Boston is expected to get another first-rounder from the 76ers, which is believed to be the 2018 pick that Philadelphia acquired from the Los Angeles Lakers. While the majority of the Celtics' offseason previously revolved around former Washington guard Markelle Fultz, Boston must now turn their attention toward another crop of players, as the former Huskies standout is nearly certainly coming off the board at No. 1 overall. The Lakers' pick in 2018 is protected Nos.
The trade is likely to be finalized Monday.
"If I'm running the floor or I'm setting the screen for him or giving it back, it doesn't matter", Fultzsaid during his predraft workout Saturday night with the Sixers.
Fultz - donning a Philadelphia cap as he arrived at the team's practice facility - visited the 76ers in a hastily arranged get-to-know-you session, with the workout and meeting with team officials on his itinerary.
"I think the tools that I have to be a defensive player will help them get out in transition", he said. That haul will give the Celtics an opportunity to package all those firsts and make a run at an established star player to go with their current core group, featuring All-Stars Isaiah Thomas and Al Horford, and second-year forward Jaylen Brown.
Ainge has exercised patience through several seasons in building the franchise back up after the dismantling of the Kevin Garnett-Paul Pierce-Ray Allen-Rajon Rondo Celtics, adding via trade and free agency while keeping his war chest of draft picks - majority acquired in the worst trade in league history with the Nets - in order to position the team for any trade should a superstar become available. Probably not a surprise when you sleep through a almost three-hour drive from his Upper Marlboro, Md. home to the court, then jog right out and start hoisting the basketball.
With the NBA Draft a few days away, there have been a ton of Lakers rumors to try and digest over the past few days. "Just being with a young team", Fultz said.

Fultz said he was trying not to pay much attention to the trade talk. "I'm a pretty good shot- blocker for a point guard". Fultz ended his freshman season averaging 23.2 points, 5.8 assists, 5.6 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks per game. "So a lot of my family can come out and just show love, and this city has great fans". Just last week, at his celebrity softball game, George told reporters that "I'm under contract as a Pacer". They finished 9-22 and rarely put up competitive efforts in Pac-12 play.
Durant and Beasley were both No. 2 draft picks.
It also would represent the fourth straight year the Sixers had a top 3 pick. Embiid and Saric were drafted during his time as GM, while years of tanking for the highest lottery odds resulted in Philadelphia finally landing the No. 1 overall pick last year and selecting Simmons. But with Fultz, Philadelphia - which has asked its fans to endure some dismal stretches and "Trust The Process" for the past few years - would likely expect to turn a real corner toward respectability again.
For starters, Fultz may be one of the most polished offensive players to come out of college in the past decade.
