The Boston Celtics have agreed to trade the first overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft to the Philadelphia 76ers, according to David Aldridge of TNT. If the 2018 Lakers pick falls to between 2-5 in next year's draft, the pick goes to the Celtics.

The Lakers possess the second pick in Thursday's draft and it is likely the franchise will be choosing between Ball, the former UCLA point guard, Kansas forward Josh Jackson and Kentucky point guard De'Aaron Fox.

Butler would instantly make the Celtics legitimate contenders to LeBron James in the East. Butler, Isaiah Thomas, Al Horford and their extreme depth behind them would undoubtedly put up a big fight against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Celtics doing the right thing? Boston's surplus of useful wings could be part of Danny Ainge positioning himself for another blockbuster deal, but let's not rule out the possibility that he's become addicted to kicking the ball down the road. Many had their own theories about what's next for the Celtics as they load up picks, while others focused more on the excitement of Fultz likely heading to Philadelphia in a few weeks.

In his first and last season with the Washington Huskies, Fultz proved quickly why he is considered the No. 1 overall prospect in the draft. Assuming this trade were to happen, it is possible that the 76ers would give the Celtics the third-overall pick while also giving them another draft pick.

The Sixers look like they will be in good shape moving forward. With Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Dario Saric already in place, this was the time for the Sixers to start cashing in some of the assets they acquired in order to get some special talent to Philadelphia.

One source close to the talks expressed confidence Friday that the deal would go through, telling ESPN "they are swapping 1 and 3". He will make $6.26 million next season, which could be his last in Boston. Fultz was late for the workout because he got stuck in traffic. Jackson averaged 16.3 points and 7.4 rebounds per game with the 31-5 Jayhawks.

Fultz, 19, is attractive because he can play point and shooting guard.

It has seemed as if the Lakers have been trying to move away from the inevitable Lonzo Ball for a while now.
