It's official. Boston and Philadelphia will finalize a trade for the No. 1 overall pick on Monday, according to David Aldridge. The Celtics will acquire the No. 3 overall pick in the 2017 draft, the Lakers 2018 pick and possibly a 2021 protected first-round pick in exchange for No. 1 overall pick. The 76ers will select Markelle Fultz with the No. 1 overall pick while the Celtics will now decide on the third pick. (David Aldridge on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Fultz will be the top pick in this year's draft and will be worth a look in the middle of re-draft leagues as the starting point guard in Philadelphia. Fultz can knock down shots and play off Ben Simmons alongside Dario Saric and Joel Embiid. T.J. McConnell loses out the most with this news.
