- Boston will get Philadelphia’s No3 pick and additional first-rounder
- Philly set to pick up No1 overall pick for second year in succession
Philadelphia and Boston have agreed in principle on a trade where the 76ers would acquire the chance to take Markelle Fultz with the No1 pick in Thursday’s NBA draft, a source has told the Associated Press.
The Celtics will get the No3 pick, plus an additional first-rounder in either 2018 or 2019, according to the source. The agreement between the Celtics and 76ers was struck not long after Fultz worked out for Philadelphia. Once the trade goes through, Philadelphia will own the NBA’s No1 selection for the second straight season.
