Magic buys into Ball hype as Lakers look to rebuild

Markelle Fultz shakes the hand of NBA commissioner Adam Silver at 2017 draft NBA draft: Why everyone's talking about Lonzo Ball

The Source Sports will be tuning to provide full coverage of each pick from each team.

Point guard D'Angelo Russell was picked in that spot in 2015, followed by small forward Brandon Ingram in 2016.

"It's an honor to be compared to James Harden", Fultz said.

Along with Fultz, the Sixers also drafted four other players in the draft, three of which came in the second round.

The Lakers went with a local product with the No. 2 pick, getting UCLA guard Lonzo Ball. That's great for me because my backdoor slips, he's going to have the ball in the air for me. The pressure is high on Lonzo, with all the expectations on him, he better prove something.

Good on Tatum for taking all of it in stride.

The Phoenix Suns selected Josh Jackson from Kansas University. They nabbed another shooting guard with the 46th overall pick, selecting Sterling Brown out of SMU.


There was one big trade - with Jimmy Butler going from the Chicago Bulls to the Minnesota Timberwolves - but otherwise the draft played out very much like it was supposed to according to most prior prognostications.

The Orlando Magic chose to stay home and drafted an Seminole. It's the fourth time the Sixers have had the top pick in the draft. The team hasn't been to the playoffs since the 2012-2013 season when they were swept by the San Antonio Spurs in the first round after bringing in All-Stars Dwight Howard and Steve Nash.

Fultz is widely considered the best talent in this draft, and rightly so.

Fultz was all set to become a Celtic but on Monday the pick was officially dealt to Philadelphia.

Already under a lot of scrutiny, Phil Jackson has made a decision to follow the trend that the Knicks been known for around this time of the year. They also wanted a player who could fill in at the point when Simmons is on the bench. Unfortunately for Fultz, the post will live on forever, as it was screenshotted by many users. Without an extension, Embiid is due to make $6.1 million this year. Instead, Portland did neither, trading two picks to move up and get Zach Collins, a center from Gonzaga, and Caleb Swanigan, a center from Purdue. His name didn't ring bells til his outstanding performances in the NCAA tournament. If he can develop a three point shot then look out.

Sampson and Olajuwon, though, are the only consecutive overall No. 1 picks to play together for the team that drafted them. No Boogie, no problem. Everyone loved this pick, even though it was expected, and rightfully so. Charlotte took another player from Kentucky as it drafted freshman Malik Monk with its No. 11 pick. He's unbelievable. He has a great feel for the game.

You know, maybe this one-man Mardi Gras parade, this boastful bag of gas, this big mouth everyone keeps telling to clam up, is more than just a burden on your mute button.
