76ers might be willing to deal for the No. 1 pick

They will land a highly-valued player, of course, just that it's possible someone they covet will be off the board when they are finally on the clock. When asked about what his goals were coming into his rookie season by Tracy McGrady, Fultz responded: "Yeah, I got big goals for myself, Rookie of the Year, winning MVP". "There's still a lot of time, also, so I don't know that that's the best way to describe it". At 6-foot-4, 195 pounds with a 6-foot-10 wingspan, he fights his way to the glass and is a reliable passer.

According to a storm of reports that trickled out late Friday afternoon, the 76ers are are involved in trade talks with the Celtics involving the No. 1 pick in the draft.

When the Celtics first landed the No. 1 overall pick, it seemed like a pretty safe bet that they'd keep the pick and draft Washington guard Markelle Fultz.

At this point it's unclear what picks are being offered, the number 3 pick is nearly guaranteed to be included and one of the Sixers 2018 pick or Lakers 2018 could be involved as well.

What's a Celtics draft without confusion? Jahlil Okafor's name was mentioned in at least one scenario. Financial terms of Fultz's deal were undisclosed.

So why would the Celitcs pull off a trade that seems so beneficial to the Sixers? Moving down could enable the Celtics to take Jackson at a point of value while acquiring additional assets.

With Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons already on the roster, the Sixers would be picking up one more piece to the puzzle that could turn them into a contender sooner rather than later. If Boston decides not to draft Fultz, league sources have speculated the Celtics will opt for Kansas forward Josh Jackson instead. Colangelo, Brown, Eversley and Williams weren't there.

The terms have not been disclosed, but Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical is reporting its a multi-year endorsement deal.

In his lone collegiate season, 23.2 points, 5.9 assists, and 5.7 rebounds per game while shooting 47.6 percent from the field. "It's a great city, a great team, a lot of history behind this team".

The excitement of the draft could happen sooner than June 22.

The deal could also affect how other teams draft. Suddenly that might be more true than we knew. "On the court, it's debatable (how workouts change from team to team)".

The Sixers were always thought to be the team that would act as the inflection point for where the rest of the draft would go. They would love to throw those teams off the scent.
