Sixers move into position for top pick


One of the biggest rumors in the National Basketball Association right now is that the 76ers are looking to trade the number three overall pick to the Boston Celtics for the number one overall pick.

We caught up with elite players from the 2017 class and had them dish on who they would take at No. 1 based off seeing what they're capable of up close and personal over the years.

Jackson was asked if he was concerned whether the decision to skip a Celtics workout would affect him in Thursday night's National Basketball Association draft. According to Draft Express which listed mock drafts even before the trade happened where Philadelphia gets the No. 1 pick, Markelle Fultz is the solid choice, the only choice for the Boston Celtics.

"We felt like we were in the right position to make a deal".

"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. My concern was that Thomas wouldn't want the team to draft another point guard, and that he would instead choose to sign somewhere else as a free agent next summer. This only confirmed earlier rumors that Lonzo was looking forward to playing alongside Ben Simmons, the No. 1 pick in the 2016 draft. Fultz, who went to high school in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, led the Pac-12 in scoring and finished No. 6 among all Division I players.
