Fultz, Embiid fully believe Sixers are a playoff team

Pammachio Corsino | 25 Giugno, 2017, 17:31

Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball were front and center when all the expected top picks took their traditional photo before Thursday night's National Basketball Association draft.

As for Butler, he'll reunite with Tom Thibodeau and average 46 minutes per game.

From there, they turned aggressive, traded with the Celtics for the top pick, and Thursday selected University of Washington freshman Markelle Fultz. "Not only with what he represents as a human being but what he represents as a basketball player, it could just not be a more ideal fit". "I mean, say you want to do something, and to go out and do it is unbelievable".

When it comes to being drafted by a professional sports team, more goes into a player's preference of where they want to play than actual on-the-court things. But when news broke last week that the Philadelphia 76ers were trading for the top pick in the NBA Draft, all that changed.

Embiid averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.45 blocked shots in 31 games last season, missing the final 2 1/2 months because of a torn left meniscus. He walked across the stage Thursday night at Barclays Center wearing orange sneakers made of basketballs.

The second No. 1 pick actually signed with his team and played... in 17 games.

The Sixers won't doubt Fultz, who became the franchise's fourth No. 1 overall pick despite being cut by the DeMatha Catholic High School varsity team his sophomore year just a few years ago. So Fultz is their "ideal" guy, and he may be a star, even though he played one season in college, helped his team win two conference games and saw his coach fired.

The only larger audience was for the 2015 draft, the network said Friday.


Ball, expected to be selected No. 2 to the Los Angeles Lakers, wore an all-black suit - as did his father, LaVar, who sat with his family at a table near the stage.

Ball, the 6-6 playmaking wizard, will have the keys to the Lakers' offense after the trade of combo guard D'Angelo Russell, who was one of the top players in the 2016 Vegas Summer League and now plays for the Brooklyn Nets.

Tonight is the night every hoop phenom dreams about.

"It was unreal", Fultz said. He's got all the tools to be a good inside presence but just hasn't put it all together.

The Celtics used the third pick on Duke's Jayson Tatum.

The Kings grabbed Kentucky point guard De'Aaron Fox at No. 5. The run of freshmen bettered the 2014 record of four straight first-year players to start the draft, finally ending when the New York Knicks took French guard Frank Ntilikina at No. 8.

"It is truly a blessing", said Fultz of his rapid ascent after one season at Washington. Under NBA rules, draft picks' salaries must be between 80 and 120 percent of a predetermined figure. Fultz noted that the Sixers somehow found out he loves Chick-fil-A so much that they had sandwiches at his workout with them that day.
