New to Philly, Markelle Fultz Already Has His Cheesesteak Order Down

Pammachio Corsino | 25 Giugno, 2017, 14:13

Chicago made the choice of trading away Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Kris Dunn and Zach LaVine. He's followed by a tie between Josh Jackson of the Phoenix Suns and Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics, each of whom will have nine to one odds.

Game five averaged 24.5 million viewers, making it the most watched game five since 1998, and an additional 537,000 streaming viewers.

Outsiders might find it premature for fans to be so gaga over a club that won 28 games last season and just 75 combined over the previous four seasons. He blocks shots, hits 3s and doesn't do too much else, but that was enough to turn him from forgotten bench-warmer to the No. 17 overall pick for the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Pacers weren't able to trade superstar forward Paul George, who reportedly has informed them he won't re-sign next summer.

The Bulls also held the 38th pick in the second round.

Overall, the Celtics took a player who should contribute this season, and a high reward, low-risk player with Ojeleye who could be the steal of the draft.


Widely reviled and also admired, the Sixers' plan to go from worst-to-first by openly stripping the roster bare of talent to lose and gobble draft picks has resulted in Joel Embiid, Simmons and now Fultz. They believe they are destined for National Basketball Association greatness, perhaps soon, and for that they are required to have a full-service lineup. Simmons has yet to play his first full season, while the Sixers are hoping their newest pick doesn't suffer Simmons' fate of being out for his first year. Anunoby sustained a knee injury which lowered his draft stock but could develop into a future big man for Toronto.

Sixers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo has good vision of the team's style of play as well as how Fultz will fit in. If Anunoby is healthy, the Raptors took a solidified gamble. While it doesn't quite reach the levels of Dion Waiters's opus in April, it's pretty good.

After Fultz was picked, fellow freshman Ball was selected by the Los Angeles Lakers with the second pick. Sure, Ntilikina is an excellent perimeter defender and very athletic, but he's not NBA-ready, particularly offensively, and the Knicks took him over a more ready and more talented point guard in Smith. So Minnesota chose to drafted Lauri Markkanen from the Arizona Wildcats and send him with Kris Dunn for superstar Jimmy Butler.

Last night we witnessed every hoop phenom dreams coming true. Fultz was easily one of the most high-profile players in the draft. There will continue to be an abundance of youth on the team next year, with the immediate insertions of Fultz and Simmons into the starting lineup and the continued development of players like TLC, Richaun Holmes, Nik Stauskas, and Justin Anderson (though the question of whether that last player is worth developing is a valid one).

The Philadelphia 76ers' headliner was Markelle Fultz, but don't underestimate the scope of their haul.
