Boston trade first pick of this year’s NBA Draft to the Sixers

Philadelphia 76ers will have the number one overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft after trading picks with the Boston Celtics.

The Celtics will now have the third pick in the draft. Boston president Danny Ainge though has said there’s a good chance the player they take at number three is the same player they would’ve taken at number one.

The Celtics will also get the 2018 first-round pick that the Los Angeles Lakers owe the Sixers. The Celtics will receive the Lakers’ pick in 2018 if it falls between numbers two and five.

If that pick doesn’t convey to Boston the Sixers will send a 2019 first-round pick via the Sacramento Kings to the Celtics.
