Top 50 NBA Draft Prospects — NBA DRAFT RANKINGS

The NBA now gives big incentives for superstars to stay with the team that drafted them, so finding the next great Laker in the draft is just about a must, and those players are typically found near the top of the draft. This week is shaping up to be one of the most exciting or disappointing in recent Celtic history, and what happens Tuesday night could go a long way in determining that.

If the Lakers' pick drops out of the top three, they must surrender it to the Philadelphia 76ers and an unprotected 2019 first-rounder to the Orlando Magic.

They would have garnered another top-five selection had the Lakers tumbled a couple of spots, since they would have been entitled to the pick the Lakers originally dealt to Phoenix for Steve Nash that the 76ers later acquired in another trade.

They entered the offseason on a high note ready to begin a new era with new leadership, and to lose a top pick because of the sins of the previous regime would be devastating. They did get to move up two spots past year after swapping picks with the Knicks (a final byproduct of the Carmelo Anthony trade), but the proverbial ping pong balls have never bounced their way. Both are starters on a LeBron James-led squad that could repeat as National Basketball Association champion.

"But I'd have to understand what the plan would be for my client before I let them come", the agent, one of "several" to tell Ford that they may consider holding top prospects out of workouts with the C's, said.


Instead of a 6.5 percent chance of winning, they were forced to split the pingpong balls with Minnesota. At the moment, Fultz seems to be the consensus top prospect. That's the point in the draft where many role players are drafted, and hidden gems can be found. Two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry went seventh to the Warriors. The point guard is quick and can score, something the Bulls need. As the best team - record-wise - in the lottery, Miami will be assigned the fewest of the 1,001 combinations of any of the 14 non-playoff teams. Less than one percent - 0.8 percent, to be exact.

The most likely results would be just No. 5 (17.7 percent), Nos. LA holds a 22.6 percent chance of finishing with the no. 4 spot and and 26.5 percent chance of finishing with the no. 5 pick. For No. 6, 43.9 percent.

What are the chances the Heat move into a top-three pick in the lottery? They will be represented at the podium in NY by general manager Rich Cho, who needs a solid offseason this year to improve his job security. Marc Bertrand said he would rather the Celtics win the No. 1 pick at the draft lottery than beat the Wizards in Game 7. Simmons missed his rookie season because of a fractured right foot.

Currently, the Sixers have the fourth best chance of winning the first overall pick, with a 14.7 percent chance at winning the first overall selection, sitting less than one percentage point behind the Los Angeles Lakers.
