76ers formally introduce Markelle Fultz to Philly

Pammachio Corsino | 25 Giugno, 2017, 15:47

A 28-win season had sent them to their customary position in the losers' bracket, or as the National Basketball Association calls it, a draft lottery. "Today we take The Process to another level".

With that in mind, here are the biggest winners from Thursday's 60-pick extravaganza in Brooklyn.

Seven if you count the one at the airport.

In a blockbuster trade days before the draft, the Boston Celtics traded the first pick in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft for the third selection owned by the Philadelphia 76ers.

At No. 21, Oklahoma City selected Terrance Ferguson, who played in Australia after initialing committing to Arizona out of high school. He made $5.7 million in the first year of his rookie deal and $5.9 million last season. On the young Timberwolves roster, Butler's veteran presence should help everyone on both ends. Thursday was no different.

The Sixers are not about to let Embiid go, they have their young core they believe they can contend with in a few years.


Over the past 10 seasons, only two other freshmen had a better scoring average in college: Kevin Durant for Texas in 2006-07 and Michael Beasley for Kansas State in 2007-08. Not bad at all. "I didn't know (who) I was working out for". Major companies want to work deals with you -- and throw large chunks of cash so you can promote their product.

Still, the Pacers must trade George, and more time passed by without that happening.

If Embiid is not extended, he will be a restricted free agent next offseason. He knows the players he's building around, as well as how their talents mesh on the floor. "We could pull the trigger at any time". Oh and they were also forced to throw the 16th pick into the deal just to get it done, which seemed unnecessary.

It's clear the Bulls have given up on rebuilding around Butler, to the agony of Bulls fans. I can not necessarily point to a specific answer just yet, as we have yet to see how this pick will transform Boston come next season.

"I figured out I had a chance to make it there (the NBA) probably (in) my 11th grade", he said.

The trade created a potential contender in Minnesota and confirmed that the Bulls are in rebuilding mode. General manager Bryan Colangelo can potentially find a good deal to trade away Okafor while getting back some valuable role players for this team, adding pieces to an nearly completed puzzle that will lead the Philadelphia 76ers to becoming contenders again.
