National Basketball Association draft draws second-largest audience on ESPN

Fultz will too, and the 76ers will hope he's better at basketball than social media.

In addition to Fultz, the Sixers got the draft rights to the 25th overall pick, center Anzejs Pasecniks from BC VEF Riga (Latvia), from Orlando in exchange for a future protected first-round pick from Oklahoma City and the lesser of the 2020 second round choice from Brooklyn or the 2020 second-round pick from NY.

It came in an Instagram post sponsored by a watch company.

"That's the goal coming in this year", Fultz said Friday about turning the Process into result.

Ah, it's a process.

As a result of finally making a move for a player that fits the roster in Philadelphia - as opposed to just drafting best player available, like the Sixers did from 2013-15 when they drafted three straight centers - the coaching staff and front office are finally in a position to shape a team that is balanced enough to become a competitive force. "Just a basic Philly cheesesteak".

Fultz, usually quiet, reserved and seemingly very serious in public, revealed a lighter, funnier side in his Players Tribune piece. "I Googled it immediately", wrote Fultz, who added that crispy chicken sandwiches are his good-luck charm. "Today is a good day".

Throughout the second half of the season, we saw plenty of flashes in the team's foundation, whether it was the newly acquired Buddy Hield, rookie Skal Labissiere or big man Willie Cauley-Stein. Embiid quickly chimed in with, "Please dunk on him so hard that his daddy runs on the court to save him".

Fultz's success as an National Basketball Association rookie will ultimately depend upon the availability of both Embiid and Simmons, and if they can stay healthy for the majority of the season.

Embiid, who missed his first two seasons with foot injuries, was placed on minutes restrictions in 2016-17 and was banned from playing both games of back-to-back contests. I think Markelle and Ben together is a dynamic backcourt.

"We are now at a place where you can actually touch people and positionally feel that we're balanced in the people that we're touching and how we hope to build the program", Brown said of his team's roster.

Colangelo said Embiid would have no minutes' restrictions this season, provided he stays healthy. Nowadays in the National Basketball Association everybody has different people bringing up the ball and that's just what you have to do to win.

He was scheduled to work out Friday for Boston, which then held the No. 1-overall pick, but trade talks were heating up between the Celtics and Sixers, who were slated to pick third overall.

No worries, for now.

Elliot Daly is next in line - or Liam Williams could fill in if he is not handed the No 15 jersey. We could go that way, we could potentially change and do that during the match as well.

"I'm fully invested in this organization and I'm thankful I got this opportunity", Fultz said.

The other amusing story to come out of Fultz's day in the spotlight is that he's moving to Philly, home of the cheesesteak, and is most excited about their generic, fast food chicken sandwiches.

The tease of the potential ahead has caused Sixers fans to react with their wallets: the Sixers said Wednesday they have sold a franchise-record 14,000 season ticket packages for next season. They waited two years for Embiid to recover from injuries.

The Sixers kept the project rolling later in the first round, striking a deal with Orlando to acquire the 25th pick, center Anzejs Pasecniks from Latvia.

The Sixers made four picks in the second round: UCLA and Australian forward Jonah Bolden; Oklahoma State guard Jawun Evans, SMU guard Sterling Brown and power forward Mathias Lessort out of France.

"Everything is designed with a championship in mind", Colangelo said.
