Key trades*: Philly will get the Lakers’ pick if it falls outside the top three. They also have the rights to swap picks with Sacramento inside the top 10.

Whom Philly should draft with the …

No. 1 pick: Markelle Fultz (above)
No. 2 pick: Lonzo Ball
No. 3 pick: Malik Monk

Most likely pick: Malik Monk | G | Fr. | Kentucky

The Sixers have nearly equal odds as the Lakers both for a No. 1 pick and a top-3 pick thanks to their ability to swap picks with the Kings if they end up ahead of them in the lottery. They’ll also be crossing their fingers that the lottery gods push the Lakers down one spot so they can grab two players in the top five.

Philly could use two high lottery picks in this draft to put together an explosive backcourt. The combination of Fultz and Monk is especially intriguing. Adding two explosive scorers and ball handlers to a team with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid would finally give Sixers fans a team with real long-term championship potential.
