Multiple reports indicated Ainge is seeking at least two first-round picks from the Sixers - No. 3 in Thursday night's NBA Draft and one of the Sixers' 2018 first-rounders (the Lakers' unprotected selection or the Sixers' own choice). According to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, who first reported on the rumored deal, the Celtics would also get a conditional pick that will be either the Lakers' first-round pick in 2018 or the Sacramento Kings' first-round pick in 2019. If you wanted to trade for a Jimmy Butler or Paul George, the top pick was more valuable than No. 3 and a future pick of unknown value, and their reasons for not wanting Markelle Fultz should they have kept the pick seem flawed as well.
League sources tell @ZachLowe_NBA and me that the Sixers and Celtics are in serious talks on a trade involving the No. 1 overall pick. His visit was supposedly the final hurdle to clear the trade was being wrapped up.
"He and I have been talking before when I was in college", Fultz said. "Whatever happens, I'm looking forward to taking my talents wherever I go". Tatum built off of his Gatorade high school national player of the year honor in 2016 with a strong freshman year at Duke.
With this year's No, 1 pick, the Sixers are expected to select Markelle Fultz. He's giving me tips and pointers and he's pretty amusing, so when I saw that it was pretty cool and pretty amusing.
The team doctor examined Fultz before the workout, and Fultz said the exam went fine. Just being with a young team, I think the upside of it would be insane. "Just showing love to the city, I'm out here, I want to show love". 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.
Philadelphia is set up to develop a legitimate big three of players who all have the upside to be a franchise cornerstone in Fultz, Simmons and Joel Embiid.
The same questions about fit will now surround Philadelphia's backcourt, although Ben Simmons - who missed his entire rookie season a year ago while recovering from a foot injury - can be more of a traditional point guard than Thomas, and won't require the ball in his hands as much. Embiid and Dario Saric will finish in the top three when rookie of the year results get announced on June 26, and Simmons is expected to be ready for next season after recovering from foot surgery.
"Embiid and me have been talking before". "He's a cool guy".
Fultz, projected as a blue-chip scorer, now has Sixers general manager Bryan Colangelo envisioning a ideal fit with Embiid, Simmons and Saric.
Stay on topic - This helps keep the thread focused on the discussion at hand. At the time it was just speculation, but after discussions reportedly heated up this week, it looks like the deal may be actually happening.
Regardless, Twitter obviously went off as soon as the trade details became known, and plenty of different opinions were thrown out into the world of social media, both angry and happy.
