No. 1 pick hopes to turn 76ers into winners

24 June 2017

During Thursday night's draft, the No. 1 pick's social media crew forgot to include a couple of minor details in a post to Fultz's Instagram account repping watch brand Tissot. The Timberwolves struggled last season, but have a very promising young core in Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

Fultz was all set to become a Celtic but on Monday the pick was officially dealt to Philadelphia.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Markelle Fultz already has his first turnover as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers.

With Zach Randolph on the outs due to age (cheers to a fantastic career Z-Bo), the Grizzlies are looking toward the future with one of the best rebounders in the draft class. Rabb's mobility makes him a threat in transition and in the pick and roll, along with a soft shooting touch out to 18 feet.

The Indiana Pacers might still know exactly what they're doing. They sold a touch under 10,000 last season and have accepted more than 1,000 partial plan deposits just this week.

Along with Fultz, the Sixers also drafted four other players in the draft, three of which came in the second round.

Now they are hoping for more with the trio of Fultz, Simmons and entertaining center Joel Embiid.
