Should Boston Celtics Keep the First Pick or Not? Team Entertaining Offers?

Rita Gibson | 19 May, 2017, 06:22

NBA Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum, left, poses with Boston Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck after the Celtics won the first pick in the NBA draft at the draft lottery Tuesday in NY.

"I think there's going to be 50 kids that's going to be in this draft that are going to be well-known", he said.

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

Our data has shown guards to be more hard to project than big men at the next level, as some guards are able to transfer their shooting to the National Basketball Association while others possess shooting flaws that aren't exposed until they play against bigger and faster defenses in the National Basketball Association.

Keeping the Fultz pick and holding tight to the teams' current roster would be risky, as the Celtics aren't assured a star in free agency, but if it pays off, they could have enough to compete among the league's best.

It was the first time the Celtics had ever won the lottery. They will surprise us because they will be one of a few teams with multiple picks in the first round.

I don't know what's happening here.

The latter was, in fact, a tribute to a fellow grunge musician, Andy Wood, who died under similarly tragic circumstances. The band had been on a headline tour of North America and had material for a new album when Cornell passed suddenly.

"He's excited", Thomas said. The Lakers had reportedly turned down a potential D'Angelo Russell trade ahead of February's NBA Trade deadline when the Sacramento Kings made DeMarcus Cousins available. "Those are the types of guys that Magic and I want to build the team around and that's who we'll search for in the draft". He was last year's No. 2 pick, but he wasn't exactly mindblowing in his rookie season, averaging 9.4 points, 4 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.

The Celtics were going to be in prime position no matter how the Ping-Pong balls bounced in a hotel ballroom Tuesday.

But in the Lou Williams trade, the team picked up Houston's first-rounder this year, the 28th overall pick. Can a back court of PG Isaiah Thomas and National Basketball Association shooting guard Markelle Fultz work?

While Ball is the most likely selection with the no. 2 pick, the Lakers may end up with point guard Markelle Fultz out of Washington. "And you get to max money eventually - five, six years down the road - but it's a totally different thing". To make matters worse, the Celtics have the Nets first round pick in 2018 as well.

"We may try to maximize those in terms of going to visit a guy in his hometown or where he's working out for say 24-48 hours and then bringing him here to Phoenix for the other visit", McDonough said. "A lot of people want the picks, but we just didn't think we were getting the value for the pick". "So now the fans back home can breathe a little easier". They would have had to surrender their pick to the 76ers if they had not landed in the top three.

Down in New York, Grousbeck, representing the team on stage while fellow co-owner Steve Pagliuca was in the draw room, laughed about being in the final three alongside Los Angeles' Magic Johnson and Philadelphia's Joel Embiid. Charlotte is No. 11, with Detroit, Denver and Miami rounding out the 14 lottery spots.

The draft will be held on June 22.
