Celtics Draft Rumors: Why Kansas Forward Josh Jackson Won't Workout For Boston

Celtics Draft Rumors: Why Kansas Forward Josh Jackson Won't Workout For Boston”

"Not yet", the source said when asked if the team was still hoping to schedule a session with Jackson prior to Thursday night's draft.

But the Sixers undoubtedly view their successful trade with the Celtics in which the Sixers have nabbed the No. 1 overall pick from Boston, as their biggest one yet. Theyre getting the player they want, ” said Ainge, the Celtics president of basketball operations.

3 pick in tomorrow's NBA Draft, but the Celtics will not get a workout with one of the top options for that pick.

Jimmy Butler has found himself in trade rumors, though it's looking more and more unlikely that he will be dealt. "The player chosen may end up being a franchise-level player".

Philadelphia will hold the No. 1 pick for the second straight year. The Sixers used the No. 1 pick past year on Ben Simmons, who missed the entire season because of a foot injury. With that guy playing for us this year, we would not have been as close to as good as we were without him and his willingness to want to win, his willingness to play multiple positions, his willingness to do whatever it took. "That's our goal. That's where we want to be".

"This is certainly a trade that is under the microscope more than others", Ainge said. It depends on the move the Lakers make, of course. If the Lakers hold a pick between No. 2 and No. 5 next season, Boston now gets that one as well. If it doesn't, Boston will get either the 76ers' or the Kings' pick in 2019. There are three potential players for the team to take and several teams calling to see if the Celtics are even going to make that pick.

"You have to take advantage of those opportunities when they present themselves", Colangelo said. "We're not mortgaging our future". Fultz, who went to high school in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, led the Pac-12 in scoring and finished No. 6 among all Division I players. Fultz, 19, is attractive for Philadelphia because he can play point and shooting guard.

The 76ers may not be done dealing.

Philadelphia also owns four second-round picks, acquired in previous trades with the Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks and Utah Jazz. "We're lining up options". He has heard the criticisms that he lacks the foot speed to defend National Basketball Association wings and the size to guard National Basketball Association power forwards, but he's confident he can do both.

Philadelphia gave fans a possible glimpse of the future when it won 10 of 15 games in January.

"I think it would be great to play in Boston", Jackson said.
