  • 2017 NBA draft lottery Results selection order

Sentinel and Enterprise staff photos can be ordered by visiting our SmugMug site. It's safe to say two is the Lakers' lucky number. They would have had to trade it to Philadelphia if it fell outside the top three. Regardless of which direction the franchise goes, this lottery helped the Lakers future. They had the best odds of doing so, courtesy of a brilliant 2013 trade by president of basketball operations Danny Ainge, in which he fleeced the woeful Brooklyn Nets for draft assets in exchange for a package centered around past-their-prime stars Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.

Boston acquired the Nets' 2014, 2016 and 2018 first-round picks in the deal.

"And look what I leave behind for the Celts on my way out #1 pick", Pierce wrote on Twitter, following by some celebratory emojis.

Over the next several weeks the Lakers will be working tirelessly to presumably pick a top choice and a second choice on their draft board in case Boston selects their primary choice.

"I would like to see Melo stay", the MSG Network commentator said, via ESPN. Cleveland certainly won't trade one of its best players to its most unsafe competitor, and the Bulls and Pacers seem determined to keep Butler and George.

One Celtics superfan (and his three young boys) had a particularly enthusiastic reaction Tuesday night to his team's stroke of lottery luck. Or do they continue to be patient and try to be the best team in three years when, in theory, LeBron starts to fade? Minnesota snapped that streak by getting eventual Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns in 2015 and Philadelphia emerged with Ben Simmons last season.

"It's busy", Grousbeck said. Phoenix will get the fourth overall pick.

Not only that, but they would have had to trade their 2019 first-round pick to Orlando if that happened, so Johnson was all smiles even after finishing behind the rival Celtics. "The only thing he really isn't is a great shooter, but as you know, the Suns have some shooters like Devin Booker already in the backcourt that can reduce the impact of having one guy that isn't a great shooter". "We won five in a row and everybody thought we were insane". Then all of a sudden there was a little misdirection by one of the envelopes, and then it got right back on track. The Kings will select fifth and 10th.
