Markelle Fultz Responds To Celtics Trading No. 1 Pick To 76ers

There was a time when it appeared that Markelle Fultz would be a Boston Celtic, but those days probably are long gone.

The former Washington point guard widely is considered the top prospect in the 2017 NBA Draft, and the Celtics owned the No. 1 pick until Monday when they exchanged it for the No. 3 overall selection and a future first-rounder from the Philadelphia 76ers.

As a result, it sure looks like Fultz will be trusting the process in Philly, while the latest rumors seem to have the C’s interested in Duke’s Jayson Tatum. And Fultz had a pretty interesting quote about the situation, via The Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach.

“Trader Danny” Ainge strikes again.
