Sixers in position to grab Markelle Fultz with No

The Celtics could pull the trigger on some of these first round picks to bring Butler, one of the best two way players in the National Basketball Association, to Boston with a starting lineup that already features Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, and Al Horford.

Boston received the 76ers' third overall pick in the draft plus a future first-round pick from Philadelphia in exchange for making the move. With an additional pick in 2018 or 2019 as well, the cupboard continues to be stocked in Boston.

The Celtics made a ludicrous haul of assets even heftier. Rodger Wyland is the sports director for NewsChannel 13. They also do not need a point guard, unlike the 76ers, who are very high on Fultz. Ainge said it was "possible" that Boston could make another deal before the draft, but described the swap as "a jump-start" for the Celtics. "The timing of the deal and the protections on the pick suggests both teams were negotiating on common grounds".

"We think there's a really good chance the player we'll take at [No.] 3 is the same player we would have taken at [No.] 1".

The Celtics have been linked with either Josh Jackson of Kansas or Jayson Tatum of Duke at No 3, although multiple media outlets reported the team may be willing to deal the pick. "This pick provides us a tremendous opportunity to add another foundational player to our promising core".

Celtics fans have been leery about moving back, particularly with all the buzz about likely No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz.

This is the second straight season the 76ers will have the No. 1 pick. "It's a deep (draft) class, but we felt the move from three to one was worth the cost of a first-round pick in the future". "We know how good Cleveland and we know how good Golden State is". He shot 47.6 percent, averaged along with 5.9 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 1.6 steals over 25 games during his freshman season with the Huskies, who posted a 9-22 record. They have a supremely talented young core, but will be relying on two players, Ben Simmons and presumably Markelle Fultz, who have yet to play a second in the National Basketball Association, plus another, Joel Embiid, with a long history of health issues. Fultz, who went to high school in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, led the Pac-12 in scoring and finished No. 6 among all Division I players.

Most expect the Sixers to take Washington guard Markelle Fultz first overall and pair him with Ben Simmons, who missed what would have been his rookie season with a foot injury after going No. 1 previous year. The trio of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Fultz is going to be tough to deal with.

"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.
