He's got great body balance and by far in this draft, he's the best pick and roll ball handler in the draft.

Teams seem to have one eye on the draft and future stars like Fultz and Lonzo Ball, while the other is firmly focused on jockeying for proven veterans.

The Philadelphia 76ers introduced #1 overall National Basketball Association draft pick Markelle Fultz to the city on Friday. Last week, he earned an invite from the franchise. Even Processors have started the clock ticking.

Washington Huskies guard Markelle Fultz (20) looks on form the bench during a game against the Washington State Cougars during the second half at Friel Court at Beasley Coliseum. "Really, stick Embiid and Simmons and Fultz together and it could happen at any time". "We like to call it a measured, organic pattern of growth".

Now Fultz officially is a member of the 76ers and the latest young piece in a rebuilding plan dubbed by former GM Sam Hinkie as "the process".

The road ends Thursday in NY.

Jones felt Fultz is more than ready to handle all of the attention that he's about to receive.

After Fultz was off the board, the Los Angeles Lakers followed by taking Lonzo Ball, with the point guards from the Pac-12 Conference beginning a run of seven straight freshmen.

Also on the team are centers Jahlil Okafor and Joel Embiid, who were selected No. 3 overall in 2015 and 2014, respectively.


In an expected move after the Sixers traded up from three to one with the Boston Celtics, the Sixers finally get their point guard, a guy that has been said to be one of the most revered number one picks in recent memory. Colangelo, though, picked Andrea Bargnani with the top pick in 2006 with Toronto.

Fultz dispelled rumors that he "refused to work out for the Sixers". Fultz, a point guard, played one season at Washington before going pro, and was widely expected to be the first player chosen.

The program won 28 games last season, which, incredibly, was nearly triple the total of the season before.

The 14 lottery picks in Thursday night's National Basketball Association draft have been made, and there were three Wildcats selected.

"This city has to feel fantastic", coach Brett Brown said.

Silver said he will explore solutions to "see if we can come up with a better system". We agree on that.

Duke had two players in the top 14, and nobody else placed more than one.

Philadelphia also owns four second-round picks, acquired in previous trades with the Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks and Utah Jazz.

"Fultz would have gone No. 2 in last year's draft behind Simmons", Goodman said. Consider, four years ago, the Sixers' season-ticket base at this time of the year was at 3,400.
