The 2017 NBA Draft garnered 11% more social engagement than previous year

The 2017 NBA Draft garnered 11% more social engagement than previous year”

As the 76ers was able to come up with a major deal to acquire it, we all know that more than likely, it will be Washington Huskies guard Markelle Fultz.

Fultz averaged 23.2 points last season along with 5.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds, the highest in Division I ball.

Markkanen averaged 15.6 points and 7.2 rebounds in his only season of U.S. college basketball at Arizona. He found one in Butler, who the Wolves acquired along with the 16th overall pick for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 pick, which ended up being - what else? - another freshman, Arizona's Lauri Markkanen.

He joins a young squad that features Australian forward Ben Simmons, another top draft pick who missed all of last season with a foot injury; Jahlil Okafor and 2017 National Basketball Association rookie of the year finalists Joel Embiid and Dario Saric. Fultz played just 25 games in college and said that it had been his dream to be the top pick at the National Basketball Association draft. Simmons was drafted first overall by the Sixers last June, though missed the entire season due to injury, leaving him eligible for Rookie of the Year in 2017-2018.

Now Fultz officially is a member of the 76ers and the latest young piece in a rebuilding plan dubbed by former GM Sam Hinkie as "the process".

This was one of the youngest drafts in league history as a record 16 freshmen-or first year American college players-were selected in the first round. He wanted to remain in the Los Angeles area after averaging 14.6 points, 7.6 assists and six rebounds in his lone season as a Bruin.

The Lakers used their third straight number two pick on Ball.

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

Magic Johnson made a decision to stay home and drafted Lonzo Ball from out of UCLA with the #2 pick.

The Celtics then took Duke's Jayson Tatum at No. 3 after moving down two spots in the trade with Philadelphia, drawing cheers from a large contingent of their fans at Barclays Center wearing green.

The Phoenix Suns selected Josh Jackson from Kansas University. In his only season in college, Jackson averaged 16.3 points and 7.4 rebounds.

Ball's father, LaVar, put on his Lakers hat even before the pick became official. The Source Sports will be tuning to provide full coverage of each pick from each team.
