Celtics' Danny Ainge confident he will get his guy at No. 3

The 76ers are expected to make point guard Markelle Fultz the fourth number one pick in club history and the second in a row after taking Australian Ben Simmons a year ago. If the pick does not convey from the Lakers next summer, Boston will have two chances to land a lottery pick the following year. The Celtics probably want a more transcendent player with the No. 3 pick - if they don't trade it, that is - but National Basketball Association observers believe the 19-year-old could grow into his body and become a force close to the rim. 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. Barely three years later, he's nearly certainly going to become the No. 1 pick - and if he gets to start his pro career by calling Philadelphia his new home, he'll be living roughly a 2 1/2-hour drive from his hometown of Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

The 76ers have a top-three pick for the fourth straight year: No. 3 Joel Embiid in 2014, No. 3 Jahlil Okafor in 2015 and Simmons in 2016. The speculation is Philadelphia will choose 6-foot-4 guard Markelle Fultz, who worked out for the 76ers at the team's Camden training complex Saturday night.

If the Sixers go through with their promise to select him, they will now have a scoring guard that can make plays and a passing forward that can be a scoring threat, making them a ideal complement to each other night in and night out.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for the Mueller team, declined to comment. "I don't care who Trump hires". Attacking the idea that the president tried to obstruct the investigation also seems key.

We won't officially know where any players are going until the draft kicks off on June 22nd, but at this moment the first pick appears to be all but a done deal.

"The odds are in your favor at No. 1 more so than in any other (draft) position", Colangelo said during a news conference Monday afternoon.

Regardless of what moves they eventually decide to make, the trade between Boston and Philly will certainly solidify a long-standing rivalry to return back to its competitive days.

"We haven't taken a step outside the draft", Colangelo said.

Fultz averaged 23.2 points, 5.9 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 1.6 steals over 25 games last season for the University of Washington Huskies, who went 9-22. During his visit, the 19-year-old was seen wearing a Philadelphia cap, and even took a photo with Embiid, Simmons, and Robert Covington. For now, Boston has seven first-round selections in the next three years. "But to have two quality (first-round picks) in '18 and two quality firsts in '19, there are only so many picks that can be made with the roster spots that you have".

"I think he's super talented", said Bird, who played against Fultz in a Pac-12 game this season.
