Fultz stated he was trying to not pay much focus on the trade talk.
Fultz’s rise to stardom continues to be rapid. In 2014, he was playing junior varsity basketball in senior high school. Barely 3 years later, he’s likely to end up being the NBA’s No. 1 pick. And when he will get to begin his pro career in Philadelphia, he’ll be roughly a 2½-hour drive from his hometown of Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
“[The final couple of days have] been crazy, man,” Fultz stated. “Just understanding that the draft is really a couple days away, it has been unbelievable. It has been a blessing. Like I stated, an aspiration I usually had. I am just anxious to get at on that day and merely have it over and done with in order to know where I am going and set full investment into whatever team I am likely to.Inch
When the trade is finalized, the very first four spots within the draft order will exactly mirror the very first-four order from this past year: Philadelphia might have no. 1 pick, the Opposing team might have No. 2, Boston might have No. 3 and Phoenix might have No. 4.
In the last 10 seasons, 3 other freshmen were built with a better scoring average attending college: Kevin Durant for Texas in the year 2006-07 and Michael Beasley for Kansas Condition in 2007-08. Durant and Beasley were both No. 2 picks.
