Celtics trade No. 1 overall draft pick to 76ers

Report: Sixers to trade up for No. 1 pick. Here's what it means

In the announcement of their blockbuster trade with the Philadelphia 76ers, the Boston Celtics detailed the protections on the future first-round pick headed their way.

"We think it's very good value", Ainge said of the deal.

For years, Boston Celtics fans have been begging general manager Danny Ainge to reach into his precious treasure chest of valuable draft picks and package them for a star.

"We think there's a really good chance the player we take at 3 is the player we would have taken at 1."

Boston is expected to decide between a pair of highly regarded forwards, Kansas' Josh Jackson and Duke's Jayson Tatum.

"We are very pleased with the outcome of this trade, which puts us in the enviable position of selecting first overall in consecutive draft years", Philadelphia president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo said. After finishing with the No. 1 seed in the East this season, they are trying to package some of their picks for an established star that could help them close the gap on National Basketball Association finalists Cleveland and Golden State.

Boston has already been linked to names like Paul George and Jimmy Butler, while The Vertical's Chris Mannix mentioned Anthony Davis as a player it'd love to add. Ainge might cash in all of those chips sooner than we expected. The Celtics move down to number three and also land a "favorably-protected" future first round pick. They have a supremely talented young core, but will be relying on two players, Ben Simmons and presumably Markelle Fultz, who have yet to play a second in the National Basketball Association, plus another, Joel Embiid, with a long history of health issues.

Anytime a team is awarded the No. 1 overall pick in a draft, it's an incredible opportunity to snag the next Hall of Fame player.

In return, the Celtics will receive the 76ers' first-round pick this year - No. 3 overall - as well as one future first round pick.

Boston will receive the 2018 first-round pick of the Los Angeles Lakers - if that selection falls between the No 2 to No 5 range. "I'll say that. I like both of those kids". "We think the 76ers obviously wanted this No. 1 pick".

Griffin's departure comes three days before the draft - the Cavs are now without a pick - and on the eve of free agency.

The 19-year-old Fultz will join a line-up of young talent including 20-year-old Simmons, centres Joel Embiid and Jahlil Okafor, the No.3 picks in 2014 and 2015 respectively, plus Croatian forward Dario Saric.

Fultz averaged 23.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.9 assists in 25 games during his lone college season at Washington, excelling on a team that finished 9-22. It turns out Danny got even less than what we thought he was going to get on Friday.
