Duke's Tatum goes No. 3 to Celtics

By now the entire.

The Philadelphia 76ers' newest addition posted a photo to Instagram with a caption that was clearly planned ahead for after he was picked.

In a blockbuster trade days before the draft, the Boston Celtics traded the first pick in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft for the third selection owned by the Philadelphia 76ers.

While the particulars of the possible trade are still being discussed, Boston will likely have to include the number three pick - Jayson Tatum - in a deal for George.

The draft aired live on ESPN from Brooklyn, New York, in front of an audience of hundreds of fans.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, Washington had the worst winning percentage for a team with that year's No. 1 National Basketball Association draft pick since the common draft era began in 1966. "But it was just scheduling issues and it was a little delayed for me to get out there". They're big on defense, so I think the tools that I have to be a defensive player will help them get out in transition. Why not get a basketball and put it on the shoe?

Though Fultz heads what's widely regarded as a strong draft class, the young stars have had to share the spotlight this week with veterans who are - or could be - on the move.

The Bulls traded Jimmy Butler and their 16th pick to Minnesota for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the TimberWolves' seventh pick, two people told The Associated Press.

"I've been seeing a lot of insane things".

Colangelo and Brown said they expect Turkish shooting guard Furkan Korkmaz, a 2016 first-rounder who spent 10 days with the current Sixers earlier this month, to join the Sixers for the 2017-18 campaign despite a $2 million buyout with Anadolu Efes in Istanbul. "With Earvin's vision and his persona, I think the organization is really taking on that positive joy that he seems to live with every day".

Things are expected to settle down a bit for at least the first two picks.

It's the second straight season the 76ers have selected first in the draft.

"It would mean a lot to play for my hometown and learn from the best point guard ever", Ball said. "Once he figured out I had a chance to go there, he started showing more love and everything like that".

Many of them, as usual lately, are freshmen.

Derrick White (Colorado), Wesley Iwundu (Kansas State) and Josh Hart (Villanova) are among the seniors who could - emphasis could - go late in the first round.

In order to account for some extreme outliers, here is a look at the median career Win Shares at each pick in the first round.

But they should be able to find someone good Thursday.

"We're going to keep driving to get it flawless", Colangelo said.

"What scares me about Fultz is his one-and-done team resume at Washington", Brookover wrote.
