Former University of Washington guard Markelle Fultz is viewed as the potential No. 1 overall pick and the reason the Sixers are looking to move up. According to the reports, Philadelphia is prepared to trade the No. 3 pick, plus future draft picks to Boston.
In current parameters, BOS would receive several picks and no players, sources say. Have to think No. 3 would be involved. https://t.co/xHYANlYzeT
