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

Fultz goes No. 1 in the 2017 NBA Draft

Fultz goes No. 1 in the 2017 NBA Draft

According to reports, Fultz felt like he belonged in Boston, but rumors circulated that the Celtics were not sold on the guard following his pre-draft workout.

To make matters worse, if Tatum turns out to be the piece Boston is unwilling to part with in a trade for George or even rising New York Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis, the forward will have enormous expectations to live up to in a city that expects championships.

In the biggest move of the night, the team acquired Chicago Bulls All-Star Jimmy Butler for former UCLA guard Zach LaVine, guard Kris Dunn and Markkanen.

As of late Thursday night, talks between Boston and IN for a trade sending superstar Paul George to the Celtics-and potentially Tatum to the Pacers-had cooled.

In the National Basketball Association draft's first unscripted moment, the Boston Celtics took Jayson Tatum of Duke with the third pick.

But after I spent most of Thursday evening watching NBA draft coverage on Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia rather than ESPN or the NBA Network, I changed my mind.

The trade is very important for the Lakers in order to dispose long-term salaries off its shoulder and also to be able to finally get an additional first round pick. "You really had no choice but to get better because they were so enthusiastic about it - that whole year, them developing me and my whole game, the mental side too". They needed a second scoring option and Tatum should be a ideal offensive player. Fultz led the Pac-12 in scoring, finished No. 6 among all Division I players, and was the top freshman scorer in the country.

"We like [Jayson's] size, length, rebounding, shooting, intelligence, character", Ainge told reporters after the draft. Where is Markannen going to play?

The 19-year-old Tatum averaged 16.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists during his one season at Duke.

Sacramento was the only team with two lottery picks. The Trail Blazers had the opportunity to draft talented players to improve at multiple positions.

"He used to tweet and retweet my stuff", Fultz said.

The Washington Post has a fantastic, in depth recap of the real winners and losers of the 2017 NBA Draft, but the real victor of every NBA Draft ever is this guy who pretended to be a drafted NBA player for drinks and ladies' phone numbers.

For considering trading Kristaps Porzingis, the only good thing left in their Godforsaken franchise.

Derrick White, who went to the Spurs, and Josh Hart, who went to the Lakers, had to wait until the last two picks of round number one to hear their names called.

"Each year I'm going to try to learn as much as I can from him".

After the Knicks selected promising French guard Ntilikina, who is flying right back to Strausbourg to help his club try to win their league championship, two other global players were taken in the first round. They also threw in a future pick that can be used in either the 2018 or the 2019 season. Los Angeles Lakers (proposed trade: rights to Jazz) - Tony Bradley 29.
