Sixers take Fultz with top pick of youthful Draft

Sixers sell out tickets

Only two seniors went in the first round - the lowest number in the modern history of the draft.

The 2017 NBA Draft is all wrapped up, and most of the draft went as planned such as Markelle Fultz joining "The Process" in Philly, Lonzo Ball's destiny to become a Laker came true, etc.

To make matters worse, the Trail Blazers selected another big man with the 26th pick in the draft.

Already under a lot of scrutiny, Phil Jackson has chose to follow the trend that the Knicks been known for around this time of the year.

For one thing, one player couldn't do it.

That's a trend that could slow down after this year.

National Basketball Association champion Golden State and Cleveland didn't have a pick in the two-round draft, though the Warriors acquired the rights to second-rounder Jordan Bell from Chicago. He was selected third-team All-American by The Associated Press. The Knicks selected Frank Ntilikina out of France with the No. 28 pick.

At that moment, the surrealness of the night seemed to hit Jones. There have been more cheers than booing from the crowd in Brooklyn.

No. 4 pick Josh Jackson and the Phoenix Suns will open against No. 5 pick De'Aaron Fox and the Sacramento Kings at 7:30 p.m. July 7 at the T&M.

The first surprise might have been Malik Monk falling out of the top 10.

Nelson Van Denburg Campbell Wealth Management Grp has invested 0.01% of its portfolio in EQT Midstream Partners LP (NYSE: EQM ). ValuEngine downgraded EQT Midstream Partners, from a "buy" rating to a "hold" rating in a research note on Friday, June 2nd.

Butler will be reunited with coach Tom Thibodeau, who coached him previously in Chicago.

The Kings gambled by trading Zach Collins, the 10th selection in the draft, and Sac-town very well could have drafted three future starters.

Could it be that Fultz's arrival means The Process is finished? In addition to Fultz, the Sixers got the draft rights to the 25th overall pick, center Anzejs Pasecniks from BC VEF Riga (Latvia), from Orlando in exchange for a future protected first-round pick from Oklahoma City and the lesser of the 2020 second round choice from Brooklyn or the 2020 second-round pick from NY.

It marks the fourth straight year the Blue Devils have produced a top-three pick.

Fultz, a native of Upper Marlboro, Md., played his scholastic basketball at DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Md. The Sixers are committed to keeping him in South Philly.

Fultz says that he does not like to celebrate because his mother taught him to stay humble when things are going well, but that this is a time where he can not help but take in the moment.

After the 76ers selected Fultz, the Los Angeles Lakers took Lonzo Ball with the No. 2 pick.

Washington's Markelle Fultz smiles for a selfie with a television commentator after being selected by the Philadelphia 76ers as the No. 1 pick overall during the NBA basketball draft, Thursday, June 22, 2017, in NY. Fultz was sixth in the country in scoring (23.2 ppg.) and averaged 5.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds per game, while shooting 47.3 percent overall and 41.3 percent from 3-point range.

Even though the Celtics didn't make a trade, Boston still has potential trade chips if they wanted to. Fultz played just 25 games in college and said that it had been his dream to be the top pick at the National Basketball Association draft.

"When you look at the combination of Ben and Markelle", Brown said, "we will grow those young players, allow them to co-exist and let them grow with each other".
