The Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers have been involved in intense trade talks for the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft. It would seem that the two sides have come to an agreement after presumed top pick Markelle Fultz has a mostly medical workout for the 76ers.
And for confirmation, we have the Woj himself:
The 76ers are going to give up this year’s third overall pick as well as a future first rounder in 2021 and the Lakers pick they own next year — which may have some protections on it. Celtics general manager Danny Ainge seems to have once again gotten the better end of a trade deal as he will have more assets than anyone else would know what to do with at this point. Not to mention he will still get a pretty great player at No. 3 overall this season who could help make an immediate impact on the team.
