I was curious what Boston would get to move down just a couple of spots and that's a deal you can't pass up even with
Yes it's 2 spots but the likelihood of drafting an all star at 1 is significantly higher than 3rd. Could be the difference between Irving and Kanter.

I know but I don't think that will be the case in this years draft...In 2011 Kyrie was the clear cut number 1 pick
then a gap between Williams and Kanter.
A bit of revisionist history. Derrick Williams was very highly touted.
Fultz is the consensus number 1 this year. Since 2000, the only non-allstars picked number 1 were:
- Bargnani (very weak draft, no consensus)
- Oden (injuries, looked like a fantastic player)
- Bennett (again weak draft, awful pick by the Cavs)
By all accounts, this is not a weak draft and Fultz doesn't have much injury history.
