i think 2 chances at a very good player is better than one, so I will at this point give the edge to the Celtics.

Nah u just being a homer. Next season the lakers don't have any incentive to tank so they will try to win as much as possible to show Paul George and lebron they have a bright future. Next year draft isn't that good and fultz is as close to being the sure thing as u will get. 2 winners here 76ers and Isaiah Thomas as a free agent lol. Celtics will have to pay up for a midget that can't play defense

I understand Boston plans and it was good move (based on the plan). they get the player they wanted and something extra.
Problem is ... I don't think it was the best plan
Boston should have kept the #1 and traded IT to Indiana for PG. IT is a midget and not too young. he will be 29 years old in February. It will not be smarty to offer him max (or near) multiyear year contract. Even if PG ends up being a year rental, it would not be a problem as there would be a replacement to It already with a year of experience.

IMO, Fultz is superior than the next 4 draft options. Being the next 4 somewhat equal.

The Lakers will definitely be more competitive next season but they will still be bad. A young team that will go through tons of growing pains together.

Fultz is a stud- no doubt, but he may not be as good as projected. Hard to say until we see who LAL takes, if they pass on Ball and take Jackson might suck for BOS.

My hope for Boston is that they have a plan if this happens. Hopefully involves moving 3, with some mediocre assets to Kings for 5 and 10. Sacto may be interested in a Ball game, or would like to ensure they nab Fox. Boston can they move down to select Tatum and Collins at 5 and 10 and save face somewhat.

They both honestly won...IF Josh Jackson is still there for them at #3. Otherwise Philly.

None of us can say right now. Fultz could be a star and Jackson not. Fultz can be a star and Jackson not, but next year's pick Ayton is. Fultz could be a star, Jackson a star, and the pick conveys to the Sac 2019 Pick and its Zion Williamson

Too many variables, but if i had to make a guess...

For Philly it was a pretty much a cant lose trade bc you dont have room for more future top picks anyway. Also next year's draft is WEAK. Fultz for them is such a better fit than Jackson that even though they may be close as prospects, thats a HUGE difference.

For Boston it could be push, it could be disaster, or could be looked back as a dynasty defining moment. If i had to take a pick, i'd say push at best with a lean toward disaster. Fultz will ball out, Jackson will be jack of all trades but no star, and next year's pick 2-5 will be a guy who cant even crack their rotation.

What if Josh Jackson is there and they take Tatum?

Who won then?

Definitely a Win/Win for both teams.

The difference is Philly knows who their core is, while the Celtics still do not. But have 2 lottery picks next year, unless the LAC pick becomes SAC, and even more trade pieces to get a star.

I don't think they will draft Jackson. Danny knows the team has enough defensive minded players on their team who can't shoot. They'll pick Tatum. 85 % FT shooter in college on a good team. Good scorer, plus 6'8 with a 7'0 wingspan. The better pick IMO.

This 100%. Perfect trade for both teams. Boston already has great guards. The Sixers have drafted surrounding players and really need that one guard with star potential.

the Celtics didnt want to draft Fultz #1 so they get picks back for a player they never wanted in the first place. pretty great trade from their perspective. whether or not the 76ers also win depends on what type of player Fultz becomes. I seriously doubt this one pays off for them. I dont view him as a player you build a franchise around
