Celtics have 70.55% chance to get Lakers 2018 pick, per calculation

Wade is a loser because he's now stuck on the Jimmy Butler-less Chicago Bulls, but we might reconsider it a week or two.

Ironically, Fultz heading to the 76ers was completely expected, as was No. 2 pick Lonzo Ball who was taken by the L.A. Lakers. When you study what Markelle did in college, you recognize very quickly that he has the ability to play that position if he wanted to be a ball distributor as well.

A Wolves fan sitting one row in front of me was decked out in Wolves gear from head to toe - his wolf winter hat with "long paws" (it looked something like this) said enough about his flamboyant character, though it was his reaction to the trade that stood out the most. "I've got a lot of respect for a lot of people - MJ (Michael Jordan and) everybody - but that's something I'm going to work for every day".

Although he missed a good chunk of last season with a torn meniscus, Embiid averaged 20.2 points a game, along with 7.8 rebounds and 2.45 blocks in 31 games.

During the second round of the draft on Thursday, some fans at the Barclays Center made a decision to have a little fun by spoiling the news of a few picks.

It's the second straight year the 76ers have owned the first overall selection. The jury is still out on the third, Ben Simmons, who was the top selection previous year. They traded down and gave up the chance to draft Markelle Fultz, who was the best player in the draft by far.

A record 16 freshmen were taken in Round 1, including a new high for first-year players selected in the lottery.

The players don't get much of a say in which team they play for, but that didn't stop Lavar Ball from saying his son would play for no one but the Lakers.

It was not a good night in the Windy City.

"It's insane, I couldn't ask for anything more, to be able to learn from (Johnson) every day is truly a blessing", Ball said. The Cavs sent Wiggins and Bennett in a three-team deal with Minnesota and the Sixers to get Kevin Love.

The Celtics used the third pick on Duke's Jayson Tatum.

Don't overlook the Lakers' first-round additions of Kyle Kuzma (27th pick) and Josh Hart (30th), either, or their signing of undrafted P.J. Dozier, who's a really interesting defensive prospect. Before Sacramento used its second top-10 selection, Dallas made North Carolina State point guard Dennis Smith the ninth pick. Jackson furnished 16.3 points and 7.4 boards a game for the Jayhawks as a freshman last season.
