He can get to the basket and shoot from outside. Thus, it did not make much sense to draft a point guard.

Fultz ended his freshman season averaging 23.2 points, 5.8 assists, 5.6 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks per game.

The Celtics face the impending free agencies of their three top guards - Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley and Marcus Smart - next summer, meaning this is their best chance to strike it big on the free agent market.

When Fultz arrived from his home in Maryland at the facility, he was wearing a black 76ers hat and there was an overflow media crowd taking pictures. In exchange, the Sixers will send the Celtics their first-round pick from Thursday's draft (No. 3 overall), plus first-rounders in 2018 (originally a Lakers pick) and 2019 (a Kings pick), The Vertical reported.

In the proposed deal, Boston would acquire Philadelphia's No. 3 overall pick in 2017 in a package that includes a future first from the 76ers, sources said.

The Celtics also will also receive one of two future first round picks from the 76ers.

In May, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Lowry was "interested" in playing for the Sixers and the front office was planning to offer him a "lucrative contract" in the offseason. I wake up every morning and get ready to go to the gym.

You always have to take National Basketball Association trade rumors with a grain of salt because you're likely going to hear a bunch of them throughout the offseason. The Lakers pick has been part of the discussion with Boston, according to the report. That's how highly I think of Fultz.

"I had some stuff going on with my knee - I don't really want to address it", Fultz said. Going after Jimmy Butler, still an ascending player with slightly lesser talent, is likely the Celtics' goal.

This, however, was not Fultz's first interaction with Sixers brass.

"I come to Philly a lot", he said after his workout. "The upside of it would be insane". He tweeted a photo later Saturday, standing alongside Fultz and Sixers players Ben Simmons and Robert Covington. The 19-year-old worked out for Philadelphia on Saturday as the deal was in the works.

"It would be great", Fultz said."Get up and down".

The NBA Draft is Thursday at 7 p.m.

Paul George to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018 is one of the rumors that keep popping up.
