2017 NBA DRAFT PREVIEW

With less than a week to go before 60 anxious young athletes find out the next stop on their basketball journey, the draft received a jolt with news that the Boston Celtics had sent the right to kick off the festivities a few hours south to Philadelphia in exchange for the #3 pick this year, as well as a future pick in either 2018 or 2019.

With the 76ers twitter account all but sending out save the date announcements for the impending nuptials between Markelle Fultz and the City of Brotherly Love, I’ll toss my hat into the ring on I project the rest of the evening to unfold.
