The Lakers Also Reportedly Had Interest In The No. 1 Overall Pick

The versatile Fultz made 41.3 percent of his shots from the college three-point range.

Not long after that, according to TNT, Philadelphia agreed to a deal with Boston to acquire the first pick - which the Sixers are expected to use on Fultz. Barely three years later, he's nearly certainly going to become the No. 1 pick - and if he gets to start his pro career by calling Philadelphia his new home, he'll be living roughly a 2 1/2-hour drive from his hometown of Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

The protections on the pick from the Lakers is of course the key here, as it will determine whether the Celtics have an extra first-round pick next year, or in 2019. Fultz, the talented guard out of Washington who has always been the presumptive No. 1 pick in the draft, worked out for the Sixers on Saturday instead of a previously scheduled meeting with the Celtics.

Has $4.98 Million Stake in JP Morgan Chase & Co (JPM)
As per Thursday, October 6, the company rating was downgraded by Sandler O'Neill. (NYSE:JPM) earned "Neutral" rating by Robert W. It is negative, as 69 investors sold JPM shares while 807 reduced holdings. 166 funds opened positions while 553 raised stakes.

Fultz has every bit of the dynamic to be a game-changer in the league and could be a permanent nightmare for the Celtics, playing against them four times a year as a member of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. "Whatever happens, I'm looking forward to taking my talents wherever I go".

Then the Sixers landed the No. 3 pick in the lottery May 16. That's how highly I think of Fultz.

As valuable and enticing as Fultz's skill set seems to be, the 19-year old said he takes great pride in how he carries himself, both on and off the court.

One Dead, 10 Injured After Van Rams Into Crowd At London Mosque
Amid the angry screaming, people are heard trying to calm the crowd, one man saying: "Don't worry, officers are here". Some in the area had tried to attack the man, but were fended off by those holding him and an imam from the mosque.

"I'm truly blessed to be in this position", he said. "It was what's best for me as a player (to sit out)". With Fultz set to join Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and Dario Saric, Philadelphia could be on its way to contention (if everyone can stay healthy). "It's really cool to know that I'm a role model for kids", Mason said. "The upside of it would be insane". The 23-year-old even invited a young Jayhawks fan and his father down to his hotel in downtown Sacramento where he took pictures and hung out in the lobby. Though Fox could go in the top five, Fultz's visit and workout, not surprisingly, was a much bigger deal.

Having grown up in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, Fultz said he's been to Philadelphia a handful of times.

However, in the case of Markelle Fultz, he is too talented to pass up on at No. 1 no matter how his workout goes.
