2017 NBA Draft: Order, picks for first and second rounds

When is the 2017 NBA draft

Another option behind this Celtics plan to stockpile more first-round picks is a possible run at Chicago Bulls star Jimmy Butler, according to ZagsBlog's Adam Zagoria. Wojnarowski reports that the Celtics will receive the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft, and either the Lakers' 2018 first-round pick or the Kings' 2019 first-round pick in exchange. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo's The Vertical reported that the framework within the deal was Philadelphia sending this year's third pick, an unprotected 2018 pick (which belongs to the Los Angeles Lakers), and a potential 2021 selection.

With just under a week left before the 2017 NBA Draft, the Butler-Celtics rumors are starting to flare up again. Jahlil Okafor's name was mentioned in at least one scenario, though other sources were less confident of the likelihood that happens. Fultz's versatility would allow him to work well alongside the 6-10 Simmons.

With his versatility, athleticism and skill, Fultz represents the end of the stop gaps at the point in Philly. He also showed that he is capable of creating for his teammates as well since he distributed 5.9 assists per game. The 76ers, with a core that includes Joel Embiid, Dario Saric, and Ben Simmons, could add another ball-handler, floor-spacer, and the top prospect in the draft in Fultz.

"Never know where I might land, so I just wanted to see how it is out here", Fultz told reporters.

Another source indicated if that deal occurs, it might not be until draft night. In 2014, he was playing junior varsity basketball in high school.

Before Friday, it was likely Fultz was going to be a Celtic. Colangelo, Brown, Eversley and Williams weren't there. He made 41.3 percent of his shots from the college 3-point range.

The trade would enable the Sixers to draft Fultz, who is said by many to be a flawless fit for the team.

Earlier, the Sixers worked out Kentucky guard De'Aaron Fox, projected to go either No. 4 to Phoenix or No. 5 to Sacramento on most boards.

However, I have the very unpopular opinion that Markelle Fultz should not be the undisputed best player in the draft. But sources confirmed Friday night that the Sixers, who now have the third pick, were in advanced talks with the Celtics for a swap. No players on either roster are thought to be involved. He gets to make his own legacy, which is part of what drew him to Washington in the first place. "On the court, it's debatable (how workouts change from team to team)".
