Celtics, Sixers deal to be finalized today.
The Boston Celtics have reportedly agreed to trade the #1 overall pick in Thursday's NBA Draft to the Philadelphia Sixers in exchange for Philly's #3 overall pick as well as additional future first rounders.
The two teams have allegedly agreed to terms of the deal which is expected to be finalized and officially announced later today.
According to ESPN, Philadelphia, on top of its No. 3 overall pick, is sending the 2018 first-round pick it owns via the Lakers, which the Sixers acquired from Phoenix at the 2015 trade deadline.
However, if that Lakers pick doesn't fall between #2 and #5 in the 2018 draft, the Sixers will instead send a 2019 first round pick to Boston that it acquired from the Kings.
University of Washington guard Markelle Fultz worked out for the Sixers over the weekend, and will be their first pick in the June 22nd NBA Draft.
