Draft week: Markelle Fultz is a Sixer, and Paul George doesn't want to be a Pacer

Draft week: Markelle Fultz is a Sixer, and Paul George doesn't want to be a Pacer

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - June 19, 2017 - 1:07:04

On today's show, Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver talk through this weekend's Sixers-Celtics trade, and what it means for both teams. Why was Fultz so valuable to the Sixers? How did they make this happen with only one extra pick? How does this affect Sharp's ongoing feud with Sixers fans, and how does it affect the future of Ben Simmons? Does it validate the Process? Then: A closer look at the Celtics side of the deal, and some rationale that still seems pretty puzzling. At the end: What should the Pacers look for in a Paul George deal? Would the '18 Nets pick be enough? Can Nike use illuminati powers to put him in Cleveland? And the question of the week: what will the Lakers do?
