76ers take Fultz, Lakers grab Ball to start NBA draft

76ers take Fultz, Lakers grab Ball to start NBA draft 76ers take Fultz, Lakers grab Ball to start NBA draft

We have already coveredhow the Sixers fared at the 2017 NBA Draft, but let's take a look at some of the major trades and rumors from around the rest of the league and they could affect the Sixers.

A dependable scorer and hard-nosed defender, Butler gives Thibodeau an intriguing complement to the Wolves' young stars Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

The first seven picks of the draft entered as college freshman and 18-year-old Frenchman Frank Ntilikina was taken by the New York Knicks with the eighth choice. He addressed the obvious connection with another point guard the Sixers selected with a No. 1 pick, Hall of Famer Allen Iverson.

The Sixers might have to be patient again because Fultz and Simmons will not only be learning how to play together but will also be doing so while playing their first National Basketball Association minutes ever, after Simmons missed all of last season with a foot injury.

"It is a great opportunity", Fultz said.

Fultz said it's the pictures of the things that mean the most to him.

Minnesota Timberwolves - Word on the street coming into the draft was that Tom Thibodeau wanted to get a veteran to help Minnesota speed up its rebuilding process.

The Bulls wound up with Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen in the deal.

The 76ers needed a unique guard, someone who could run the point in place of Ben Simmons at times and also play off the ball with Simmons, with enough of a perimeter game to compensate for a Simmons weakness. "I just want to say this is truly an honor to come here".

It's the second straight year the 76ers have owned the first overall selection.

Following Friday's news conference to introduce the Sixers' four picks in Thursday night's NBA Draft, Harris said the organization is "focused on it".

Russell's movement to the Nets will open a door for the Lakers to get the number 2 pick, Lonzo Ball, though the team is not promising anything yet.

Markelle Fultz chats with National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver as Lonzo Ball (L) looks on. But don't get it twisted ladies and gents, Ball can Ball hard on the court.

The Celtics then took Duke's Jayson Tatum at No 3 after moving down two spots in the trade with Philadelphia, drawing cheers from a large contingent of their fans at Barclays Center wearing green. I'm pretty sure everybody knows what's going on right now. He did not make the varsity at DeMatha Catholic in Hyattsville, Md. until he grew from 5-9 to 6-3 in the summer between his sophomore and junior years. "As far as the future, my goal is to be the best that ever played".

For about a month, from the day of the NBA Draft Lottery until less than a week before the draft, it was assumed Markelle Fultz would be a Celtic.

"The NBA draft is so important because it changes the lives of so many young men across America and the world", he tells Newsbeat.

The Sixers can extend Embiid between July 1st up until the start of the regular season.
