National Basketball Association draft pick rumor: Philadelphia 76ers might acquire Markelle Fultz

Pammachio Corsino | 20 Giugno, 2017, 01:13

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 trade is scheduled to become finalized on Monday.

Reports claimed that the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers agreed to swap their No. 1 and 3 picks, which will take place this Thursday. That visit was essentially the final hurdle to clear before Boston and Philadelphia could decide to actually consummate the trade. Assuming health - a big assumption, given Simmons missed all last season with a broken foot and Embiid has played 31 games in three seasons - Philadelphia looks like a rising powerhouse in the Eastern Conference.

Fultz, barring something shocking, will join a core in Philadelphia that includes Simmons, Jahlil Okafor and 2017 Rookie of the Year finalists Joel Embiid and Dario Saric.

The Celtics, on the other hand, have their eyes on getting more athletic at the wing forward positions.

"I let God take care of it", he said. Whether the Lakers select Lonzo Ball or go in a different direction, they'll be looking to add to that small number of 12 successful picks.

"I really don't pay a lot of attention to it", Fultz said of the trade talks. "I think I'm just a hard worker, and I'll do whatever it takes to help whatever team I go to, to win".


Boston is on track to trade the No. 1 pick this year to the 76ers for the No. 3 pick and either the Lakers' 2018 first-rounder or Kings' 2019 first-rounder.

Could Danny Ainge figure out a way to add All-Stars at shooting guard and small forward during the same National Basketball Association offseason?

A player that does fit, however, is Duke forward Jayson Tatum, whose scoring prowess would highly benefit a team desperate for any offense from someone not named Isaiah Thomas. When the Sixers are winning games with their future 1st rounder on the court with the other members of their future big three, nobody is going to remember his college team's record. And if he gets to start his pro career by calling Philadelphia his new home, he'll be living roughly a 2½-hour drive from his hometown of Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

"It was about a two-day process", Fultz said of his Philly experience. Despite the draft being four days away, there were still not many reports on where the Sixers were leaning. It's been a blessing. It's been a blessing; a dream I always had. Fultz ended his freshman season averaging 23.2 points, 5.8 assists, 5.6 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks per game.

The Lakers held internal discussions about trading back two spots to No. 4 if the Suns were to offer them a 2018 first-round pick. Perhaps, as one Philadelphia 76ers article said months ago, Karma steered Markelle Fultz to the Philadelphia 76ers all along.

Assuming the roster remains the way it is now (with their new draft picks) and everyone performs the way they did last season, the Sixers could finally make their way to the Playoffs for the first time since 2012.
