76ers, Celtics agree on trade for No. 1 pick

The Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers have agreed in principle on a trade that would give the 76ers the top pick in the 2017 National Basketball Association entry draft, United States media reported Saturday.

"I really don't pay a lot of attention to it", Fultz said. "I'm big on that".

The Sixers move up and will surely select Washington point guard Markelle Fultz with the top pick, the Celtics get the No. 3 pick and a future first-rounder, either via the Los Angeles Lakers next summer, or Sacramento in 2019. However, since the official announcement of the Celtics trade with the 76ers cannot be made until Monday, when the National Basketball Association offices are open, some of the parameters of the deal can be changed.

In 2015-16, the Sixers won 10 games and used Ben Simmons with the top overall pick. Boston reportedly engaged in trade talks with both the Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers at February's deadline, and adding one of the two players might make the Celtics a viable threat to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"Clarification on deal: Besides its 2017 FRP, Philly sends '18 Lakers pick w/ protections".

The case got immediate national attention when Castile's girlfriend live-streamed the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook. Kaepernick posted a side by side photo of a modern police badge next to a badge of a slave patrol member.

Assuming Boston isn't averse to giving up multiple draft picks, they should have a good chance to get a trade done.

Fultz worked out at the team's practice site in Camden, N.J., and hours before the workout, the buzz was building.

The Sixers center posted on Twitter a selfie with teammate Dario Saric in front of a locker with a Fultz nameplate, headlined by @JoelEmbiid's eternal message: Trust The Process.

The message: Don't just assume I'll take Fultz. "He's a cool guy". He's a cool guy, pretty amusing.

Given the way this trade will shape the futures of two of the Eastern Conference's most promising franchises for years to come, I wouldn't be surprised if we end up debating it at a future Sloan Conference.

When Fultz arrived from his home in Maryland at the facility, he was wearing a black 76ers hat and there was an overflow media crowd taking pictures. Philadelphia already has a capable 3-and-D role player at small forward in Robert Covington and could use a player with spot-up shooting ability alongside Simmons.

The full scope of this trade won't emerge for years, but the Celtics took a risk here, something they have largely avoided since moving on from the Kevin Garnett-Paul Pierce era. Such a role is unlikely to maximize his value, however, since Fultz's best skill is playmaking out of the pick-and-roll.

During the 2016-17 season with the Clippers, Redick averaged 15 points per game, shot 44.5 percent from the floor, 42.9 percent from beyond the arc and 89.1 percent from the free throw line.

So here they are: the Celtics' five most likely options for spending the No. 3 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Though the Celtics value Fultz' overall potential as a lead scorer who can fit in with Thomas better than all the other backcourt talent in this point guard-heavy draft, they may actually may value Kansas 6-8 forward Josh Jackson more for his two-way potential. Fultz is a ideal complement to the team's two building blocks, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, giving the Sixers a guard to go with their potential franchise cornerstone wing and big man. Fultz's shooting ability will allow him to play next to Simmons, and he's also going to be a strong shot creator in his own right. "I'm close to home".
