76ers, Celtics in serious trade talks for No. 1 pick

Meanwhile, the Lakers have heard from prospects that they would like to play alongside Ingram.

Almost everyone expects the Boston Celtics to draft Washington guard Markelle Fultz with the top pick. Boston last traded the No. 1 overall pick in 1980 to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for Robert Parish and No. 3 overall pick Kevin McHale. With Boston's leverage, it would cost Philadelphia at least two of these second round pick.

"Ainge player all the way", the GM told Ford. But this would also be far from the first time that the Celtics toed the line of making a big move only to pull back at the last minute to reassess their options.

The Los Angeles Lakers could possibly be the National Basketball Association franchise to watch leading up to the 2017 NBA Draft because team that have been associated in several trade rumors of late. Besides not being a rim protector and consistent shooter, Jackson fills just about all of the Celtics needs. "Lonzo is a great guard, so we're both competing for the same position". The Lakers are more than likely going to draft Ball. Joining Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Dario Saric, Fultz would give the Sixers what would easily be the best young team in the league, and would instantly put them on the map to attract A-level free agents.

The 6-foot-4 guard believes he would fit well alongside D'Angelo Russell, the Lakers' similarly sized third-year guard.

The Lakers offer still may not be enough to outdo the Sixers, but things are bound to get interesting in the coming days as the draft nears.

Sports reporter and producer Sean Cunningham of Sacramento's ABC affiliate first reported the private Jackson workout.

Suns general manager Ryan McDonough might have appeared to be the draft lottery loser, but he's going to get a quality player no matter who slips to the fourth spot.

The Sixers can't waste more time trying to develop players from the second round to try to improve the team.

So while it may be fun to add a little more fuel to the pre-draft speculation, this is just a picture of the top prospect sitting next to a auto previously owned by Red Auerbach.
