But a team with a healthy Joel Embiid, Simmons, Saric and Fultz would certainly make the 76ers one of the NBA's most intriguing teams and a must-watch when next season begins. The rumor appears to be true considering the fact that Fultz was supposed to have a scheduled workout with the Celtics sometime Saturday but his plans got shifted to Philadelphia instead.
The trade reportedly will be completed Monday.
Boston has made it known that they want to be players in the sweepstakes for Utah Jazz star Gordon Hayward to reunite him with Brad Stevens, his college coach at Butler.
The Celtics and Bulls weren't able to work something out then, but it looks like they might be able to now. The guard from the University of Washington was rumored to be working out Saturday for the 76ers according to a report in the Boston Herald.

On the surface it doesn't generally make sense to trade the first pick in the draft as teams usually believe that they are going to be selecting a sure-fire good player, if not a regular All-Star. No, it really wouldn't.
Philadelphia had the No. 1 draft spot three previous times, taking Doug Collins in 1973, Allen Iverson in 1996 and Ben Simmons a year ago. Barely three years later, he's nearly certainly going to become the No. 1 pick in the National Basketball Association draft and if he gets to start his pro career by calling Philadelphia his new home, he'll be living roughly a 2 1/2-hour drive from his hometown of Upper Marlboro, Maryland. The Lakers are sandwiched between the two teams and have interest in Jackson at No. 2, among other prospects including UCLA guard Lonzo Ball.
The return for the No.1 overall pick according to Woj is the No.3 pick and future first round picks with very specific conditions.
