Lonzo Ball: Lonzo Ball will only work out for Lakers?


On Tuesday, the Celtics got the No. 1 pick in the draft at the draft lottery, via a pick swap with the Brooklyn Nets.

In 1986, the lottery was not decided based on a team's record, but on what teams logo would be drawn first from a bingo-style bucket. Allen was not interviewed during the ESPN broadcast, but he was in the background during interviews of other top Draft picks. They were guaranteed no worse than the No. 4 pick to add to a team that had the best record in the East this season behind All-Star Isaiah Thomas.

However, the Celtics could also revisit trade talks with teams like the Chicago Bulls or Indiana Pacers for stars Jimmy Butler or Paul George and dangle that No. 1 pick. Utah's hopes of retaining Hayward became more hard Thursday, as Hayward's absence from the All-NBA teams means the forward can't sign a super-max contract with the Jazz.

The Celtics obtained the pick from the Nets in 2013 and had a 25 percent of getting the top pick.

Of course, the Celtics don't have to oblige.

The Celtics are going to have a high draft pick in this upcoming draft and have many options they can go from.

"It's two completely different situations: One is a lot about the future, and one is in the present", Celtics president Danny Ainge said.

The draft is considered a strong one, loaded with point guards such as Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball and De'Aaron Fox.

The Knicks, represented at the proceedings in a private room at the New York Hilton Midtown by a dapper Walt Frazier, could finish anywhere in the order from first to tenth.

As unfathomable as it may seem, the Sixers could be seen as a "win now" team beginning this year. It's been 50 years as an organization and the Suns still have never owned the top pick in the draft. "We're not far away, and we like our direction, and we like the evolution of this team, and how we project out", Colangelo said.

'We have plenty of time to decide what to do, but I would imagine we'll make the pick, ' Grousbeck said.

The Lakers will select second and 28th overall in the first round of the draft.

The 76ers, who used the top overall pick in Ben Simmons a year ago, will select third.

"That guy better be pretty good because if you're drafting No. 1 and you make the pick well - you do really draft a transcendent player - you've got that player for five or six years as they build up before the max money even kicks in". I like action. But we have a good group of guys around us.
