The NBA Draft presents teams with an opportunity to build for the future by selecting promising young players. The Philadelphia 76ers are hoping for a bright future after the team selected point guard Markelle Fultz with the first overall pick. Philadelphia originally held the third overall pick, but packaged it along with a future first-round selection to acquire the №1 pick from the Boston Celtics. It was the second straight year the 76ers picked first overall.
A 6-foot-4-inch native of Maryland, Fultz spent the 2016–2017 season with Washington University, where, as a freshman, he averaged 23.2 points, 5.9 assists, and 5.7 rebounds per game. He led the Pac-12 conference in points per game and finished among the top 10 in field goals, free throws, assists, and steals.
