Sixers Officially Move Up to No. 1 in Trade With Celtics

Sixers Officially Move Up to No. 1 in Trade With Celtics

The Philadelphia 76ers will have the first overall pick in the NBA Draft for the second consecutive year after finalising their deal with the Boston Celtics on Monday and moving up from the number three spot.

Boston will receive the 2018 first-round pick of the Los Angeles Lakers - if that selection falls between the No. 2 to No. 5 range. If it doesn't convey, Boston will receive either Sacramento Kings' or Sixers' first-round pick in 2019; the Celtics would take whichever one is more favorable.

The Sixers and Celtics agreed to a trade that sees Philly acquire this year's #1 pick, in exchange for this year's #3 pick, and a future first round draft pick. So, this year's draft is not as big for them as other teams like the Sixers and Lakers. In short: Barring a surprise trade for the No. 3 pick involving a player like Jimmy Butler, Boston's draft night decision will come down to Jackson and Tatum. Could the Celtics get that Superstar they have needed with theit surplus of picks, and the assets they have. I'm a pretty good shot blocker for a point guard, so I think helping them with that, everything would pretty much help with that. Inside the treasure chest is next year's Nets top pick (of course), along with six other first-rounders in the next three drafts. The latter pick is top-seven-protected in 2018 but unprotected in 2019. Philadelphia chose Ben Simmons with first pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Allen Iverson in 1996 and Doug Collins in 1973.

Summer Solstice 2017: Facts To Know About The First Day Of Summer
The summer solstice, despite popular belief, is actually the point at which Earth is farthest from the sun and not closest. It occurs when the sun is directly over the Tropic of Cancer, or more specifically right over 23.5 degrees north latitude.

The Sixers now figure to be the likely destination for Washington point guard Markelle Fultz, though it's not a foregone conclusion. "They're getting the player they want", said Ainge, the Celtics' president of basketball operations.

"You want well-rounded players that fit what you're doing", Colangelo said.

This trade is huge since Philadelphia also had number one pick in last year's National Basketball Association draft, where they drafted LSU star Ben Simmons. However, Sharman made eight all-star teams and won four National Basketball Association titles with the Celtics, and he and Bob Cousy are thought to be one of the one of the most accomplished backcourt tandems in league history.

A Trio's Tryst Leads to Fatal Brooklyn Stabbing
A man is in custody and another dead after a threesome in Brooklyn took a violent turn, police said Tuesday. "It's frightful . Investigators have not found any evidence to support that the sexual act was not consensual, police sources said.

Then they wouldn't agree to the trade unless they were able to meet with and work out Fultz at their facility, according to sources. Jahlil Okafor could also play as 2015's third overall pick.

Last season, Monk averaged 19.8 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game while shooting 45 percent from the field. But the addition of Fultz to a talented albeit unproven young core that includes Simmons, center Joel Embiid and power forward Dario Saric would certainly make the 76ers one of the NBA's most intriguing teams next season.
