It's time for No. 1 pick Fultz to turn 76ers into winners

It was Jones who sent an undersized Fultz to the Stags' junior varsity squad during his sophomore year, a move that lit the fire of competitiveness in the future No. 1 pick of the NBA Draft. Curry and Green most often initiated their offense, but ex-Sixer Andre Iguodala, a reserve, also did so at times.

"Look, I'd just say we want Joel to be on the team for a long time", Harris said, via the Bucks County Courier Times. They traded down and gave up the chance to draft Markelle Fultz, who was the best player in the draft by far.

Perhaps the Blazers can again make themselves contenders for a top four seed in the Western Conference, but if not, they are just a very expensive team with little flexibility and little way to improve.

Said Tatum: "It's a great feeling". The first two, Doug Collins in 1973 and Allen Iverson in 1996, worked out pretty well. When he heard the news that he was working out for the Sixers, Fultz's first thought was about fast-food chicken sandwiches.

Fultz, it should be noted, is 19 years old and probably has the metabolism of a hummingbird. "They did their research.'" It looks like Fultz and the Sixers are the flawless match.

In the piece Fultz chronicles his journey to becoming the first player taken, thanking the people who helped him get to this point.

After signing a $125 million contract, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr said he'd spend his windfall on the one thing that will make his belly happy while his injured right leg heals.

"When you look at the combination of Ben and Markelle", Brown said, "we will grow those young players, allow them to co-exist and let them grow with each other". Pasceniks averaged 8.0 points and 3.2 rebounds in 16.4 minutes last season. The Mavericks selected former No. 1 overall high school recruit Dennis Smith Jr. with the No. 9 pick, and he'll get to run his team against Jackson. He continued to blossom at Washington. The Sixers' president of basketball operations said there hasn't been any discussion yet about holding Embiid out of any back-to-backs this season after the center played just 31 games last season because of injuries.

President Donald Trump leads a rally marking his first 100 days in office in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. "This whole thing stinks". Jay Sekulow , told " Meet the Press " moderator Chuck Todd "The president is not under investigation by the special counsel".

It is his versatility that the Sixers coveted the most.

"Joel will come out and [say] something similar", Sixers head coach Brett Brown said.

Moments later, he blocked a shot and finished off the play with a lay-up that gave Duke a three-point lead.

Ben Simmons, a 6-10 facilitator.

His weaknesses are finishing around the basket and free-throw shooting. He only made 64.9 of his attempt at the line at Washington.

The Raptors selected OG Anunoby with the No. 23 overall pick of the draft. The Houston Rockets took Ralph Sampson No. 1 in 1983 and Hakeem Olajuwon a year later. The Cleveland Cavaliers chose Anthony Bennett in 2013 and Andrew Wiggins in 2014.

Late in the title game against Notre Dame, Tatum put together a sequence of plays that speaks to why the Celtics were seriously considering taking him with the number one overall pick had they not been able to trade it for the No. 3 and a future first-round pick. The Holy Grail is, of course, Golden State, which has turned basketball into ballet. Both Chicago and Indianapolis were playoff teams last season.
