Fultz, Embiid fully believe Sixers are a playoff team

Fultz, who Philadelphia selected with the No. 1 overall pick out of Washington in Thursday's draft, joins a young Sixers core that also includes Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Dario Saric and Jahlil Okafor.

"Everything we are doing with this roster is designed with a championship in mind", said team president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo.

"Everybody knows A.I.is known for the crossover and they love him here and a chance to come here and he [too] was the No. 1 pick is kind of insane", Fultz said.

Born in Barrie, Ontario, Frost can root for any team he wants growing up and fans should probably give him some slack on these tweets surfacing, but a message to everyone on the night before you're going to get drafted: go through your feed and delete anything that could find its way onto this blog. "But on the sadistic side, it is completely exciting to me". So even before they made it official last night, it seemed that the Sixers and Markelle Fultz was a match made in heaven.

As for the idea that Embiid might be able to play in back-to-back games and not on a minutes restriction after dealing with both previous year, Brown replied, "I think that's ambitious".

Some would say the same about Fultz's belief that the Sixers are a playoff team after averaging 63 losses the past four seasons.

"Joel will come out and [say] something similar", Sixers head coach Brett Brown said. "How can you not respect it?". That would allow them to match another team's offer sheet to retain him or for Embiid to play in 2018-19 for that amount, though he'd become unrestricted in 2019 if he did so.

"And you circle back, if it's delivered, you got to own it, you got to practice like that, you got to act like that, you got to be that".

"You don't really hear that story a lot. That's the way I would put it".
