Paul Pierce says Celtics should trade No. 1 overall pick

Bad luck for the Suns or is the NBA Draft Lottery rigged

The only thing that could possibly make this week better for Boston would be a Wednesday night victory over the Cavs in Game One.

"That felt pretty good", Grousbeck said after the draft lottery results were revealed.

"It's two completely different situations: One is a lot about the future, and one is in the present", Celtics President Danny Ainge said.

"This is one of the deepest drafts I've seen. We could get a little help for tomorrow night".

"Being in the third spot in this draft, we can talk about a scenario where we address both the best talent and the best fit for the organization".

Boston could take a long look at Arizona's Lauri Markkanen, a 7-foot, 230-pound power forward who can score in the paint or step outside and hit 3-pointers.

WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) — The Boston Celtics have a No. 1 seed and the No. 1 pick.

Four years ago, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett played their final games for the Celtics. Bring him in before the max salaries kick in.

And if the Celtics don't play any better than they did in the first half of the opener, that could be it. With the first overall pick past year, they drafted forward Ben Simmons out of LSU.

"You trade this pick, because [Markelle Fultz] can not help the Celtics get over the top", Pierce told The Jump.

But the Celtics' choice is not important; L.A. got exactly what it needed this year.

ESPN lists Markelle Fultz, Ball, De'Aaron Fox, Josh Jackson and Jayson Tatum as candidates to be selected first overall.

The Celtics obtained the pick from the Nets in 2013 and had a 25 percent of getting the top pick.

The Purple and Gold own the second pick in this summer's NBA Draft.

The timing was flawless for the Celtics, as Brooklyn finished with the worst record in the league.

The Boston Celtics will drat first, followed by the Los Angeles Lakers and then the Philadelphia 76ers will make their selection before Phoenix. It seems to me like the National Basketball Association pushed the Suns out on goal to make room for the big markets.

The Celtics also get another first-round pick in 2018 from the Nets.

The Knicks, represented at the proceedings in a private room at the New York Hilton Midtown by a dapper Walt Frazier, could finish anywhere in the order from first to tenth. Fultz also has a fairly high floor, making him less of a risk than most top prospects. A player like Butler or George certainly would bolster the Celtics' roster, but as Wojnarowski notes, it would come at a big cost.
