The Celtics 2017-18 season schedule will be released in August, but a game against the 76ers has been scheduled for Jan. 11, 2018 in London, according to Yahoo Sports. 

This European game will also include the eagerly anticipated match up between the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft, Markelle Fultz and the No. 3 pick Jayson Tatum. Both have proved promising NBA debuts in the summer league thus far. Fultz averaged eight points and two rebounds at 15 minutes per game, but has been sidelined for an ankle injury and will miss the remainder of the summer league, according to USA Today. Tatum is averaging 17.7 points and eight rebounds while shooting the ball 42.2 percent from the field. 

Meanwhile, the Celtics will face the Golden State Warriors on Thursday at 6 p.m. in the Las Vegas Summer League.
