The NBA draft is quickly approaching, but one major trade has created some changes at the top of the class.
The Boston Celtics agreed to trade the No. 1 pick to the Philadelphia 76ers for the No. 3 pick and future assets, per ESPN. All of a sudden, the projected top player in Markelle Fultz looks like he is heading to a new team, and the rest of the draft needs to accommodate.
According to ESPN’s Chad Ford’s latest mock draft, Fultz will remain the No. 1 overall pick to the 76ers, while Lonzo Ball stays at No. 2 to the Los Angeles Lakers. The change comes with Josh Jackson becoming the No. 3 to the Celtics.
