76ers get No. 1 pick from Celtics, chance to draft Fultz

Face Off: Josh Jackson vs. Jayson Tatum

The Philadelphia 76ers just traded with the Boston Celtics for the 1st overall pick in this year's NBA Draft.

"You might see us, if the opportunity presents itself to add the key piece now, you have to take advantage of those opportunities when they present themselves". As for the Celtics, they add to the absurd war chest of first round draft picks accumulated (nine draft picks in the first rounds of the next two drafts) which they will nearly certainly be using as an all-out assault on bringing in existing franchise talent. The Celtics are in a great position now since they have another future first-round pick and they secured a top three pick in this very special draft.

"I think he's supertalented, superexplosive", said Cal guard Jabari Bird of Pac-12 rival Fultz following Monday's Sixers workout.

The Chicago Bulls had been in talks with the Boston Celtics about a possible trade for Jimmy Butler, but they aren't the only ones.

"We think there's a really good chance the player we'll take at three is the same player we would have taken at one", Ainge said.

Lonzo Ball of UCLA is expected to go No. 2 to the Lakers, although the sides have yet to reach agreement on a deal.

And then come the Celtics, starting the real intrigue. But apparently the feeling wasn't mutual, if you believe Danny Ainge.

Bullard says current rate likely appropriate for forecast horizon
Bullard, who regards the economy as stuck in a low-growth rut, said he sees little reason to rush the process. "The earliest you would have meaningful impact is the second half of 2018 or into 2019".

"He's so young. I think he's a special talent". "I'll say that. I like both of those kids".

Coverage for the National Basketball Association draft begins at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday on ESPN, with the Sixers set to pick first for the second year in a row.

Dethroned last week as National Basketball Association champions, the Cleveland Cavaliers are stepping into a summer already off to a odd start.

While owner Dan Gilbert values Griffin and his leadership, the billionaire businessman is hands-on with his basketball team and has shown a willingness to keep his line of executives moving.

"On behalf of the entire organization, I would like to thank Griff for his leadership and many contributions during his time here, including most recently, his role in the franchise's first NBA Championship", Gilbert said in a statement.

If the Lakers, 76ers and Kings all make rapid improvements - or if the Lakers simply win next year's lottery - this trade could look pretty bad for the Celtics when all is said and done. If that ends up being the top pick or lower than five, the Sixers keep it and the Celtics will receive a 2019 first rounder. Griffin has been Cleveland's full-time GM for three years, promoted from vice president of basketball operations in May 2014 after serving on an interim basis for three months when Chris Grant was sacked. Wiggins wasn't traded until late August, almost two months after the draft - when the Cavs finally reached an agreement to acquire Kevin Love.
