We are now just three days away from the 2016 NBA Draft. The Boston Celtics have the 3rd overall pick, but are looking to see if there are any teams around the league that are interested in a trade.
The Sixers have the first overall pick in the draft, but are looking into dealing for another pick in the top five. With the Celtics putting their 3rd pick on the trade block, the Sixers have emerged as an attractive trade partner.
Celts and Sixers trade talk heats up. Philly really really wants Dunn per Tim Welsch. @CSNNE

The Sixers are in need of a point guard for the future and Kris Dunn would be the perfect addition. Ish Smith is currently holding down the fort as the starting point guard in Philadelphia, but he doesn't seem to be their future at that position.
Kris Dunn is a more than reasonable option to take over the point guard duties in Philly. The only problem will be offering the Celtics enough to be able to get the 3rd pick in return. At this point, Jahlil Okafor seems like the player that Boston would ask for.
Big Jah had a solid rookie season with the Sixers, but with the plethora of big men that they already have, he appears to be expendable. Jahlil Okafor could step in to be the future center for the Celtics as they look for more of a paint presence on the offensive end.
