It's time for No. 1 pick Fultz to turn 76ers into winners

Philadelphia 76ers draft pick Markelle Fultz left speaks during a news conference with team president Bryan Colangelo at the team's NBA basketball training complex Friday

Although Embiid attributed Sixers fans for the new label, the 23-year-old added fuel to the fire when he tweeted out "the FEDS are coming" after Philly selected Fultz with the top pick in Thursday's National Basketball Association draft.

Embiid and Dario Saric will finish in the top three when rookie of the year results get announced on June 26, and Simmons is expected to be ready for next season after recovering from foot surgery.

The No. 1 overall pick in this National Basketball Association draft has become an instant fan favorite before signing his rookie contract. "That's not just me talking because I'm a player, I really think that we can do that".

Be proactive - Use the "Flag as Inappropriate" link at the upper right corner of each comment to let us know of abusive posts. "Once he figured out I had a chance to go there, he started showing more love and everything like that". (They were even teammates on a Latvian age-group national team, and Pasecniks followed the Porzingis line by playing in the strong competition of Spain's Liga ACB before going into the draft.) Philly addressed a pressing concern in the first round, twice. Second-round picks Jonah Bolden and power forward Mathias Lessort out of France also won't join the team next season. They also signed undrafted IN guard James Blackmon to a contract IN which he'll play for them IN the summer league (s), attend training camp and play for D-League affiliate the DE 87ers if he doesn't crack the team's 15-man roster.

"He plays with reckless abandon and some of that has got to be controlled", Colangelo said. How coach (Brett Brown) mixes and matches those pieces is going to be up to him.




"When you look at the makeup of our team", Colangelo said. Shortly after announcing the trade up to the top pick last Monday, Philadelphia sold a franchise record 14,000 season ticket packages and projects to sell out every home game for the upcoming season.

"FEDS" is the nickname of the 76ers potential starters for next season.

It takes time to build chemistry on the court and this young Sixers core needs time together. Fultz was cut from his varsity high school basketball team in his sophomore year, and even though many told him to transfer and not risk missing out on a potential collegiate and pro career, he and his mom made a decision to stay and prove the doubters wrong. There just can't be minute restrictions next season.

"Well, we've talked about doing whatever we need to do to win", Fultz said.

Then Keith [Fultz's trainer] hit me up and said, "New plan".
