Celtics talking trade with 76ers for top pick in NBA Draft

Reports: Celtics in 'serious' talks to trade No. 1 pick to Sixers

LOS ANGELES-The consensus among many National Basketball Association executives is that the players who'll be taken with the top five picks in Thursday's National Basketball Association draft are a foregone conclusion. Recent reports suggest that the Boston Celtics are nearing a trade to send the No. 1 overall pick to the Philadelphia 76ers.

"I had some stuff going on with my knee - I don't really want to address it", Fultz said. "I'm anxious to get to that day and get it over with". That was big. Of course being out there, I could imagine myself on the court, helping the team out for sure.

According to Jonathan Givony of Draft Express, "Word out of LA is Markelle Fultz "murdered" his Lakers workout (on Thursday)". With the deal to be finalized by the league on Monday, here is what we know about the Celtics & 76ers trade. And after selecting Ben Simmons as the top selection of the 2016 NBA Draft, that is exactly what they need.

After the shooting, back to bickering at White House, Congress
James Hodgkinson , 66, from Belleville, Illinois, was shot dead by police after opening fire in Alexandria, Virginia on Wednesday. Among other things, Hodgkinson said Trump had screwed up the country " more than anyone in the history of this country".

The Sixers ultimately were able to get the deal done with the Celtics, sending their No. 3 pick in the 2017 draft, as well as the 2018 Lakers pick with protections.

With Fultz in the fold and presumably the 76ers' starting point guard of the present and future, making a free-agent contract offer to Kyle Lowry no longer makes sense for Philadelphia.

Simmons and Embiid took in Fultz's workout, hours after Embiid posed for a photo alongside a locker set up with Fultz's name in the Sixers' locker room. So 76ers big man Joel Embiid, with teammate Dario Saric by his side, made a decision to have a little fun and post a selfie in front of a locker that included Fultz's name plate.

They are also perturbed by the fact that Qatar has maintained open relations with Iran, Saudi Arabia's adversary in the region. Shi'ite Muslim Iran repeated accusations that Saudi Arabia funds Sunni Islamist militants, including Islamic State.

Magic Johnson and the Los Angeles Lakers were after him too.

"It would be pretty cool". This pick was originally the Brooklyn Nets, which was traded to Boston in the Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett blockbuster deal back in 2013. Or has the plan been to flip this pick and other assets to land a star to go after the Cavaliers sooner rather than later? The team also won in 2015.

Butler averaged 23.9 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game last season.

We bowled okay but 200 was well under par. "You have to adapt in knockout cricket, so it's an important lesson", added Morgan.

His scoring average is the third highest among freshmen in the last 10 seasons. Think how much talent that is and what a bright future that would represent for the Sixers, assuming the players are healthy. Markelle Fultz, while obviously the best player available, would give the team more of where they already have strength.
