76ers take Fultz, Lakers grab Ball to start NBA draft

By now the entire.

National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver confirmed the trade during the 2017 entry draft.

During a dizzying few days of deals around the National Basketball Association, the presumed No. 1 pick had his Saturday plans - not to mention his future destination - change when the Philadelphia 76ers brought him in for a workout.

Jackson has been heavily rumored to be Danny Ainge's target on Thursday night, part of the reason he traded out of the first spot (Duke's Jayson Tatum and Florida State's Jonathan Isaac are other rumored players).

General view of the stage before the 2017 NBA Draft at Barclays Center. However, recent rumors suggest that the MA entity is already seriously considering the possibility of selecting also forward Jayson Tatum in that position.

Teams seem to have one eye on the draft and future stars like Fultz and Lonzo Ball, while the other is firmly focused on jockeying for proven veterans. "You don't just use the college system as a kind of training ground".

Ultimately, Fultz got it right the second time around. "I would love to play in Boston".

The Bulls traded Jimmy Butler and their 16th pick to Minnesota for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the TimberWolves' seventh pick, two people told The Associated Press.

I still think Jackson is the best option for the Celtics at #3.

Malik Monk 6-3 200 SG Kentucky Fr. I obviously don't know him since I graduated back in 1999, but I can not explain to you how much pride I take in being an alumni of DeMatha and the pride in seeing another grad doing well in life. "I believe I fill in every box on both ends of the floor".

For all those Sixers fans out there who think having the No. 1 pick is an immediate cure for all the team's ills, think again.

"There's been a history over the last three or four years in the league of making outrageous demands for trades", said Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck.

Apparently, the Celtics would have received all the necessary medical documentation from Jackson, which precedes any private practice of a player prior to the Draft.

In an interview on ESPN, Calipari insisted "It's not broken", and said being selected in the National Basketball Association draft is the equivalent of putting a player on a so-called lifetime scholarship.

"The draft was very even we felt at the top", Ainge said. No more drafting the best available, but getting someone who could flow seamlessly into the offense that will also feature Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. It would take three more years, and a number of moves, for the Warriors to win it all.

Specifically, all eyes are on the Indiana Pacers and their willingness to move Paul George, who has informed the team he plans to leave in free agency next summer and would prefer to play for the Lakers, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.

But they should be able to find someone good Thursday.

"I figured out I had a chance to make it there [the NBA] probably in my 11th grade", said Fultz, who played for the University of Washington Huskies last season.

Embiid, who showed flashes of becoming the top big man in a guard's game, must stay healthy for a full season as a start for the Sixers to win anything more than 30 games.

"We are really open-minded with this pick, it's not very often you see a pick in the 20s that can contribute right away, but sometimes we say, 'you never know, ' " he said.
