"I'm very proud to be a part of it along with all of us". "And they haven't reached their peak yet".
The Wizards' future looked bright several months ago, but now there's a vibrant glow from other parts of the East Coast that can not be ignored.
The Philadelphia 76ers have agreed to a deal with the Boston Celtics to acquire the No. 1 overall pick in the National Basketball Association draft, clearing the way to select Washington point guard Markelle Fultz, league sources told The Vertical. In exchange, the Sixers will send the Celtics their first-round pick from Thursday's draft (No. 3 overall), plus first-rounders in 2018 (originally a Lakers pick) and 2019 (a Kings pick), The Vertical reported.
The Boston Celtics just made a move that may be questionable.

The attack comes during the Muslim holy month of Ramazan when people attend 'Taraweeh' prayers at night. "Officers are on the scene with other emergency services", the police spokesman was quoted as saying.
We can debate all day whether any of the other prospects will measure up to Fultz but it's wasted breath at this point. Furthermore, although Philly fans have been begging for a point guard, I believe this season they found a great element in TJ McConnell. "It's like you're a bystander". Thompson needed 17 seasons to achieve her total. If he doesn't live up to expectations, Philly will look bad. Finding a shooter with his three-point ability was a priority for the Sixers.
This core, which also features Markieff Morris and reserve wing Kelly Oubre Jr., consists of players 27 years old and younger. The Boston Celtics are somewhere in the tier below, but appear to be closer to the Cavs than Golden State. In 1986, Philadelphia moved the No. 1 selection (Brad Daugherty, who made five all-star appearances in eight seasons) for veteran Roy Hinson, who didn't move the needle and cash.
The 76ers enter every season with their doctors on speed dial.
The same questions about fit will now surround Philadelphia's backcourt, although Ben Simmons - who missed his entire rookie season previous year while recovering from a foot injury - can be more of a traditional point guard than Thomas, and won't require the ball in his hands as much. He wasn't on the Celtics team to begin with.

Without the success of the original Batman series, it is hard to imagine where television or superhero content would be today. Justin Harrison, 43, wore a Batman costume and said West was not only an actor but someone who "inspired millions".
While the 76ers will look promising with Fultz, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, the Boston Celtics potential lineup of Isaiah Thomas, Jimmy Butler, Gordon Hayward, Josh Jackson and Al Horford may put a roadblock in the Cleveland Cavaliers journey back to the finals sooner rather than later.
I mean, the player visited the team and said he felt like he was destined to wear the green.
There are some thoughts in which the top guards in this year's draft aren't too far apart talent wise, but someone will likely become a star and if it's Fultz it'll backfire in Boston's face. Fultz is the kind of player Ainge and Co. have been waiting for ever since Draft Night in 2013, when the Nets handed over their drafts for the next half-decade for the aging trio of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry. He also is building for the future with the hope of outlasting the best player in the world, James. They no longer have it, they traded it off. For the Celtics, making one NBA Finals every 10.3 years is unacceptable. Sides have agreed. Sixers will get first pick and take Fultz. We won't know for a few years if passing on him will be a lifelong professional regret for Ainge.
