Kansas' Jackson, Duke's Tatum headline forwards in NBA draft

Did Danny Ainge just reveal that the Celtics are drafting Jayson Tatum

"The workout was pretty normal, but the really cool thing about it was that Joel, Rob Covington and Ben Simmons were all watching from the sidelines".

Embiid walked up and said "Trust the Process" to Fultz.

Tatum, a Third Team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection, averaged 16.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.1 blocks, while shooting 45.2 percent from the field for the Blue Devils. Fultz finished No. 6 among all Division 1 players and ultimately was the top freshman scorer in the country.

ยท According to many analysts, the Celtics got great value in the SMU product. "We are a team on the rise in so many different ways".

"I talked about that with coach Stevens and he said guys at my size and my position and are able to hit open shots and defend the one through the four, it's hard not to play those guys so that's how he looks at using me if they were to draft me", Tatum said.

Markelle Fultz is still expected to be the No. 1 pick, though the destination has changed.

Later in the Draft, the Celtics welcomed aboard Southern Methodist forward Semi Ojeleye (37th overall), Arizona guard Kadeem Allen (53rd overall) and Cal-Berkeley guard Jabari Bird (56th overall). If they do go that route, they won't be that far off from opening up max-level cap space to make a run at a big-name free agent.

As part of the deal with Philadelphia, Boston will also receive a first-round draft pick in either 2018 or 2019 - giving it even more bargaining chips to bolster its roster.

Health Care gains in danger!!
Heller and Sandoval said they believe that Obamacare has problems, but raised concerns with the Senate plan's Medicaid provisions. Conservatives want to kill Medicaid and let the states use money from block grants to fund health care for the poor.

"I'm looking to go in there and just learn from day one", he said of furthering his hoops education under Lakers head of basketball operations and legendary point guard, Magic Johnson. "It's well on its way there".

- David Harris would have been a nice fit at linebacker for the Giants after the Jets let him go, but signing with Belichick and the evil Patriots always is a much better storyline.

Tatum said he feels fortunate to be joining a contender immediately.

"If you're on the school newspaper, they don't limit the number of hours you work on writing an article", Krzyzewski said. "He'll show our players a lot of the things that he's learned along the way". They sold a touch under 10,000 last season and have accepted more than 1,000 partial plan deposits just this week.

Coach K's proposal would include each NBA team having a set affiliate in the Development League, allowing players not interested in NCAA basketball to simply enter the draft.

Regardless, Boston drafted great talent last night. And my mom believed him. Jon thinks it gives the Celtics enough time to reset their assets for an additional pre-draft deal. Ainge said that he was mad because he had to get up at 4 a.m. and fly back home. "He'll also be making some shots, I think". A lover of Chick-fil-A and his own homemade fried rice. I'm a competitor, really a high character guy. You've got to produce. Many make the complaint that Tatum is too similar to Brown; however, seeing the potential Jaylen and Jayson have in their future, why not have them both?

Asked what kind of person he is, Jackson said, "I'm a humble guy".
