It looks like this is a done deal.

The Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics have agreed on terms to trade the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft to Philly. With that pick, the Sixers will reportedly take Washington guard Markelle Fultz. The deal will be finalized on Monday.

The Process has come to fruition it seems here in the summer of 2017, with Philly about to capitalize on years of terrible finishes. Fultz got the chance to work out for the 76ers as well as meet some of his potential future teammates, including Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Robert Covington.

The group makes a formidable opponent, don’t you think?

If this team stays healthy, the East could be in for a quick-rising challenger here in the near future.
