SIXERS MAKE THEIR MOVE AHEAD OF DRAFT

The NBA Draft is upon us this week, and the 76ers have already added some spice to the fold.

NBA reporters started clamoring over the weekend amid speculation the Celtics were taking offers for the top overall pick in the draft.

The Sixers were by far the only team that could offer anything resembling value, and finally decided to pull the trigger for a game-changer in Markelle Fultz. The Sixers gave up this year’s number three overall pick and a future first for the move up.

The top of the draft just changed drastically, with the Celtics now in play at three for Josh Jackson or Jayson Tatum.

And with Fultz now all but a Sixer, the future just got that much brighter in Philly.
