They're getting the player they want.

76ers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo said the trade "puts us in the enviable position of selecting first overall in consecutive draft years".

Lonzo Ball of UCLA is expected to go No. 2 to the Lakers, although the sides have yet to reach agreement on a deal.

And then come the Celtics, starting the real intrigue.

Ainge confirmed the Celtics brought in Tatum for a workout Monday, and that the team plans to host Jackson for a workout Tuesday.

"First of all, how I carry myself as a player and as a young man", he said. "I would venture to say we're going to be sold out this year playing to full capacity every night".

So the way he looks at it, the deal is a win-win. Per NBA.com's David Aldridge, the Pacers might seek upwards of two first-round draft picks packaged with a starter for George.

Mitt Romney carried the district by more than 23 points when he faced former President Barack Obama in 2012. The issue was brought up during a debate between Ossoff and his opponent, Karen Handel, earlier this month.

For what it's worth, Ainge did not rule out the trade with Philly leading to another deal. "We've got pick certainty now". "We think there's a really good chance the player we'll take at 3 is the same player we would have taken at 1". We watched the same Finals that everybody did. "I can't wait for the draft on Thursday and continue to move forward".

The 76ers make an aggressive move that promises to land them the top player in the draft. If it is not, the Celtics will instead receive either Sacramento's or Philadelphia's first round pick in 2019, whichever is more favorable.

Fultz, the versatile Washington guard who worked out for the Sixers on Saturday evening, is the consensus top player and clearly the best fit in Brett Brown's system.

There are some conditions on the future first-rounder Boston gets out of this deal. If it doesn't, Boston will get either the 76ers' or the Kings' pick in 2019. "This is certainly a trade that is under the microscope more than others", said Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge, "but we're not afraid of that".

With Thomas, though, the Celtics didn't necessarily need a point guard — which is the piece Philadelphia apparently wanted most. Fultz, 19, averaged 23.2 points (47.6 percent from the field and 41.3 percent from three), 5.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds last season.

All indications are the 76ers will select Fultz, who grew up in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, and played his freshman season at the University of Washington. The 76ers have a rookie of the year contender, in Joel Embiid, a former number on selection in Ben Simmons who missed all of last year with a foot injury, and Fultz as the newcomer.

The first part of the trade is straightforward: The Celtics swapped the first pick in this year's draft for the third pick in this year's draft.
