The Boston Celtics might not own the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft for much longer.
The C’s and the Philadelphia 76ers are in “serious talks on a trade involving the No. 1 overall pick,” according to ESPN’s Marc Stein and Zach Lowe.
In return, the Celtics likely would receive the No. 3 overall pick and a future first-round pick, per The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
And if you have any doubts as to how serious these discussions are, likely No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz could be visiting the 76ers soon, according to Wojnarowski.
Recent reports have indicated that the Celtics are interested in Josh Jackson, who likely would be available at No. 3. And the 76ers sure could use some guard help with their logjam down low.
So, it appears Trader Danny Ainge is about to strike again.
