Celtics seek top pick, Lakers aim to keep theirs in lottery

Prior to the lottery, the draft was sorted out by a simple coin flip. If they have the number one pick or Markelle Fultz is still on the board the Celtics should draft him. Now, let's get to the Top 50 NBA Draft Prospects.

As of now, this is what the league uses and this is what the fans, teams, coaches and GM's have to deal with for now. "I did that decision last summer when I chose to sign on", Nowitzki explained after completing the first season of a reported two-year deal worth $50 million.

Most lottery teams won't call it a tragedy if they fall a spot or two in the lottery or don't get the top pick. It always comes back to him, doesn't it?

"If you're a team and you're uncomfortable about a medical situation, you're rolling the dice and hopefully teams have scouted these guys well, which I believe they have", Fraschilla said.

The 2017 NBA Draft Lottery is Tuesday night, May 16, and there's a ton at stake. Undrafted players Hinkie found off the proverbial scrap heap, like Robert Covington and TJ McConnell, took unexpected, and borderline outlier leaps in their development. But the most likely scenario is that the Heat's logo will be in the first envelope that is opened and they will end up with the 14th pick.

At the 2015 National Basketball Association trade deadline, the Philadelphia 76ers acquired the Los Angeles Lakers' conditional first round pick for the following draft. Jackson said the Knicks need guards and wings and not big men from this draft.

North Korea Claims Latest Missile Tested Can Carry a Large Nuclear Warhead
No sitting U.S. president has ever met with the leader of North Korea while in power, and the idea is extremely controversial. The missile flew for about 30 minutes, travelling about 800km (500m) before landing in the Sea of Japan, according to Tokyo.

And if the Sixers get the Lakers' pick, that also means Los Angeles must give its first-round pick in 2019 to Orlando under the complicated terms of its 2012 acquisition of Dwight Howard. You can argue the 76ers should hope for the Lakers to keep their pick, because then they get LA's pick, unprotected, in 2018. That trade is somehow still the main source of criticism for anti-Hinkites who still refuse to admit that maybe Hinkie's longest-view-in-the-room approach was the right one.

They originally used envelopes which contained the names of the lottery teams. The team with the best odds entering the lottery has come away with the No. 1 pick just six times since its inception in 1985.

The NBA Draft lottery on Tuesday is an annual event filled with nervousness and excitement for teams picking near the top of the draft.

The young core is obviously a lock to return (though nobody seems untouchable under the new management), but nearly all of the complementary players played on one-year or non-guaranteed contracts this season and they had a chance to make a case to be retained. There are a handful of players that have boat-loads of potential, but also multiple question marks. They now have $55 million dollars in salary cap space, have plenty of paths to take. In addition to those 16 points, Jackson also hauled down 7.4 rebounds per game and dished out three assists along with almost two steals and a block. Injuries derailed the team right from the start. How fast will this team improve?

The Boston Celtics are the rare championship contender in the lottery thanks to a fantastic trade with the Brooklyn Nets in 2013.
