Fortunately for the 76ers, that shouldn't be too complicated.

Washington's Markelle Fultz is the consensus projection for the No. 1 overall pick for the Boston Celtics. But there is a clear appetite for picks in this draft that could lead to potential lopsided trades. Let's just hope he makes the right move with this pick.

Whether they actually do meet in championships in coming years or not, their respective eras of dominance in the 60s and 80s along with their 12 NBA Finals showdowns against one another are clearly still fresh enough to keep this rivalry alive for quite a while. And there is a value, if just a small one, in that higher position.

And his teammates soon responded with improved, more gritty play defensively along with a slight uptick in terms of scoring the ball. The versatile 6-foot-8 forward from Detroit showed his biggest weakness wasn't a completely lost cause by hitting 38.5% of his 3-pointers in January, 47.8% in February and 40% in March. "We jumped up one more spot. We'll make sure it's different on Game 2". "I think that we're good at what we do". UCLA returned most of its players from 2016 (when the Bruins were the 117th-ranked offense in the nation), yet their team-wide assist numbers went through the roof, which the team largely attributed to Lonzo's style of play. However, they will not want to deal with his father. But they are at the point in their process where they can no longer pretend to be rebuilding. That group, while not eye-popping, are eight wins -albeit hard ones - from winning an 18th championship, which began Wednesday night at TD Garden.

And if the Celtics don't play any better than they did in the first half of the opener, that could be it. But there is a certain draft rate of exchange, and if they can acquire anything while dropping down a few spots, they might as well add it to their stash.

"I don't anticipate we're going to pull a rabbit out of a hat", Jackson said. He didn't say anything in the tweet, but still, people are trying to figure out what it all means.

The Celtics are going to have a high draft pick in this upcoming draft and have many options they can go from. So maybe he uses it as a creative lure to have someone take Jahlil Okafor. "That was definitely a goal of mine, and we got it, so it's on to bigger and better things". He had an eFG percentage of 58 from the floor when adjusted for opponents' defensive strength, and possesses the third-best adjusted offensive rebounding percentage in this draft class.

"Don't sleep on the kid we drafted at 26", Colangelo said on the radio. "It's just a matter of what degree of success".

A recent mock draft report at RotoWorld indicates that Duke's Jayson Tatum is the player that Philadelphia needs to draft. There's a lot of talent. So much on this level is finding the right guys with the right groups, and he fits perfectly with our guys. You have to build on this momentum. You can't bring him to L.A., he ain't ready for this.

Ainge not only did what Auerbach taught him - going outside the box in rebuilding a victor - but he beat everybody else. Colangelo knows what he has to do.
