Did Danny Ainge just reveal that the Celtics are drafting Jayson Tatum?

Did Danny Ainge just reveal that the Celtics are drafting Jayson Tatum?”

Three years ago Markelle Fultz was a junior varsity basketball player in Washington D.C.

(AP Photo/Michael Owen Baker, File). "Once Boston got No. 1, immediately there was a discussion that talked about some of the interest we had in No. 1".

That's where the Boston Celtics are scheduled to pick after moving down two spots in a trade with Philadelphia, giving the 76ers the right to select Fultz with their second No. 1 pick in two years. “I am incredibly excited that weve acquired the No. 1 overall pick in Thursdays NBA draft, ” 76ers managing general partner Josh Harris said. If I were the Kings, I'd want Crowder, who is locked into a cheap deal through 2020, or Smart, who the Kings were targeting in the 2014 draft.

"When I'm on the court, I feel at peace really", Fultz said in an interview last October with the Associated Press. However, the tide changed when they made a decision to give the Sixers the pick and instead tea the third slot in exchange. If the Sixers do take Fultz, it'll be a big boost to their team, but nothing in sports is certain. "Jayson Tatum, just because he's so versatile and I think his game will translate better in the National Basketball Association than it did in college; and he was already great in college".

LOVING LONZO - AND LAVAR: Ball acknowledged that there might be a "target" on him entering the draft because of all his father's comments.

For the Sixers, they add the playmaking, franchise point guard they've been coveting during their rebuilding "process" to stand alongside Joel Embiid and the still-yet-to-debut Aussie phenom Ben Simmons.

"They went great", he said. They could look to trade down from No. 3 in hopes to land a superstar like Kristaps Porzingis from the New York Knicks.

"We feel like it's a jump-start for us", Ainge said. "We're going to get ours tomorrow".

Magic Johnson, President of Basketball Operations, has explored many options with the No. 2 pick so far since lottery night, including a similar move that Philadelphia capitalized on. Of the 20 players expected to be in the green room, 13 were college one-and-dones. "We know how good Cleveland and we know how good Golden State is".

Fultz chose to attend Washington University because it was one of the first schools to recruit him. If not, Philadelphia will send Boston either its own first-rounder in 2019 or Sacramento's first-rounder that year.

The Lakers already have a lot of young talent on the roster, but Ball - a California native - has the ability to get the most out of the people around him, and that hometown buzz following him around wherever he goes. A couple of reports had the Sixers peripherally involved, winding up with Cavaliers forward Kevin Love in a multiple-team trade.

Ironically, the Lakers and Celtics rivalry, (ESPN's) "30 for 30" had just come out, so I had a little background with Danny Ainge going into the meeting. "I've been doing my work here and I'm just waiting for tomorrow night and whatever happens, happens".
