2017 NBA Draft picks: Complete results, full list of players selected

The Philadelphia 76ers selected point guard Markelle Fultz with the top pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, while Lonzo Ball went to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Having previously worked out a trade with the Boston Celtics that moved the 76ers from the number three pick up to number one, it was clear the franchise coveted Fultz’s size and athleticism to run their offense.

Fultz, who spent just one season at Washington, averaged 23.2 points, 5.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds per game.

Ball was taken by the Lakers, while Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics), Josh Jackson (Phoenix Suns) and De’Aaron Fox (Sacramento Kings) rounded out the top five.

Meanwhile, a blockbuster trade was also completed as Jimmy Butler joined the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Butler and pick 16 Justin Patton headed to Minnesota, while the Chicago Bulls received number seven pick Lauri Markkanen, Kris Dunn and Zach LaVine.
