Jimmy Butler and Tom Thibodeau hope to rekindle their past. When he heard the news that he was working out for the Sixers, Fultz's first thought was about fast-food chicken sandwiches.

Moments after LaVar Ball went on TV and declared of his son, "From the words of Zeus, Jesus, everybody said he gonna be a Laker", Simmons simply tweeted, "Crazy pills".

Thibodeau has enough young players in Minnesota and wanted a veteran like he had during his successful run coaching the Bulls.

Ball, the 6-6 playmaking wizard, will have the keys to the Lakers' offense after the trade of combo guard D'Angelo Russell, who was one of the top players in the 2016 Vegas Summer League and now plays for the Brooklyn Nets. He has missed 215 of a possible 246 games since being the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 draft.

While speaking candidly with Warriors' teammate during a baseball game, Durant questioned why they gave themselves a nickname well before they even played a game together. The Sixers acquired the No. 1 pick in a deal with Boston for the third pick, plus an additional first-rounder in either 2018 or 2019.

With the 76ers' selection of Markelle Fultz on Thursday's National Basketball Association draft, Joel Embiid and the rest of Philadelphia are legitimately excited about the Sixers. Despite the precautionary steps, Embiid played in only 31 games and needed surgery on his left knee in March.

Colangelo said Embiid would have no minutes' restrictions this season, provided he stays healthy.

I was just waking up.

Everyone wants to see what Embiid, Simmons, Fultz and Dario Saric can do on the court.

Fox ended up in the same state as Ball, who he outplayed when Kentucky ousted UCLA in the NCAA Tournament.

In fact, Sixers managing owner Josh Harris just recently indicated that signing Embiid to an extension is the team's top off-season priority. In fact, Duke sophomore Luke Kennard was the first player with two or more years of college basketball experience to be chosen. Jabari Parker, selected second overall in that draft, had a clean bill of health on draft night and has since torn his ACL twice.
