Sixers about to acquire No. 1 overall pick

19 Juin, 2017, 18:14 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

While the majority of the Celtics' offseason previously revolved around former Washington guard Markelle Fultz, Boston must now turn their attention toward another crop of players, as the former Huskies standout is nearly certainly coming off the board at No. 1 overall.

In the proposed deal, Boston would acquire Philadelphia's No. 3 overall pick in 2017 in a package that includes a future first from the 76ers, sources said. The Sixers had eyes wide open Saturday and Embiid was one of the more enthusiastic observers at Fultz's workout.

Boston has been linked to Jimmy Butler for over a year, an almost acquired him at the trade deadline before talks between the two sides broke down.

The deal was completed Saturday night when University of Washington point guard Markelle Fultz passed his physical at the 76ers training facility in Camden, New Jersey. Fultz reportedly looked good in his workout but did not shoot well missing 14 of the 18 three pointers he took.

Fultz is apparently going to get taken one spot better. I don't really pay attention to everything that's going on.

"I think the tools that I have to be a defensive player will help them get out in transition", he said. "Whatever happens, I'm looking forward to taking my talents wherever I go".

Over the weekend, the Boston Celtics made a blockbuster trade where they agreed to trade the number one pick to Philadelphia in exchange for the number three pick this year and some protected future first rounders. In 2014, he was playing junior varsity basketball in high school. They also used a sixth-round pick (No. 214 overall) to select defensive tackle, Elijah Qualls. In Philadelphia, he'll be roughly a 2½-hour drive from his hometown of Upper Marlboro, Md.

"[The last few days have] been insane, man", Fultz said.

The NBA Draft is just a few weeks away, but the Celtics still have plenty of time to make a deal with their abundance of picks for something bigger. It's been a blessing.

"Embiid, he and I have been talking before when I was in college", Fultz said.

Fultz averaged 23.2 points, 5.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds per game during his freshman season at Washington.

Only Kevin Durant for Texas in 2006-07 and Michael Beasley for Kansas State in 2007-08 were better and they were No. 2 picks in their respective draft classes. Durant and Beasley were both No. 2 picks.
