On Friday, the Philadelphia 76ers verbally agreed to trade the number 3 pick in the 2017 draft and the Los Angeles Lakers’ 2018 first round pick to the Boston Celtics in exchange for the number 1 pick in the 2017 draft according to the Vertical. Once they acquire the first overall pick, the Sixers are expected to draft guard Markelle Fultz Thursday.
Going from the draft to free agency, according to Jake Fischer of Sports Illustrated Sunday, prior to acquiring the first pick from Boston, the Sixers were expected to pursue Los Angeles Clippers free agent shooting guard J.J. Redick.
