New York Met With 2017 NBA Draft Prospect De'Aaron Fox

The order will be set with the National Basketball Association draft lottery on May 16. The working theory is that, come the 2017 NBA Draft, team president Phil Jackson will finally address the need for a star-caliber point guard. Brase is a former UA player and assistant coach who was the head coach of the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers the past two seasons, while Brielmaier is a former UA player now serving as a Nets assistant.

At this point, everyone should know most of the strengths and weaknesses of the top guys in the Draft should the Magic win the Lottery.

Fultz averaged 23.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game as Washington's starting point guard this past season.

There is a 46.9 percent chance they pick in the top three. If they are fortunate enough to keep it, Fox could certainly be in play as a fast, defensive-minded point guard the team lacks. Sometimes teams do not get their first choices of interviews. Even if the Sixers wind up signing a veteran point guard such as Kyle Lowry in free agency, Fultz would be an ideal fit alongside Embiid, Simmons, and Saric. They also may not want him even if he's there.

In addition, the Sixers will have four second-round picks: Nos.

But Maryland's 62-game home winning streak - which stretches from March of 2012 - never seemed in real jeopardy. The Dolphins, ranked No. 4 in the nation, beat No. 3 Adelphi in the NE-10 title game earlier on Sunday.

Fultz is widely viewed as the prize of this year's draft class, and there is little debate over whether to choose him or UCLA's Lonzo Ball with the top selection.

The Magic will send a fairly large contingent to the NBA Draft Combine.

As I noted yesterday, what happens on the court in the drills and scrimmages is as important as what happens in the 30-minutes interviews the team will conduct with the various prospects.

Ding reports that Fox and Jackson (who will not attend the combine) may actually be garnering more interest from the Lakers than Ball or Fultz due to their defensive upside.
