By adding Fultz to a core that already includes Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Dario Saric, the Sixers have fulfilled the process began by now-internet deity Sam Hinkie, whose seeds reap rewards in his absence - and even though it may not be to his liking. The 76ers are not the only people excited about the swap with Boston, Fultz also appears to be in great spirits.

By trading away the No. 1pick, the Celtics would pass on Fultz who is expected to be a future superstar but a possibility of landing Josh Jackson a swingman from Kansas at No. 3 is quite appealing for the Celtics who need help at the wing position more than they do in the backcourt. In fact, Johnson was so impressed after Fultz's workout with the Lakers earlier this week, it was reported that the Lakers President was "in love" with Fultz.

The Golden State Warriors may have regained the National Basketball Association (NBA) title, but the Boston Celtics will be the league's most intriguing team over the next few weeks. The official announcement is expected Monday.

"[The last few days have] been insane, man", Fultz said.

Philadelphia invited presumptive No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz into town for a workout over the weekend. "I'm close to home". According to CBS Sports, Jackson becoming No. 3 will depend on who Magic Johnson will choose as the Lakers' No. 2 pick.

After working out for the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, guard Markelle Fultz said he wanted to get some cheesesteaks.

The Philadelphia 76ers are reportedly out of the running for point guard Kyle Lowry, an impending unrestricted free agent, after reaching an agreement with the Boston Celtics to acquire the first overall pick in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft. If it does not, the Celtics will instead receive either Sacramento's or Philadelphia's first-round pick in 2019, whichever is more favorable.

The Celtics can also deal the pick, and future picks for a coveted player such as Anthony Davis or Jimmy Butler, who may still be drawing interest from Danny Ainge in a potential trade for No. 3.

"I'm definitely going to get some cheesesteaks from somewhere", Fultz told reporters after working out for the 76ers.

"I let God take care of it", he said. "I don't really pay attention to everything that's going on".

Fultz's arrival was rather stylish, leaving his auto with a Sixers cap on his head. Plus, The Vertical reports that his camp probably wouldn't have allowed the visit without a promise of a deal.

"He and I have been talking before when I was in college", Fultz said.

Boston has made it known that they want to be players in the sweepstakes for Utah Jazz star Gordon Hayward to reunite him with Brad Stevens, his college coach at Butler. "That's all it was".

As for the likely top choice in this week's draft, it's unfair to simply state Fultz's college record previous year, 9-22, as a negative.

The first report came late Saturday night, then came the confirmations, this reporter included.
