Philadelphia 76ers take Fultz with top pick in NBA draft

Acilia Dean | 23 Giugno, 2017, 23:11

The 2017 NBA Draft came with a flurry of trades and very few to no stunning picks. Jimmy Butler hadn't ascended into the upper ranks of National Basketball Association stars quite yet.

"I think I do everything at least decent", Fultz said. When commissioner Adam Silver announced the pick, Philly fans erupted throughout the building with excitement and joy. His brother and his agent have downplayed it, but still, it's a chance for a person to express themselves and I had a real good relationship with Kristaps over the last two years. Irving and James are the only players in that span to do it with the team that drafted them. McConnell and Robert Covington all came to the 76ers as either second round picks or as undrafted free agents and have developed into consistent contributors.

The NBA offseason has been way more unpredictable than the postseason was.

There have been a flurry of trades since the Warriors beat the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, though most of the moves on draft night were minor. The Bulls traded Butler and the No. 16 overall pick, which was used on Creighton center, Justin Patton to the Timberwolves for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and the No. 7 overall pick, which was used on Arizona forward, Laurie Markkanen. The Sixers gave up conditional future draft picks for Pasecniks, a 7-1 center, who could be stashed overseas and continue to develop before he is brought over. Utah Jazz 25. Orlando Magic (from Raptors) 26. Brown said of Fultz, Ben Simmons, and Joel Embiid. But if the Lakers want Lonzo - and it seems they do after trading point guard D'Angelo Russell to Brooklyn - they won't be turned off by LaVar.

It began with a flurry of freshmen and ended with a run on seniors. When is the NBA Draft? . As expected, one-and-doners Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball led the way. Fox went for a season-high 39 points on 13-for-20 shooting compared to Ball's 10-point night in the Wildcats' 86-75 win in the Sweet 16. Prior to that, he played three years at Division II Colorado-Colorado Springs, where he was an All-American as a junior.


Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball have been the headliners in so much of the pre-draft conversations, projected to be selected first and second. Some are bolder than others, but as long as one of them happens - or kind of happens - I'm taking the W on this one. Jackson is a defense-first swingman who struggles to create his own shot and has an in-progress jumper-the exact same type of player Boston selected a year ago in Jaylen Brown. If you didn't have time to watch the first round of the draft, here are some quick highlights of Thursday's draft. Despite the great seasons put up by Embiid and Saric, the Sixers still found themselves as a lottery team once again. Although the Philadelphia-based franchise is now in line to select former Washington Huskies guard Markelle Fultz, it appears as though the 76ers are not done just yet.

Bam Adebayo was the last lottery pick; he went 14th to Miami, joining n Fox and Monk in the National Basketball Association.

The Kings grabbed Kentucky point guard De'Aaron Fox at No. 5.

One of the things that has irked Phil the most about Porzingis is how he skipped his exit interview with the Knicks. The Huskies had a pair of first-round picks in 2016: Marquese Chriss (No. 8 to Phoenix via Sacramento) and Dejounte Murray (No. 29 to San Antonio).

That's a trend that could slow down after this year.

Aside from Ball, the Lakers added three players to their roster during the 2017 NBA Draft.
