Fultz led the way, walking into the arena in Brooklyn with orange shoes that were made out of basketballs.
In a piece written for The Player’s Tribune, the newly drafted No. 1 pick explained how he learned he was headed to Philadelphia to workout for the 76ers on June 16.
The Raptors selected OG Anunoby with the No. 23 overall pick of the draft.

Celtics receive: #3 overall pick (Jayson Tatum), 2018 Lakers 1st round pick if it falls between pick 2-5, and 2019 Kings 1st round pick (#1 protected) if Lakers pick doesn’t convey. That’s two first-overall picks and two third-overall picks from the past four NBA Drafts.
Fultz found out that Philly has six of the popular food chain establishments.
I really hate saying any kid who goes back to school is a “loser” or made a mistake, but this certainly feels that way. LaVar Ball had said his son would only play for the Lakers, and it was clear that would happen when Lonzo got a phone call with the Lakers on the clock. It’s also worth noting that Evans and Thornwell fell further on draft boards than most analysts expected, so they can reasonably seen as low-risk, medium-reward additions.
Simmons missed his rookie season with a broken right foot.
“Everybody knows A.I.is known for the crossover and they love him here and a chance to come here and he [too] was the No. 1 pick is kind of insane”, Fultz said. “Sometimes I’ll be on the ball, sometimes I’ll be off”.
Fans in Philadelphia are as excited as they’ve been about the Sixers in at least a decade, and who can blame them?
Future endorsement? Maybe. But by the looks of it, Fultz seriously loves him some Chick-fil-A in the mornings. “And trying to identify veterans that have the ability to nurture and help those three, especially, is one of the main priorities”. After a rough year in Minnesota (take notice, Sixers fans), the Wolves will have increased expectations in 2017-18.
They’d ordered Chick-fil-A. It was there waiting for me on a table.
Sacramento sent Portland the 10th pick (forward Zach Collins) for the 15th (forward Justin Jackson) and 20th picks (center Harry Giles). Giving up on Dunn after only one year was a risky move, but getting Butler is a home-run pickup that will launch them into the playoff discussion immediately next season. Second-round picks Jonah Bolden and power forward Mathias Lessort out of France also won’t join the team next season. Well, actually, on top of all that, the Timberwolves still have plenty of cap space to chase down another top free agent this summer – is this the year they finally make their big jump?
