76ers get No. 1 pick from Celtics, chance to draft Fultz

History will say the Boston Celtics passed on the No. 1 overall pick in this year's NBA draft, not only trading it away but doing so in a deal with one of the team's fiercest rivals.

Danny Ainge isn't worried.

Philadelphia and Boston completed their trade of draft picks on Monday, the 76ers acquiring the No. 1 pick from the Celtics and netting the chance to draft Washington guard Markelle Fultz. The Celtics moved down two spots to No. 3 and picked up another first-round selection in either 2018 or 2019 - with Ainge saying the deal came at no cost to Boston whatsoever.
