PBT Extra: Sixers go after own big three with trade for No. 1 pick

Joel Embiid. Ben Simmons. Markelle Fultz.

Could that be Philadelphia’s  big three of the future? Embiid thought enough of it to Tweet out a photo from Fultz’s workout with the Sixers.

That’s what they are hoping for in trading for the No. 1 pick, a deal I break down in this latest PBT Extra.

For Boston, they may draft Josh Jackson (or Jayson Tatum), but this feels like the first the first domino in a series of moves for them to bolster the roster. Or, maybe Danny Ainge just wasn’t sold on Fultz.

But the Sixers are.
