NBA Draft: Top 10 players under 20

NBA Draft: Top 10 players under 20

Do you take [Fultz], knowing that probably in 4-5 years he's going to be at the peak of his game, but other guys are going be past the peak of their game?

The 2017 NBA Draft order was finalized on Tuesday night after the draft lottery, as the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers walked away with the top three picks. One spot surely won't make a difference, especially for the targets they reportedly want. "Anybody can help us".

Brooklyn finished with the worst record in the league but the Celtics had the right to swap picks with them from the 2013 draft-night trade that sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Nets. "We look forward to a young player that we'll be able to draft next month".

Boston may also land a big free agent star this offseason, so Celtics fans should be nothing but excited.

After all, it was Hinkie who orchestrated a trade with the Sacramento Kings - a heist, rather - obtaining Nik Stauskas, a protected first-rounder, and swap rights to the Kings' first-round pick this year just to absorb the salaries on Carl Landry and Jason Thompson. The assets they acquired in the DeMarcus Cousins trade have turned out pretty solid. 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.

"I think point guard is obviously a priority, and luckily in this draft there are a lot of point guards, so they should get a good player".

As mentioned, the Celtics can add any player they want - Washington guard Markelle Fultz seems to be the consensus best player in the draft.

Mauricio Pochettino admitted Tottenham blew their big chance to keep the title race alive after the 1-0 defeat at West Ham. But you have to win". "Now it's more hard to try to catch Chelsea but we need to try, always to the end". 'I feel calm .

With the Lakers moving up to No. 2 and the Celtics getting the top pick, there isn't much maneuvering to be done - just a choice of whether the Celtics might trade the pick to improve with a veteran or keep the pick and deal with the fallout later.

The Boston Celtics can benefit in a big way from trading two former champions, while the Los Angeles Lakers hope a failed trade for one point guard won't cost them a shot at another.

The Lakers, though, drafted a point guard two years ago in Russell. It seems to me like the National Basketball Association pushed the Suns out on objective to make room for the big markets. Boston also got the Nets' first-round picks in 2014, 2016 and 2018.

The Magic got the sixth pick, followed by the Timberwolves, the Knicks and the Mavericks.

AP Basketball Writer Brian Mahoney in NY contributed to this report.

In the end, the Celtics and Lakers were the big victor on lottery night. "With a team like that, the defending champions, you can't let them hit first".
