Another big win: Celtics get first pick in NBA draft

General manager Tim Connelly will also be there.

If the Lakers keep their 2017 pick, then it is no longer a protected pick next year and they would only lose two second round picks to Orlando.

The 2017 NBA Draft is one of the more star-studded draft classes in recent memory and the Chicago Bulls will have the 16th overall pick, which means they won't be participating in the draft lottery on Tuesday night.

Coach Brett Brown, who represented the Sixers at the 2016 draft lottery, didn't attend this time.

"I don't know too much about the triangle", Fox said. This came on the heels of losing 2014 third-overall pick Joel Embiid for the first two campaigns of his career with a foot injury. It became modified with that process, and teams with the worst records had a better chance than others, but weren't guaranteed, a top pick.

The consensus No. 1 overall pick according to most draft analysts, including both ESPN's Chad Ford and Draft Express, is Washington guard Markelle Fultz.

"Our range was one-to-five". Among the potential available wings and shooting guards are North Carolina's Justin Jackson (6-8, 200), Indiana's OG Anunoby (6-8, 232), Louisville's Donovan Mitchell (6-3, 211), Duke's Luke Kennard (6-5 ½, 196) and Terrance Ferguson (6-7, 185), who played overseas this past season in Australia. If the Lakers fall out of the top three, their pick goes to the 76ers, who would get it from Phoenix per terms of a three-team trade with Milwaukee at the 2015 deadline. Boston can select no lower than fourth in the June draft. "There's not a huge drop-off in my opinion after one, two, three".

"I'm feeling good. I think we've got a pretty good chance". Not only did they slide a spot to sixth, they do not get that 2019 Lakers first rounder. Though they had one of the league's most explosive offenses, particularly after making Nikola Jokic the starting center in December, their biggest downfall was an anemic defense that ranked 29th in the National Basketball Association, ahead of only the Lakers. Meanwhile, he has mastered the snake dribble - a mid-range move numerous best point guards use to get shots between the 3-point arc and the rim. He was joined by 11-year-old Suns fan and Special Olympian Noah Smith. The Celtics have never had the first pick in the common draft era (1966). The draft is of monumental importance. "That's how we view it", McDonough said.

- Pre-draft workouts are expected to begin by the end of the month. A team will surely be willing to take a chance on Ferguson in the draft because of his upside.

Why do they play the games? Those minutes took a toll. He said the Knicks didn't have an identity and said he would be more of a "mentor" this upcoming season.
