Celtics To Interview Top Draft Prospect Markelle Fultz In Chicago

The Knicks are scheduled to meet with projected top pick Markelle Fultz in Chicago during the NBA Draft Combine, according to ESPN's Ian Begley. Concerns about Fox are centered around his jump shot as he attempted just 69 threes and shot 24.6 percent from beyond the arc. Fultz is not participating in the five-on-five drills that begin today, nor will he conduct media interviews.

Fultz is widely viewed as the prize of this year's draft class, and there is little debate over whether to choose him or UCLA's Lonzo Ball with the top selection.

Wizards forward Kelly Oubre will be back on the court in Game 5 against the Celtics tonight at TD Garden after serving his one-game suspension for shoving the C's Kelly Olynyk in Game 3.

Five players, including Fultz, the potential top-overall pick, hadn't celebrated their first birthday when Carter and Nowitzki made their National Basketball Association debuts on February 5, 1999 (the 1998-99 National Basketball Association season did not begin until this date due to a lockout).

The Lakers will have a 46.9 percent chance of retaining their top-three protected pick for this year's draft.

That means Alkins (Team 1) and Allen (2) will face each other in the first game, while Simmons will play in the second one. They will not even break a sweat on the floor.

The Magic potentially have four picks in the upcoming NBA Draft and have a lot of homework to do.

For the Lakers, the group of Luke Walton, Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka are in Chicago for the Combine and will get ample time for first impressions on Fox and Fultz.

The Boston Celtics have the best odds to win the 2017 NBA Draft Lottery and earn the No. 1 pick. "I kind of knew that was my last ride, but that doesn't stop my competitive juices from flowing".

"He doesn't have the polish of a Fultz or Ball, or the speed or raw athleticism of Fox or Smith".
