Markelle Fultz, Joel Embiid fully believe Sixers are a playoff team

Pammachio Corsino | 25 Giugno, 2017, 15:37

"Today we take The Process to another level".

Philadelphia 76ers' draft picks Anzejs Pasecniks, from left, Markelle Fultz, and team president Bryan Colangelo laugh during a news conference at the team's NBA basketball training complex, Friday, June 23, 2017, in Camden, NJ.

Seven if you count the one at the airport.

With that in mind, here are the biggest winners from Thursday's 60-pick extravaganza in Brooklyn. Fultz could have wound up in Boston, had the Celtics held on to that No. 1 pick instead of sending it to the 76ers for the No. 3 pick and another first-rounder in the next two years. Beats doing anything they can to not win. While many were impressed with his passing abilities, Ball is also a much better shooter than he his given credit for. Here's an example from 2014 and another from 2017, just to prove that this has been happening for a long time.

Los Angeles, under new basketball operations chief Earvin "Magic" Johnson, paved the way for a return to their "Showtime" flair by trading young point guard D'Angelo Russell and taking dazzling backcourtman Lonzo Ball of UCLA with the second pick.

White spent three years at University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, which is a feeder school to the University of Colorado. The front office has also said that they expect to have more high draft picks in coming years. The jury is still out on the third, Ben Simmons, who was the top selection past year.

It was just a bad weak for the Pacers.

They didn't trade Kristaps Porzingis.


And despite all of the speculation involving Kristaps Porzingis and Paul George, both the Celtics and Knicks did nothing out of the ordinary.

I don't know how they knew, but they knew.

The 19-year-old point guard has 1.7m Instagram followers and has only been in college for a year but his father, Lavar, is one of the most outspoken people in sport. Well, actually, on top of all that, the Timberwolves still have plenty of cap space to chase down another top free agent this summer - is this the year they finally make their big jump? But the haunting question about the Sixers' overwhelming urge to make him theirs is why, after all that tankage to acquire Simmons, they were still so lacking in their backcourt.

But now that the rest of the league knows the Pacers have to trade for him, his trade value has cratered. It's okay, Jimmy, we didn't understand the trade on the Bulls' part, either. "We could pull the trigger at any time".

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.

If that wasn't enough, Philly fans found an open love letter from Fultz to the city on The Players' Tribune.

The trade created a potential contender in Minnesota and confirmed that the Bulls are in rebuilding mode.
