Suns fall 2 spots, will pick 4th in NBA Draft

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

There's no telling how good the Lakers could be next season, especially if they make a move for Paul George.

"This is pretty good", said Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck.

That right to swap picks is just the latest reward for the Celtics. Wojnarowski said. "Boston could possibly know closer to the draft where they stand with Hayward, but I think Danny Ainge has not gone "all in" with this group yet. We could get a little help for tomorrow night".

On top of not being able to compete for titles now, Boston would throw away their chance to build for the future, when Golden State and Cleveland no longer have a strangle hold on the National Basketball Association.

After all, it was Hinkie who orchestrated a trade with the Sacramento Kings - a heist, rather - obtaining Nik Stauskas, a protected first-rounder, and swap rights to the Kings' first-round pick this year just to absorb the salaries on Carl Landry and Jason Thompson. Of course, the Lakers already had a guaranteed first-round pick, 28th overall, from the Houston Rockets thanks to the Lou Williams trade. "This is what Brooklyn wanted to do, wanted to go all on it, chase a championship".

King will probably be mocked once again a year from now, when the Celtics - again - get Brooklyn's first-round pick.

However, Draft Express' Jonathan Givony says that while Ball is the "heavy favorite" to be picked No. 2, LA is also debating another point guard: Kentucky's De'Aaron Fox.

First things first, the Los Angeles Lakers will have the second pick in the draft for the third straight year. The Nets finished with the league's worst record at 20-62 under first-year general manager Sean Marks, who replaced Billy King in February 2016. Since I always like to point out the obvious rigging of the Draft Lottery, look at the cities of the teams picking in the top three: Boston, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia.

- John Alicoate (@Jonnyc40) May 17, 2017@fenix3030 @abc15sports It makes me sick how rigged it is.

It is the first time Boston will select first since the lottery began in 1985. The Orlando Magic and Minnesota Timberwolves are sixth and seventh while the New York Knicks are eighth.

Before the lottery, I had the Suns picking Jackson with the second overall pick as he would have provided an athletic body to act as a support scorer alongside Devin Booker and Eric Bledsoe. Who won big and who left disappointed? But they are still very much underdogs to the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers.
