Celtics get top draft pick, Lakers second

  • Bad luck for the Suns or is the NBA Draft Lottery rigged

And having the No. 1 pick this year, and potentially the No. 1 overall pick again next year with Brooklyn's pick again, he doesn't have to take that kind of a risk.

Boston Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck, left, Magic Johnson, president of basketball operations for the Los Angeles Lakers, center, and Philadelphia 76ers' Joel Embiid, right, react after the learning they will get one of the first three picks as the NBA basketball draft lottery is announced, Tuesday, May 16, 2017, in NY. Boston also got the Nets' first-round picks in 2014, 2016 and 2018.

"This is pretty good", said Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck. But right now, it's just good to have clarity as to where everybody is in the draft.

So, after Tuesday night's lottery took place, we put it to a vote on Twitter.

Though there is plenty of posturing around the draft, keeping the pick certainly makes plenty of sense for the Celtics, even if the projected No. 1 pick, Markelle Fultz, is a point guard - the same position as current Celtics star Isaiah Thomas. "Obviously we would have loved to move up, but this isn't a two- or three-player draft".

The Lakers and their fans were anxiously waiting to see if they would get a top-three pick in the draft in June - if it fell below three, the Philadelphia 76ers would get the pick, a fallout from the Steve Nash trade in 2012. The Lakers also have the No. 28 pick, which in normal years might not mean much but could be important with this year's deep draft class.

According to ESPN , Thomas recently revealed to reporters that he is talking to Fultz and they are good friends. Now that the Celtics officially have that pick, it gives them much more leverage to pull off a deal.

The 76ers were awarded the third pick, with the Suns, who had the second-best odds of capturing the first pick, dropping to No. 4.

Colangelo, the Sixers' president of basketball operations, is hoping the player they add will fit well with the team's uptempo pace. "There really was no way to walk out of here disappointed given the possible outcomes we faced". "What we say all the time is we leave all our options open".

Phoenix will get the fourth overall pick in its eighth straight lottery appearance.

Sacramento actually moved up into the top three, but the 76ers had the right to swap with them through terms of a past trade.

The Knicks could have picked as high as sixth but lost a coin flip with the Minnesota Timberwolves, who finished with the same record.

The Dallas Mavericks are ninth and the New Orleans Pelicans are 10th. In the deal that sent DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans, the Kings received promising guard Buddy Hield and the Pelicans first-round pick. Hornets; 12. Pistons; 13.
