The Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics have agreed on a deal that will send the No. 1 overall pick in Thursday’s Draft to Philly in exchange for the third overall pick and at least one future first-round pick, per a league source. Do the Celtics just not see much of a difference between Markelle Fultz and Josh Jackson/Jayson Tatum? Perhaps, and if that’s the case, it makes perfect sense to move down and pick up a valuable asset. Or, are the Celtics trying to accumulate as many picks as possible in order to make a big trade.
