1 overall draft pick to 76ers

The front office can use one of their multiple future first-round picks they have from Miami. Fultz and current 76ers players appeared to enjoy each other's company last weekend when the draft prospect came to Philadelphia to work out for the team. The Celtics will then receive either the 76ers' 2019 first-round pick or the Sacramento Kings' 2019 pick, whichever is more favorable to Boston.

"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. "So I think it's a good deal for both teams". These seven picks, or the players they produce, allow Boston to acquire proven All-Star talent.

Lakers looking to add another first-round draft pick, sources say: ESPN: Los Angeles now holds the second and 28th picks in this year's draft.

Team Africa will be captained by the Los Angeles Lakers' Luol Deng, a two-time NBA All-Star who is from the South Sudan, and the Atlanta Hawks' Thabo Sefolosha, an 11-year NBA veteran whose father was born in South Africa.

"We are very, very excited about what we've been able to accomplish the last few days getting this trade done with Philadelphia", Ainge said.

What their trade partner has up his sleeve is more muddled.

With the move, the Celtics and Ainge move down two spots in this year's draft while also picking up another likely lottery pick in the near future. His decision to join another team has forced the Pacers to aggressively enter trade negotiations in hopes of receiving a return investment on their 2010 draft pick. While fans wanted to see Isaiah Thomas and Markelle Fultz share the court in Boston, the trade just made more sense.

The rumored deal between the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers to swap positions in Thursday night's National Basketball Association draft is going down, which means we're all going to have to hit "reset" on those mock drafts once again.

It would be the second straight year Ainge has selected an athletic swingman with shaky handles and a developing jump shot at No. 3. Philadelphia was in a position to select an impact player at three while keeping its future picks to continue building. Scouts have noted concerns with Tatum's off-the-ball play, along with his streaky shooting and commitment to defense, but he averaged 16.8 points and 7.3 rebounds per game while holding his own against older players during his lone season with the Blue Devils. "With the certainty of No. 1, we know we control our circumstances".

Sixers big man Joel Embiid tweeted a photo of himself with Fultz, Simmons and Robert Covington along with the caption: "This should be legendary if it happens".

Fultz, the versatile Washington guard who worked out for the Sixers on Saturday evening, is the consensus top player and clearly the best fit in Brett Brown's system.
