76ers keeping options open after NBA Draft Lottery

76ers keeping options open after NBA Draft Lottery

"The Seattle guys do a good job of coming back and spending time with the colleges and the communities, so it's been an honor to meet those guys and have a communication with them".

Finally, after years of NBA Draft lottery misfortune, the Boston Celtics got their payback in a big way on Tuesday night by getting the top pick in June's draft.

"I think any player that we pick for the Lakers has to fit our Lakers DNA, and that's players of high character, with diversified skillsets, versatility, team-first mentality and an obsession for the relentless pursuit of excellence", said Pelinka. "We can't allow a team of their caliber to build a lead like that in the first quarter". "We're just trying to get ourselves past this lottery and the draft and see where we stand".

Regan Smith: Regan Smith in #43 for Almirola at Charlotte
Almirola spent Saturday night in a Kansas City hospital after fracturing a vertebra during a fiery wreck at Kansas Speedway. Almirola is 23rd in the NASCAR Cup standings, 62 points outside the 16-driver cutoff to qualify for the playoffs.

It was the Cavaliers' 12th straight playoff win - one short of the National Basketball Association record.

And if the Celtics don't play any better than they did in the first half of the opener, that could be it. The Suns could make a move with Philadelphia that would guarantee them Jackson, forward/guard out of Kansas.

It was the second straight time the Cavaliers visited Boston and faced little resistance. Cleveland won the other games by a combined 35 points, including a 114-91 romp on April 5.

They showed me they want to be an option for the final". 'We only train with 23 players but now no one injured so instead of looking at United I look at my team'.

As a result, the Celtics, the first seed in the East now playing in the Conference Finals, will have their choice of any player in what's considered the best draft class in years. But Cleveland erased that edge quickly. "We're excited though. You know we're excited", Johnson said. "I'm going to keep talking about it until it happens". "I was able to do that early". "Game last night, Game 7, a tough Washington team".

Moments after the draft lottery handed the Philadelphia 76ers the No. 3 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, team owner Joshua Harris said he had one person to thank: Former 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie. He'd complement Ben Simmons well, but this trade seems highly unlikely, especially since Fultz is a highly touted prospect and the Celtics probably want him just as bad as anyone else does.

The Celtics missed 11 of their first 14 shots and trailed 22-9 with four minutes left in the first quarter. But I will not go to Boston and do all this ranting and raving. Collins didn't start a game past year for Gonzaga, but still averaged 10.0 points per game and won the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award, awarded to top center in men's college basketball.
