NBA draft draws second-largest audience on ESPN

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Markelle Fultz already has his first turnover as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers.

However, the thought in the weeks leading up to the draft was that the Boston Celtics would take the former Washington point guard with their top selection, but instead, they traded the No. 1 pick to the Philadelphia 76ers for the No. 3 selection and a future first-rounder. "@Tissot.us is helping me get started with my (team name) watch", Fultz posted, not bothering to actually fill in the blanks.

"I am serious when I say that [the 76ers can reach the postseason]", said in his introductory news conference on Friday. "That's what I'm capable of doing". Fultz and Pasecniks, though, even if the latter will especially need more time. He was a finalist for the John R. Wooden Award, which has been presented each season to the outstanding college basketball player of the year. In his lone season under Sean Miller, the seven-footer was a key cog in the Wildcats' run in the PAC-12 and NCAA tournaments. He was selected third-team All-American by The Associated Press.

The Sixers traded a top-20 protected 2020 first-round selection and a 2020 second-rounder to the Magic for Pasecniks, a 7-foot-1, 220-pounder. With a lot of young talent surrounding him, Ball will be able to help those players grow. Not only is the collegiate class abnormally strong, but last year's number one pick - Ben Simmons - will add yet another generational talent to a draft that could feasibly yield a handful of special players. When he heard the news that he was working out for the Sixers, Fultz's first thought was about fast-food chicken sandwiches.

At the very least, the Sixers grabbed the Warriors' attention.

Last night, 60 college and global prospects were selected in the NBA Draft where they will start the next chapter of their basketball careers.

Now that Simmons and Fultz are on the roster, the question is, how will all the pieces - including center Joel Embiid - fit together?

LaVine is as exciting as a player as any young talent in the National Basketball Association, but he'll enter the season coming off a brutal ACL tear that ended his year prematurely. "I'm going to come in, work as hard as I can". "Everything else is going to pay off".

He's not particularly a good shooter, but he can get some rebounds and dish it out to make the right plays. Now, he's moving to the next level.

"When you look at the makeup of our team", Colangelo said. The problem for any player looking to make it a free and open market is the inability to create leverage.

"This city has to feel fantastic, " coach Brett Brown said. Where is Markannen going to play? I wouldn't have made that move if I didn't think I could use that money. He is a bit raw and needs to get stronger, but he's mobile, plays above the rim, can shoot the ball and sets solid screens. That's this guy (Markelle) right here. He can score in a variety of ways.
