With the first pick in the NBA Draft, the Boston Celtics are expected to select point guard Markelle Fultz. That’s what is expected, but it could change.
Jordan Schulz of Bleacher Report shared some inside information about the former Kentucky point guard on Twitter: “There are multiple teams in the lottery who feel De’Aaron Fox — not Fultz or Ball — is the top PG in the draft. Continues 2 rise.”
If Fox doesn’t fly all the way up to No. 1, he still could surpass Lonzo Ball and head to Los Angeles with the second pick. According to Mark Medina, Fox will work out with the Lakers and the Sixers, who hold the No. 3 pick. The workouts are expected to take place between June 11 and the 17th, about a week before the draft.
Fultz has been the consensus No. 1 overall pick for months, but a lot can change before June 22.
