Celtics win NBA draft lottery, Lakers at No. 2 keep pick

They met with Markelle Fultz, expected to be a top three pick, at the National Basketball Association draft combine - one of six teams with which Fultz met there.

"You don't really want to necessarily trade a number one pick in a really good draft for somebody that's halfway thru their career, already making max money", the team's governor and CEO stated. It felt just like winning Game 7 [Monday] night.

The Suns not only lost the lottery, but they dropped two spots from their pre-lottery position to No. 4. I don't know what's happening here. "You know what their adjustments are for you and you get a chance to learn that on their floor, where the pressure is on them because they have to play well at home".

-Mannix said that Kristaps Porzingis likely isn't available via trade, but even if he was, a straight-up trade of Fultz for Porzingis would not be favorable for the Celtics.

We'll also have to wait and find out if Colangelo can dig himself out of the hole he took a shovel to last season. The 2 most storied franchises in National Basketball Association history took the top 2 spots in the lottery, Boston first and LA second. Now, you're getting players to where they realize their power and they're not doing it, and more power to them ...

Boston had traded aging stars Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn years ago in exchange for a plethora of selections, including No. 3 last year (Jaylen Brown) and this gem - via Brooklyn, Boston had 25% odds of picking first - among others.

"Getting the No. 1 pick is very fun".

"Isaiah can play with anybody", Ainge said.

"We can't expect to be a team on the rise this year", Connelly said.

But they made it pretty easy to follow the money: WannaCry's code contained the addresses of three Bitcoin wallets. Don't click on links that you don't recognize, nor download files from people you don't know personally.

-Mannix suggested the best way for the Celtics to try to catch the Cavaliers is to build a roster "organically, and you can do that, and by next year be a team that's so much improved that you are a real threat".

"Being in the third spot in this draft, we can talk about a scenario where we address both the best talent and the best fit for the organization". Among the two that were present, Washington's Markelle Fultz only did team interviews and Kentucky's De'Aaron Fox only did team interviews, measurements and media obligations.

"We have plenty of time to decide what to do, but I would imagine we'll make the pick", Grousbeck said. "I think that we're good at what we do".

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 Lakers, meanwhile, can breathe easy.

If not for former general manager Sam Hinkie, who fleeced the Kings back in 2015, the Sixers would be sitting with the fifth overall pick.

The Charlotte Hornets, Detroit Pistons, Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat will get the final four lottery picks.
