The Los Angeles Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans took the NBA world by storm when they agreed on a trade that sent Anthony Davis to Los Angeles.

However, the New Orleans Pelicans weren't done just yet. On draft night, the Pelicans traded the No. 4 pick, which the team acquired from the Lakers, to the Atlanta Hawks.

That's not the only trade thus far, though. The Minnesota Timberwolves jumped up to the No. 6 spot from No. 11 by sending Dario Saric to the Phoenix Suns.

Now, another major trade just went down.

The Boston Celtics agreed on a trade that will sent Mattise Thybulle to the Philadelphia 76ers for the No. 24 and No. 33 picks in the 2019 NBA draft.

Here's the news from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Washington Huskies star becomes the next young player on a roster full of talent for the 76ers.

Boston, meanwhile, loads up on extra picks to replace Kyrie Irving and Al Horford - both of whom will likely not be on the team next season.

Earlier in the draft, the Celtics selected former Indiana star Romeo Langford with the final lottery pick.

Stay tuned for the latest from the NBA draft.
