Celtics-Sixers trade finalised, Markelle Fultz expected to go No. 1

Pammachio Corsino | 20 Giugno, 2017, 21:51

Since the trade agreement broke this weekend, there has been speculation on whether the Celtics will swing further moves.

The Sixers will, nearly assuredly, use the top pick on Washington point guard Markelle Fultz, while the Celtics are still mulling all of their options with the third pick, whether Josh Jackson, Jayson Tatum, or trading it away for veteran help. But what do the Celtics get?

The Celtics will get an additional first-round pick in the 2018 or 2019 draft in exchange for moving down two spots in the first round this year. But it gets complicated from there thanks to pick protections.

So basically, the Sixers are giving the Celtics the Lakers' pick next season if it falls in the 2-5 range.

The pick is protected at No. 1 and 6-30, meaning the Sixers would send the Kings' 2019 first-rounder or the Sixers' own 2019 first-rounder (each protected if No. 1) if the LA selection doesn't convey.

"I am incredibly excited that we've acquired the No. 1 overall pick in Thursday's National Basketball Association draft", 76ers managing general partner Josh Harris said.

If Boston holds onto the pick, it would have seven first-rounders in the next three years. If the Lakers go out of their way to bring Paul George to the Lakers, the liklihood of L.A. being a top five pick slims down. There was a lot of conversation and evaluation on both sides, I'm sure. He knew they were leaning toward drafting Webber, but Hardaway flat-out told them that was a mistake. While there have been inquires on the No. 2 pick, sources said it remains unlikely the Lakers would trade out of that position. Well, practically. It takes place Thursday, June 22 and it can't come soon enough. The Jazz might be the most willing to sell one of their picks, so they could see how free agency plays out, especially with Gordon Hayward potentially leaving.


Washington guard Markelle Fultz is the top player on many draft boards, followed by UCLA's Lonzo Ball. However, if one of those picks turns out to be the first pick, the Celtics will receive the other one.

The Sixers get the player that best fits their needs at No. 1. But realistically, there's a decent chance one of the two or both still will be pretty bad by then.

The 2017 NBA Draft is here.

No players were traded in this deal.

The Celtics only gave up the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

The Boston Celtics have traded out of the No. 1 pick. Coming off a 54-win season, the Sixers looked primed to get even better by adding the top overall selection in that year's draft.
