haul is by signing him to a max extension. From community college to the league's best franchise over the past two decades in just two years - that's not bad. Scouts also rave Ojeleye as a great defender and was a projected first round pick before sliding.

And considering the pathetic situation Philadelphia sports is in these days, I think the excitement for the Sixers is refreshing.

Below are the picks from the second round.
