Celtics follow euphoria of winning lottery with dud on court

I personally would keep the two picks unless there is some great deal that the Kings front office just can't say no to.

"It's good to be at three", Colangelo said on Thursday.

The players selected in the second round will be underdogs from day one, and many of them will be battling for a roster spot for the first time in their lives. They would have had to trade it to Philadelphia if it fell outside the top three.

In an enthusiastic interview with CBS2, LaVar Ball said loud and clear that Lonzo will absolutely go to the Lakers. "I'm going to speak it into existence".

When Pierce, Garnett and Jason Terry - remember him? - showed up in Brooklyn one month after then-Nets general manager Billy King mortgaged the foreseeable future for their services, the move was created to get the franchise back to the NBA Finals for the first time since they made back-to-back trips there in 2002-03.

Brooklyn finished with the worst record (20-62) and have very little to show for it.

"And look what I leave behind for the Celts on my way out (No. 1) pick", Pierce wrote on Twitter.

SI.com has Jackson going fourth to the Phoenix Suns, behind Fultz, Ball and Dukes' Jayson Tatum.

"He's excited", Thomas said.

Embiid then doubled down: "Hopefully we take that pick".

The Celtics were going to be in prime position no matter how the Ping-Pong balls bounced in a hotel ballroom Tuesday. Both play the point guard position, however, which the Celtics have locked up at least through next season with All-Star Isaiah Thomas wreaking havoc in the backcourt. Jordan Bell may have a lot of room to improve offensively, he still has the mold of a player any team would want. Luck was still needed despite having 25.0 percent odds-the team with the best chance at No. 1 never won the lottery from 2005-2014.

That group will include Ben Simmons, a 6-10 do-it all player who sat out last season with a foot injury. With that top pick, most experts believe that Markelle Fultz from the Washington Huskies is the player to select based on his resume. I mean, really, the top seed with the top pick? "He's one of the best defenders in the class, physically ready to contribute, and a consistent jumper away from growing into a tremendous player". While "Moose" has been a solid contributor for the team, specifically this season, overall the Bucks' 2015 offseason has to be deemed a disappointment. Zilch. Zippo. If so (God forbid) and you think they were bad last year, if L.A, . walks away with nada, next year probably won't be much different.

Pierce may have been trying to remind Bean Towners how much future talent he helped them acquire by agreeing to be dealt to the Nets four years ago, but in so doing, he took a poke at Brooklynites who aren't exactly in the mood these days.

The New York Knicks have struggled mightily on the court for most of the past two decades.
