In 2015-16, the Sixers won 10 games and used Ben Simmons with the top overall pick. Think how much talent that is and what a bright future that would represent for the Sixers, assuming the players are healthy. Fultz also has the quickness and length - he has a 7-foot wingspan - to be an excellent defender.
The trade reportedly will be completed Monday. But it's hard to parse whether Ainge saw something he didn't like in Fultz, whether he thinks he can make another deal that would require more assets, or whether he simply places a whole lot of value on the likes of Thomas, Smart and Bradley.
Guard Markelle Fultz is expected to be the No. 1 pick but he will not be heading to the Celtics. The one other free agent I'd like to see come to Boston is J.J. Redick. "I'm close to home". But sources confirmed Friday night that the Sixers, who have the third pick, were in advanced talks with the Celtics for a swap.
The specifics of the deal, first reported by David Aldridge, appear to be as follows: Boston will take back the third overall pick in this year's draft, as well as the Los Angeles Lakers' pick in the 2018 draft, now owned by the Sixers.
We still do not know exactly what the trade is, but it appears that the Celtics moved down two spots in the upcoming draft and picked up the 2018 Los Angeles Lakers' first-round pick and a 2019 first-round pick that came from the Sacremento Kings.

The way they turned things round speaks volumes for the talent they have. "Early wickets are never good, especially in a chase. Hardik Pandya cheered India fans in a capacity crowd as he hit three sixes off succesive balls to bring up a dashing fifty.
"I really don't pay a lot of attention to it", he said. I let God take care of that.
Fultz is apparently going to get taken one spot better. Plus, The Vertical reports that his camp probably wouldn't have allowed the visit without a promise of a deal.
But the real question is, how does Joel Embiid feel about his team potentially drafting Markelle Fultz? "That's all it was". Boston still has the Brooklyn Nets' first round pick in 2018. But he looked happy being inside the practice facility Saturday night.
Fultz already got the chance to work out with the 76ers. However, he did have a preference.
Sixers fans have been dreaming about Fultz joining "The Process" for months.
