76ers take Fultz, Lakers grab Ball to start NBA draft

The performance at Washington capped a meteoric rise on the amateur level for Fultz.

The Sixers used a series of moves to jump up and snag the No. 1 pick, previously held by the Boston Celtics.

Monk fits perfectly next to Kemba Walker, an established scorer who struggled as the only scorer on the team last season.

The Minnesota Timberwolves drafted Lauri Markkanen with the No. 7 pick. The deal was first reported on Saturday and when it was apparent the trade was going to occur, Fultz quickly worked out for the 76ers after a short drive from Maryland. "I'm pretty good", Fultz wrote.

I don't know how they knew, but they knew.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Markelle Fultz already has his first turnover as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers. Simmons injured a foot in training camp and never played while the Sixers improved their win total by 18 games to 28.

"Joel will come out and [say] something similar", said Brown, who watched both Simmons and Embiid get a workout in at the facility. No other U.S. university player averaged 14 points with six rebounds and six assists a game as well.

Magic Johnson chose to stay home and drafted Lonzo Ball from out of UCLA with the #2 pick. While most will agree that dumping the promising D'Angelo Russell just to get out from under Timofey Mozgov's contract wasn't ideal, the Lakers made their extra picks count.

Duke's Jason Tatum was taken by the Celtics with pick No. 3, while the Suns took Josh Jackson from Kansas. The freshman sensation averaged 16.8 points and 7.8 rebounds for the ACC powerhouse.

The (City) and two (team name) mentions should show you just how silly the marketing around major sporting events can be.

Frank Ntilikina saw his dream come true: He's a top-10 pick in the National Basketball Association draft. The run of freshmen bettered the 2014 record of four consecutive first-year players to start the draft, finally ending when the New York Knicks took French guard Frank Ntilikina at No. 8. Charlotte Hornets - Malik Monk 12. An sensational passer, quick and elusive guard, Fox averaged 16.7 points and 4.6 assist a night for Coach Cal. Detroit Pistons - Luke Kennard 13.

He is also a fan of posting trick shots to social media. Miami Heat - Bam Adebayo 15.

Gonzaga's Zach Collins a freshmen forward was picked No. 10 by Sacramento, but was then traded to Portland.

The 19-year-old Fultz, who is the club's fourth top overall pick, averaged 23.2 points, 5.9 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 1.6 steals over 25 games last season for a Huskies team that was 9-22. It matches the third-highest rated NBA Draft on ESPN.
