The trade is very important for the Lakers in order to dispose long-term salaries off its shoulder and also to be able to finally get an additional first round pick. In addition to Fultz, the Sixers got the draft rights to the 25th overall pick, center Anzejs Pasecniks from BC VEF Riga (Latvia), from Orlando in exchange for a future protected first-round pick from Oklahoma City and the lesser of the 2020 second round choice from Brooklyn or the 2020 second-round pick from NY. "I just want to say this is truly an honor to come here". Below is what they will now be known as.

The 6-foot-4 guard became the second consecutive No. 1 overall pick by Philadelphia, following forward Ben Simmons past year.

Joel Embiid has only played 31 games so far in his National Basketball Association career, but in those games he looked to be living up to the hype surrounding him when he entered the league.

Embiid's presence will certainly open up things for not only Fultz and Simmons but also Dario Saric, who got better on both ends of the floor as the season progressed. How coach (Brett Brown) mixes and matches those pieces is going to be up to him. We aren't there yet though, and Durant is here to remind us we might need to pump the brakes a little. Aside from his quickness, high basketball IQ, and elite motor skills, Fultz hit a 41.3% rate from deep along with a combined 2.8 steals and blocks per game which underscores his two-way skills.

The 76ers had the No. 1 pick for the second straight year after trading with the Boston Celtics on Monday.

The Sixers kept the project rolling later in the first round, striking a deal with Orlando to acquire the 25th pick, center Anzejs Pasecniks from Latvia.

"You realize he's got the chip, but he doesn't go out of his way to show it", Colangelo said.

The Huskies dismal record during Fultz's freshman year caused more than a few scouts to question his competitive fire and whether he can make a team better. I found out last Friday morning. "That's what I'm capable of doing". Five of the first 10 picks were lead guards.

The Sixers inked undrafted free agents Melo Trimble of Maryland and Kentucky guard Isaiah Briscoe to summer league contracts.
