If there’s consensus on the top prospects in the 2017 NBA draft, it’s: 1. Markelle Fultz 2. Lonzo Ball 3. Josh Jackson That squares nicely with the Celtics picking Fultz No. 1 and the Lakers taking Ball No. 2. But what about the 76ers, who pick No. 3? They already have a playmaking forward with a shaky jumper in Ben Simmons. Jackson isn’t the cleanest fit. Even if they plan to deploy Simmons at point guard, they could still use a traditional point guard for support/insurance. Enter De'Aaron Fox and Dennis Smith Jr.
Report: 76ers, with No. 3 pick in NBA draft, like PGs De’Aaron Fox and Dennis Smith Jr.
