Ainge sees no risk in making trade

No other player in the draft is a difference maker next season for Boston, and the Celtics will still get a great player when they pick third overall Thursday night.

"Well it's never easy negotiating with Boston because they're smart guys - and I'm talking about [Celtics assistant general manager] Mike Zarren and not Danny Ainge, by the way", Colangelo said. All of this could be a factor in whether the Lakers make a deal with the Pacers for Paul George now or whether they (wisely) wait on the All-Star in free agency next summer. IN will have a hard time getting anything of significant value for George, but the chance at a top-three pick in a package from the Celtics should be enticing enough to pull off the trade. The Celtics would take whichever one is more favorable. In trading for a player at Butler's caliber, the Celtics would get a solid two-way star who would make an impact right away. Boston's additional compensation, the future first-rounder, necessitated more of an explanation.

Griffin's departure comes three days before the draft - the Cavs are now without a pick - and on the eve of free agency.

For now, Boston has seven first-round selections in the next three years.

Philadelphia will pair Fultz, a high-scoring point guard out of the University of Washington, with Simmons, last year's No 1 overall pick who missed the entire season with a foot injury.

Godsey & Gibb Associates Has $998000 Position in Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI)
News stories about Kinder Morgan Management (NYSE:KMR) have trended positive this week, according to Alpha One Sentiment Analysis. The pipeline company reported $0.17 earnings per share for the quarter, missing analysts' consensus estimates of $0.18 by $0.01.

It also highlights that both teams have very experienced front office executives who are doing everything in their power to put their respective organizations in the best possible position to get better, maximizing what they can get with their assets. "But we're not afraid of that".

The Sixers signed Jerryd Bayless (who missed nearly the entire year due to injury), Gerald Henderson and Sergio Rodriguez as those veteran players last season. In 2014, he was playing junior varsity basketball in high school in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

There is the outside chance the Celtics hold onto the third pick and select one of Washington's Markelle Fultz, UCLA's Lonzo Ball or Kansas' Josh Jackson.

For the Sixers, they add the playmaking, franchise point guard they've been coveting during their rebuilding "process" to stand alongside Joel Embiid and the still-yet-to-debut Aussie phenom Ben Simmons. The point guard averaged 23.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.9 assists for the 9-22 Huskies. He was the top freshman scorer in the country. "This pick provides us a tremendous opportunity to add another foundational player to our promising core". "It's a deep (draft) class, but we felt the move from three to one was worth the cost of a first-round pick in the future".
