Celtics trade No. 1, expect to get man

Celtics trade No. 1, expect to get man

The Boston Celtics have officially traded the number one overall pick in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft to the Philadeplhia 76ers.

The Los Angeles Lakers' 2018 first-round pick (which the Sixers now own the rights to) if it ends up being pick 2, 3, 4, or 5 overall. For the Celtics, they stand to get a top pick anyway which could be used on either Lonzo Ball or De'Aaron Fox once the NBA Draft comes kicks off on June 22. "They're getting the player they want", he said. Fultz, who is a point guard out of the University of Washington, is considered by many to be the most talented player in the draft.

The best fit, however, in this year's draft could be the No. 5 pick. 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.

In summary, the Celtics get a heap of picks and the 76ers get their point guard of the future in Fultz.

With 94,800 avg volume, 9 days are for Kirklands Incorporated (NASDAQ:KIRK)'s short sellers to cover KIRK's short positions. On average, analysts predict that Home Depot, Inc. will post $7.24 earnings per share for the current fiscal year.

"History suggests that No. 1 has the greatest odds of producing franchise-level talent, and we are confident that this year's draft class has that very potential", Sixers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo said.

That could lend credence to rumors last week that the Celtics were intrigued by Kansas small forward Josh Jackson and possibly were ready to take him at No. 1. If Ainge is to be believed, even they don't know who they will take at No. 3 - but he insisted that whichever choice they make there would have been the choice they made at No. 1 if this deal hadn't gone down. But the only way a deal can go down between the two is something tempting.

Maybe Ainge is just bullshitting here in order to protect himself from criticism in the event that Fultz turns out to be a superstar, or maybe he really was going to shock everyone and take Josh Jackson or Jayson Tatum with the first pick.

"I think they're both terrific players", Ainge said. "I can't imagine a team with LeBron James or Curry or Harden or Westbrook being that bad regardless of the supporting cast around them". With the Celtics attempting to build a championship caliber team in the near future, the team will look to use its assets to create a win now team.

Officials said schools in Trinidad will close Tuesday and government offices in the sister island of Tobago will be shuttered. Parishes along the coast made sandbags - or sand and bags - available to people who wanted to protect homes and businesses.

Which pick the Celtics will receive in 2018 or 2019 is a bit complicated.

If the Celtics never planned on taking Fultz, the trade for future draft picks was a logical decision.

Boston has already been linked to names like Paul George and Jimmy Butler, while The Vertical's Chris Mannix mentioned Anthony Davis as a player it'd love to add. Ainge might cash in all of those chips sooner than we expected. We watched the same Finals that everybody did.

And through all the trials and tribulations, it seems that the Sixers will finally get their man, and their second-straight number one overall pick. NBA.com says the news came from "league sources", while the one from Los Angeles Times only said Boston and Philadelphia "agreed in principle".
