According to ESPN’s Zach Lowe and Marc Stein, the Sixers are working on a trade that would send a package of picks, including their No. 3 selection, to the Celtics in exchange for the top overall draft choice.
Washington point guard Markelle Fultz is projected by most to be the No. 1 pick. He’s scheduled to work out for Philadelphia on Saturday. So 76ers big man Joel Embiid, with teammate Dario Saric by his side, decided to have a little fun and post a selfie in front of a locker that included Fultz’s nameplate.
And of course, there was only one message to leave: Trust the Process.

The trade has yet to be confirmed, but this is just an example of how excited the team would be to land such a talented point guard. Pairing Fultz with a group that includes Ben Simmons (who is expected to make his NBA debut next season), Embiid and Saric would give the Sixers a strong young core for the foreseeable future.
Fultz averaged 23.2 points, 5.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds per game during his freshman season at Washington.
