Colin Cowherd reveals his most underrated player in the 2017 NBA Draft


Regardless of what moves they eventually decide to make, the trade between Boston and Philly will certainly solidify a long-standing rivalry to return back to its competitive days.

Given that the 76ers are now widely expected to draft Fultz, Ainge's comments suggest that the Celtics never meant to draft the Washington point guard.

The 76ers acquired the top overall pick from Boston in exchange for their No. 3 selection and a future first-round pick, according to statements released by both teams.

"We are very pleased with the outcome of this trade, which puts us in the enviable position of selecting first overall in consecutive draft years", Sixers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo said in the statement. "History suggests that No. 1 has the greatest odds of producing franchise-level talent and we are confident that this year's draft class has that very potential".

The lack of resolution in Griffin's situation with the National Basketball Association draft just four days away and free agency commencing in 16 days is starting to cause some unrest within the ranks in Cleveland.

The 6-foot-4 guard averaged 23.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.9 assists in 25 games during his lone college season at Washington, excelling on a team that finished 9-22 and lost its final 13 games.

Hopefully the Celtics will get all the workouts they need, and that can give the fans a bit more confidence that Ainge is making the right decision.

A possible first round pick will be the Los Angeles Lakers' 2018 pick, if it's within the number two to number five range of the 2018 draft. But draft picks are the most coveted and easiest to trade, and Boston is overflowing.

It will mark the second straight year that Philadelphia selects first overall. “And were getting an additional player that we want in next years draft or the year after. The teams agreed to the deal over the weekend, hours after expected top pick Markelle Fultz worked out for the Sixers.

The Sixers get the player that best fits their needs at No. 1.

Not counting 2017's first-rounder, the Celtics hold seven first-round picks through 2019. They have a supremely talented young core, but will be relying on two players, Ben Simmons and presumably Markelle Fultz, who have yet to play a second in the National Basketball Association, plus another, Joel Embiid, with a long history of health issues.

If the Celtics get the pick in 2019 ...

Fultz now has that opportunity to leave his own blueprint on the team and run it properly having all these young players working together to move Philadelphia into the Playoffs. Josh Jackson from Kansas and Jayson Tatum from Duke are the current front-runners to be taken third overall. "I am not afraid of that", Ainge said, per Scott Souza of the Providence Journal.
