Celtics nab top overall pick

Celtics nab top overall pick

The Celtics won by beating out the Lakers, giving the draft lottery an old NBA Finals feel. With the Cleveland Cavaliers still considered the top team in the NBA Eastern Conference, the Celtics need players that have produced, and will continue to do so. "We can't allow a team of their caliber to build a lead like that in the first quarter. I'm going to keep talking about it until it happens". "It's pretty fantastic", said Wyc Grousbeck, a Celtics owner who represented them on stage.

Meanwhile, the Lakers are in a prime spot for post-Kobe Bryant redemption as they could walk away with a top young talent or trade that pick along with Jordan Clarkson to the Indiana Pacers for Paul George. "Obviously, we would've loved to be in the top two or three, but it was what I expected", Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough said.

On July 12, 2013, the Celtics sent Pierce along with Kevin Garnett, Jason Terry, and D.J. White to the Brooklyn Nets.

The Celtics not only won the first overall pick, they also have four total picks in this draft. Thanks to the lowly Brooklyn Nets, the Celtics are in a rare, yet enviable position.

'And look what I leave behind for the Celts on my way out No 1 pick, ' Pierce wrote on Twitter, followed by some celebratory emojis.

Bryan Colangelo believes the Philadelphia 76ers will be able to land a talented, skilled player with the No. 3 overall pick in the June 22 NBA Draft. Beyond being the second best prospect in this draft class, his outspoken father LaVar Ball famously stated in February that Lonzo will "only play for the Lakers" before backtracking somewhat with the following: "All I said was that my boy is going to play for the Lakers". "We are not going to jump ahead of ourselves". If I get [No.] 1, I'm good.

'It's two completely different situations, ' Celtic executive Danny Ainge said on Tuesday night after the team won the National Basketball Association draft lottery. The playoffs have been rather bland by comparison to previous years, and an Eastern Conference finalist had the best odds to win the top pick in the draft.

Fultz, out of Washington, and Ball, out of UCLA, are the draft's top two point guards. "That's just a hard trade to make", he said, according to WBZ News' Adam Kaufman.

Pogba to face Palace; Gomes, 16, in squad
Manchester United signed France midfielder Paul Pogba in a world-record £89m deal from Serie A champions Juventus last summer.

Furthermore, if the Lakers had fallen out of the top three, they would have had to give their 2019 first-round pick to the Orlando Magic, a fallout of the Dwight Howard trade shortly after the Nash trade.

The Celtics will be the first No. 1 seed to pick No. 1 overall in the draft the same year. "We're excited though. You know we're excited", Johnson said. And now we squeeze in the lottery and win the pick. Trading back isn't as easy as trading back in the National Football League draft considering there are only two rounds an NBA draft, but that could be a possibility as well.

Their mild good fortune was the result of their multi-layered 2015 trade with the Sacramento Kings that yielded Nik Stauskas, among other perks, including the right to swap 2017 first-round picks.

Thomas was the last overall pick by the Sacramento Kings in the 2011 draft.
