It was fun watching the confetti rain down as Sixers fans at an outdoor draft party cheered raucously as Fultz's name was announced by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver as the No. 1 pick.

"I'd just say we want Joel to be on the team for a long time", Harris said. "We anticipate a full, healthy roster".

While Colangelo said he expects all three of the foreign players to spend the 2017-18 season overseas, the Sixers seem especially intrigued by Pasecniks.

"I was just waking up", Fultz wrote of when he learned from his trainer, Keith, that he was going to work out for the 76ers. LaVar Ball had said his son would only play for the Lakers, and it was clear that would happen when Lonzo got a phone call with the Lakers on the clock.

Meanwhile, the NBA officially drops the curtain on an eventful 2016-2017 NBA season today with the first-ever "NBA Awards Show". "And holding a locker room, growing those guys, helping them navigate National Basketball Association life and National Basketball Association games is a very powerful message when it comes from a player".

Fans in Philadelphia are as excited as they've been about the Sixers in at least a decade, and who can blame them?

This year, Trudeau walked with fellow dignitaries, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Toronto Mayor John Tory . For Jessica Harding, a 35-year-old Chicago resident, the parade meant both.

They waited two years for Dario Saric to come from his overseas commitments. (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. Furthermore, 10 of the lottery's first 11 picks comprised of one-and-done college players.

The Sixers made four picks in the second round: UCLA and Australian forward Jonah Bolden; Oklahoma State guard Jawun Evans, SMU guard Sterling Brown and power forward Mathias Lessort out of France.

"We're going to try to make the right decisions to finish this project", Colangelo said.

It was inevitable, we all saw it coming: the Sixers are talking an extension to Joel Embiid this summer before he hits the free agent market in 2018 as a restricted free agent.
