The chatter around the NBA has been through the roof throughout the week about a possible deal between the Celtics and the 76ers for the No. 1 pick.
Now, it appears the rumors can be put to rest.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a deal.
Trade between Philly and Boston will be finalized on Monday, per source. Sides have agreed. Sixers will get first pick and take Fultz.— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) June 18, 2017
According to David Aldridge, the Sixers and Celtics have indeed reached an agreement on a deal, which will give the 76ers the No. 1 overall pick in next week's NBA Draft.
To no surprise, Philly will be taking Washington's Markelle Fultz with the No. 1 pick, per Aldridge. And what will the Celtics be getting in return for sending away their coveted spot at the top?
Thanks, Woj: the No. 3 pick, a first-round pick in 2018 and a 2019 first-rounder.
This deal has been in the works over the past couple of days and certainly reached new heights this weekend. Fultz had a workout with the 76ers on Saturday and he looked right at home with his potential future teammates.
The future is certainly now looking even brighter for the team from the City of Brotherly Love.
What's that, 76ers fans? Oh no, you didn't think I'd finish this story without saying it: Trust The Process.
