Celtics Rumors: Sixers & Celtics in Trade Talks for No. 1 Pick

However, Boston may be looking to trade out of that slot and give it to Philadelphia for a series of picks, something reported by Marc Stein and Zach Lowe of ESPN.

The most recent offer on the table would have the Sixers sending Boston several draft picks, including the No. 3 overall selection, in exchange for the top pick, which presumably would be Fultz.

According to ESPN's Chad Ford, the Lakers are considering trading down two spots with the belief that Josh Jackson and Lonzo Ball, the two players they most covet, will still be available at No. 4.

However, there have been questions about whether or not it's a smart idea for Boston to add another potential star point guard to their lineup with current All-Star leader Isaiah Thomas. Despite this, it was mentioned that Celtics general manager Danny Ainge is okay with that He is confident that when a player experiences the environment and basketball in Beantown, it is going to fall in love with the Celtics and stay. Do they trade their late first round picks to try and move up or do they do as Fran mentioned and stock up on players who have the potential of being great in the future? Fultz is the best player and it's clear. They have also yet to even hold a workout with Jackson.

Fultz went through an hour-long private workout for the Lakers on Thursday before meeting with the team's top brass at their training complex. I still think that's a bad idea and now- their division rival may have pushed up their return to the playoffs if Brett Brown can end up with Fultz.

Former Kansas guard Josh Jackson, who had his second workout with the NBA's Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, told reporters in L.A. that he has been taking an anger management course as part of the diversion agreement he agreed to in April in Lawrence. The 76ers own the No. 3 overall pick in the draft.

The 16th pick came with their finish in the 2016-17 season and the 38th pick came via the Deng trade in 2014 from the Cleveland Cavaliers (via the Sacramento Kings). Fultz said the Lakers were interested in his ability off pick-and-roll sets and his shooting mechanics.

Fultz's talent has put him in a unique position between two of the NBA's most iconic franchises, but he welcomes the possibility of ending up on either side of the famed Celtics-Lakers rivalry. If their pick fell anywhere outside of the top three in the lottery then it would have gone to the Philadelphia 76ers.
