76ers, Celtics fans set to pack arena for draft

Boston, the first team to trade the No. 1 pick before or during the first round of the draft in 24 years, used the third overall pick to add small forward Jayson Tatum of Duke, one of the most polished scorers in college basketball.

It was long speculated that Fultz would end up in Boston, as the Celtics won this year's lottery for the top pick.

The Los Angeles Lakers took UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball with the second overall pick.

After that? No one seems to know what's going on.

As it stands at the moment, the 76ers own the No. 1, 36, 39, 46 and 50 overall picks in the 2017 NBA Draft. The team has been in need of a go-to scorer and can not head into next season relying on Joel Embiid when it is unclear how many games he will play. ESPN's Chad Ford reported the Sixers sent a future first-rounder to Orlando. Celtics President Danny Ainge said after making the trade he thought he could get the player he wanted two spots lower. She says Fultz has remained grounded despite the circus atmosphere. In addition, Hinkie acquired the 2019 Kings' pick in that trade and what will become the 2018 Lakers' pick in the Michael Carter-Williams-the-Milwaukee-Bucks trade, meaning his hands are all over this trade.

The Sixers have mastered the art of losing like few franchises in professional sports ever have over the last five years. Jackson is a defense-first swingman who struggles to create his own shot and has an in-progress jumper-the exact same type of player Boston selected previous year in Jaylen Brown. He should immediately make an impact with the Sixers and has the potential to be one of the best scoring guards in the National Basketball Association.

Golden State Warriors move one win away from record
The only question ahead of Friday night's Game 4 is whether or not they'll be the first team ever to be flawless in the playoffs. The last time the Warriors lost with Kevin Durant healthy was February 13 in Denver, prior to the All-Star break.

And while some people - among them, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver - may think the one-and-done system needs to be revamped, Calipari disagrees. The Suns picked fourth for the second straight year and selected Josh Jackson from Kansas.

Fultz, who just turned 19 on May 29th, averaged 23.2 points, 5.7 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.2 blocks per game as a freshman at Washington. It would take three more years, and a number of moves, for the Warriors to win it all.

"We felt like we were in the right position to make a deal". The Knicks spent the day shopping disgruntled Kristaps Porzingis, and might still work some sort of deal.

Don't be surprised if the run on freshman keeps going through the top 10. It's De'Aaron Fox, Dennis Smith and the rest of the talented point guards in the class. Along the way, Fox put on a dominating show against fellow star rookie point guard Lonzo Ball of UCLA.

"It's a good system with a lot of rules and placement", Ntilikina said of the triangle, per Scott Cacciola of the New York Times. He led the nation with 7.7 assists per game while quarterbacking the highest-scoring offense in Division I, and he scored consistently despite an unorthodox shot. "The great ones all have it, and we hope that by the way he plays, everyone else on our team becomes better".
