The 2017 NBA Draft is just about to get underway, meaning that Markelle Fultz will be a member of the Philadelphia 76ers very shortly. Hard to believe it’s actually going to happen, but I’m certainly not complaining.
Here’s some rumors to keep you occupied until the night begins:
- The Sixers are looking to package their two second round picks to get into the late first.
- The Knicks and Celtics have discussed a Kristaps Porzingis trade.
- So have the Suns.
- Tom Thibodeau and the Minnesota Timberwolves are hot and heavy after his old pal Jimmy Butler.
Tonight is setting up to be very interesting. A Porzingis trade seems unlikely given the asking price, but a Butler trade seems within the realm of possibilities. Here’s how to watch:
When: Thursday, June 22 at 7 p.m. Eastern Time
