The Boston Celtics will drat first, followed by the Los Angeles Lakers and then the Philadelphia 76ers will make their selection before Phoenix. It seems to me like the National Basketball Association pushed the Suns out on goal to make room for the big markets.
The Celtics also get another first-round pick in 2018 from the Nets.

Fultz also has a fairly high floor, making him less of a risk than most top prospects. A player like Butler or George certainly would bolster the Celtics' roster, but as Wojnarowski notes, it would come at a big cost.
