Kevin Durant Isn't Impressed With The Sixers' New 'FEDS' Nickname

Huskies' Markelle Fultz taken No. 1 overall in NBA Draft by 76ers

Sixers take guard Fultz with top pick of NBA Draft

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.

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.

"I feel like the template, the underbelly of the program is ripe and ready to absorb talent", said Sixers coach Brett Brown. As a restricted free agent, Philly would have the ability to match any offer from another team and would be able to extend him to a long-term deal - but it could potentially cost them max-deal money (unless they designate him as their designated player and pay him max-deal money as part of his extension).

With the Sixers finishing with a 28-54 record in the just-ended season, 19-year-old Fultz said it is now all about creating the winning habit and mind-set with the team's other cornerstones.

"I haven't talked to them as far as my role in the team but I'll find a way to fit in with their great core", said Mr. Tatum, who has drawn comparisons with New York All-Star Carmelo Anthony for his varied offensive repertoire.

"Those young guys need nurturing and they need veteran leadership". In 2016, he played in the McDonald's All-American Game.

"We're on the same page in regards to style of play and the identity that we want to have".

But how will these two do in their first year in the National Basketball Association? Furthermore, 10 of the lottery's first 11 picks comprised of one-and-done college players. Second-round picks Jonah Bolden and power forward Mathias Lessort out of France also won't join the team next season.

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