Celtics follow euphoria of winning lottery with dud on court

The Celtics not only won the first overall pick, they also have four total picks in this draft.

Despite statistically getting the most likely outcome, Tuesday night was not a good night for the Phoenix Suns and their fans. A true European-like big man who can shot 40 percent (45 of 114) from three point range this season, his intelligence and pick-and-pop ability will create matchup trouble for any Celtics opponent. It is very possible that Boston decides to trade for a superstar caliber player with a package centered around the top overall pick.

The dynamic point guard would permanently move D'Angelo Russell to shooting guard going forward. They don't seem to stand much of a chance against the Cavaliers, though.

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

Minnesota Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins, left, and Josh Jackson of Kansas respond to questions during an interview before the NBA basketball draft lottery Tuesday, May 16, 2017, in NY. It's not an ideal situation, to say the least, but the front office knew the rebuild would be somewhat hard. You can grow with him.

The 10th pick is a lot less predictable, but we should have a better idea of what the Kings are looking for out of that spot once workout season kicks off, and the rumor mill starts churning. When talking about Steve Clifford, Rich added that "I think he has done a really good job". The rest of the league was intently watching because with those 2 franchises landing on top, it increases the likelihood of a blockbuster trade this summer involving someone such as Paul George or Jimmy Butler. However, the Celtics are the team to watch. That is a guy who can help this team immediately.

If you have half a brain, you know you don't have to pick in the top five to find All-Stars. Fultz is considered the most talented player in the draft and could be the "most ready" to contribute.

University of Washington alum Isaiah Thomas might have a fellow husky on the court with him next season. He also reiterated that he isn't a fan of players resting. Hayward averaged 24.1 points in the postseason, which was above his regular season average of 21.9 per game. In the 2017 NBA Playoffs, Hayward and the Jazz found themselves swept by the Golden State Warriors.

The Celtics have a multitude of options they can explore before they are on the clock in late June.

Rubbing the salt in even deeper, the Celtics are among the best young teams in the National Basketball Association already, and were primed to kick off the Eastern Conference Finals on their home floor against the defending National Basketball Association champion Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night. Well, to frame just how bad this deal was, let's take you back.

The first No. 1 pick of the lottery era was shrouded in conspiracy theories of a frozen or bent envelope and NY bias.
