Clarification on deal: Besides its 2017 FRP, Philly sends '18 Lakers pick w/ protections. If it doesn't convey, 76ers send 2019 Kings pick.

That's a good deal for Philly unless Josh Jackson turns out to be the better which will not surprise me one bit.

Lakers should draft Josh Jackson...I think he's perfect for what the new NBA demands.

Yeah everyone so far is saying this is a good deal for Philly.
Next years Sixers starting 5

Simmons-Fultz-Covington-Saric-Embiid

If the players play to their potential oh man

Covington one of the best wing defenders in the league

I don't think Fultz is worth giving up that many picks. They were saying they wanted to play Simmons at the point and even if they decided not to they could've stayed at 3 and gotten Fox or maybe Ball.

So I heard originally it was three 1st round picks to move up 2 spots. I think two 1st's is still a little steep but not as bad. I still don't think Fultz is really any better than Ball, Fox, or Smith.

They need to add a superstar to this team before their rookie deals expire

Covington is special on defense. Gotta hit 3s with some consistency though.

It's just 1 extra pick. Totally worth it...especially on a team where Simmons is not expected to be a 25-30pt scorer on nightly basis.

Actually I don't understand this trade from Boston's perspective unless they flip these picks for Butler. I love Josh Jackson but he's gonna take couple years to seriously contribute. Fultz is more pro-ready and less of a risk.

I think they're flipping them for Butler or George.

I was reading some Celtic blogs and the fans are not very happy with this trade. IMO this was a great deal for the Celts, particularly since they just drafted a stud wing player last year, who will probably be even more ready for prime time this year. If they can land Hayward, and deal some of that extensive draft capitol for another star, they will have Cleveland firmly in their sites next year.

He's gonna look real good in a Suns uniform.
