What the Philadelphia 76ers should do with their second-round draft picks

According to Yahoo Sports, the Sixers would send the Celtics the No. 3 pick and the 2018 first round pick that belongs to the Los Angeles Lakers, in exchange for the No. 1 pick. We both compete for the same position.
In their only Pac-12 matchup, Fultz scored 25 points on 9-for-19 shooting and Ball converted 7 of 12 shots for 22 points. Here the 45 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft was able to show a little bit more of what he could do as he averaged 14.8 points per game for the season. I haven't done the research to back this up, but I'm gonna go ahead and say no other team except perhaps the Los Angeles Lakers can make a similar claim.
But here we are, sifting through the madness after a picture of Markelle Fultz next to a auto with the license plate "BCeltic" hit Twitter on Friday.
With all that being said, taking Fultz would still be the better option and the Celtics can not pass up such an elite talent at No. 1.
"A number of agents have expressed concerns that the Celtics might not have enough playing time for their clients to develop properly, given the depth and experience of their roster", Ford wrote, noting former UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball canceled his workout with Boston. But whether he plays for the Celtics, Lakers, 76ers, or some other National Basketball Association team is still a question mark in my mind.
In return, Boston would reportedly receive the No. 3 overall pick and future picks. Fultz offered high marks on his 3-point range, finishing, execution on pick-and-roll drills and overall work ethic.
All aboard the insane 2017 NBA Draft rumor train! "I guess when your son is a lottery pick, that gives you a lot of confidence". Both the Celtics and Lakers have good production in the backcourt already.
-Indiana Pacers guard Monta Ellis and Detroit Pistons guard Reggie Bullock were each suspended five games without pay for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy, the league announced. "Never know where I might land, so just wanted to see how it is out here".
"Really to me it doesn't matter; wherever I go I'm going to be the same guy", Fultz said. "Of course coming here with the Hollywood life, it would be great publicity and my brand out there and building myself".
Ball gets his second workout for L.A. Friday, hoping to convince the organization that he's their best choice.
