The Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics have agreed to a trade that will send the No. 1 pick in the draft to the Sixers, who intend to select Markelle Fultz, according to TNT's David Aldridge.
A storm of reports trickled out late Friday afternoon linking the two teams via trade. The Celtics will reportedly receive the No. 3 pick in this year's draft in addition to an undisclosed future first round draft pick from Philly. The Sixers holds a host of future draft assets, including the Lakers' 2018 first-round selection and the Kings' 2019 first-rounder. The Sixers also hold their own first-rounders in those drafts.
Fultz, the talented guard out of Washington who has long been the presumptive No. 1 pick in the draft, worked out for the Sixers on Saturday instead of a previously scheduled meeting with the Celtics.
Boston has been linked to Kansas forward Josh Jackson at No. 3. The Lakers are sandwiched between the two teams and have interest in Jackson at No. 2, among other prospects.
