Jonathan Givony of Draft Express wrote on Friday that Magic Johnson is “in love” with Markelle Fultz and may try to move up to No. 1 in order to get him.
The intrigue surrounding the No. 1 pick has reached a fever pitch and it’s only Friday. It’s entirely possible this is the Lakers truly wanting to move up and it could also be any number of things, including Danny Ainge trying to boost the pick’s value or Fultz’s agent trying to ensure he goes No. 1 overall. The rumors will be both fun and laborious for the next week.
