He also expressed that he just wants to get the draft over with as he wants to fully invest in the team he will be put in.

The 76ers weren't the only team with their sights set on Markelle Fultz, the highly regarded option for the No. 1 pick in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft. The Celts had the No. 1 overall pick, and for the first time in his tenure, the president of basketball operations would not have his draft night options impacted by what others did before him.

The future first-round pick that Boston will receive will be the Los Angeles Lakers' first-round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, provided that such pick is No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, or No. 5 in the 2018 NBA Draft.

After the Sixers were given the third overall pick by way of the lottery, it seemed like everything was locked into place.

The trade is likely to be finalized on Monday, sources said. And lastly it was that LA wanted Fultz badly.

"My knee is great. I don't really pay attention to everything that's going on".

"No, because draft picks are always tradable; players are not", Ainge said.

Fultz told reporters it would be "crazy" to play for the Sixers.

And then come the Celtics, starting the real intrigue.

"[The last few days have] been insane, man", Fultz said. He added, "I wake up every morning and get ready to go to the gym". "I have to get a cheesesteak". Driving out of town to wherever you're going, just going to play some AAU games.

Fultz wasn't sure where he was headed after the workout. Instead, the team keeps their strong young core together, and makes it even stronger through the addition of Fultz. "I'm close to home". 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 upside of it would be insane".

Fultz thinks he can bring a presence on defense, a deft shooting touch and intangibles to the Sixers. "Whatever happens, I'm looking forward to taking my talents to wherever I go".

Lakers won't give Lonzo Ball guarantee: Shams Charania: Lakers front office and Lonzo Ball's agent, Harrison Gaines, remain in discussions, but no guarantees made yet for No. 2 pick. Trading away the ability to draft guard Markelle Fultz - the consensus top player in this draft - is a big move. I let God take care of that. It will require much more work, risk, and investment.

That's right. I went there.

That may be the case for the 31-year-old Villanova product but the good news for him is there's still a handful of teams who will pursue him once free agency starts. When the trade was first reported, Jackson posted to Twitter to take what appeared to be a shot at Fultz. "Trust the Process", of course. "He's a cool guy". When I saw that I thought it was pretty cool, pretty amusing. Fultz is a player who doesn't come with weaknesses that need to be fixed.
