Philadelphia completed its trade for the No. 1 overall pick in this year's National Basketball Association draft, landing the pick from the Boston Celtics on Monday in a move that clears the way for the 76ers to grab guard Markelle Fultz.

Philadelphia and Boston completed their trade of draft picks on Monday, the 76ers acquiring the No. 1 pick from the Celtics and netting the chance to draft Washington guard Markelle Fultz. These two scenarios will ensure the Boston Celtics get to pick Markell Fultz. "That's our goal. That's where we want to be". That leaves Jackson, who would better fit a rebuilding team, like the Pacers, rather than a team in the hunt for a championship, like the Celtics. He would not reveal the targeted player, but the worst-kept secret is that the Sixers will use the pick on Washington point guard Markelle Fultz.

The Celtics traded the first pick in this year's draft for the third pick and what will be another first-round pick in either 2018 or 2019. It impacts the Knicks' decision based on the fact that both teams are inquiring for guards. However, the team later traded its selection to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for the No. 3 and a future first-rounder.

The Los Angeles Lakers have retained their No. 2 pick and are expected to pick UCLA's Lonzo Ball, a 6-foot-6 point guard who has drawn as much attention for his opinionated father LaVar as for his own play on the court. However, it doesn't really indicate if the Boston Celtics are drafting him for their roster or for another interested team. By trading away the No. 1pick, the Celtics would pass on Fultz who is expected to be a future superstar but a possibility of landing Josh Jackson a swingman from Kansas at No. 3 is quite appealing for the Celtics who need help at the wing position more than they do in the backcourt. "Jayson Tatum, just because he's so versatile and I think his game will translate better in the National Basketball Association than it did in college; and he was already great in college. I would venture to say we're going to be sold out this year playing to full capacity every night". "After that I think there are some guys with upside, but upside may get you fired".

Heavy rain and the risk of flooding directly associated with the storm are also likely to extend northward to I-20 late this week. Peak gusts to 50 miles per hour will resemble a typical severe thunderstorm that we go through a few times every summer.

So the way he looks at it, the deal is a win-win. Well, the Celtics had real interest in George a year ago, diving into serious trade talks with the Pacers to acquire the swing forward at the trade deadline.

Less than two weeks removed from the NBA finals, the association is already grabbing headlines as it gears up for the offseason.

The Boston Celtics made the trade of the No.1 overall pick to the Philadelphia 76er's official on Monday.

"We felt that the value of adding the one pick now was the right thing at the expense of only losing one of four (in 2018 and '19) going forward", he said.

Durant reportedly plans to take about $4 million less than the maximum he is eligible for as a 10-year veteran, giving Golden State flexibility with its cap space.
