Top 50 NBA Draft Prospects — NBA DRAFT RANKINGS

The lottery takes place on Tuesday. But only after Tuesday night's NBA Draft Lottery will we know just how important it will be. Here's a amusing story: if the Lakers don't win any of the Top 3 picks in the lottery, they have to give their first round pick to the Sixers.

The Sacramento Kings are the picture of dysfunction, and this draft lottery exposes that once again.

Vogel has never attended the lottery.

The Boston Celtics have the best chance of securing the first overall pick because of a trade with the bottom-dwelling Brooklyn Nets, and the Phoenix Suns have the second-best chance.

Another potential story is vindication for "The Process" in Philadelphia.

Danny Ainge's Celtics are both one of the final five teams in contention for this year's title, and guaranteed to pick among the top four in the draft. The team that has been assigned that combination will receive the No.1 pick. But this is a draft loaded with talent, so Philly should come out well either way.

What are the chances the Heat move into a top-three pick in the lottery? In fact, it was the Wolves' only victory in the National Basketball Association lottery. Now, Philadelphia will be hoping to land a second straight No. 1 overall pick, after selecting Simmons past year.

The 2017 NBA Lottery is nearly here!

However, Smith will have to cope up without his wrecker-in-chief Imran Tahir, who has already left the team for worldwide duty. Parthiv Patel (38) and Lendl Simmons (59 off 32 balls) smoted the KXIP bowling en route their 99-run stand in only 8.4 overs.

Melissa McCarthy adds spice (and Spicer) as host of 'SNL'
You guessed it. "He wouldn't do that". "Nothing's going to stop me because I have the Republicans in the palm of my hand". As host, she didn't bother with a monologue , but instead lead an audience member - and mother - on a tour backstage.

Trump Says New FBI Director Could Be Named Next Week
On Thursday Trump said he would have fired Comey regardless of any such recommendations. "It was not - I was going to fire Comey". Trump that he would always be honest with him, but that he was not "reliable" in the conventional political sense".

The Lakers are now on a streak of no. 2 picks, as the team drafted D'Angelo Russell with the no. 2 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft and selected Brandon Ingram with the no. 2 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

They got a huge victory Tuesday night, and maybe the wins on the court will soon follow.

"The pain that we've all gone through, the pain of losing is real". "I don't think our expectations are that somebody's going to be there (at No. 6 or so) that's going to start and help make a big difference for us".

Because of another previous trade, they also will get the Los Angeles Lakers' first-round pick if it isn't in the top three at the lottery. Embiid went No. 3 in 2014, Jahlil Okafor was the No. 3 pick in 2015 and Ben Simmons became the No. 1 overall choice previous year. However, for maximum drama the telecast begins at pick 14 and counts down until the top pick. The process is repeated for picks two and three, and every other team is then slotted after in reverse order of record. If LA falls out of the top four, then their pick goes to Philadelphia based on numerous trades that originated back when the Lakers acquired Steve Nash. "It's not contingent on getting the pick or not getting the pick". That would have been disappointing. That was Flip Saunders' thing, Taylor said.

Harris, the 19th selection overall in the 2014 draft, was selected to represent the Nuggets in this year's draft lottery selection. "We want to look at all these options before we get into it". "We don't have to wait and see what someone else does".

Who gets to attend the actual lottery? He sent a subsequent tweet saying he was just excited but was keeping his fingers crossed.

Charlotte had the 11th worst record in the league this past season.

DraftExpress.com ranks former Kentucky point guard De'Aaron Fox as the fifth pick in the draft, two spots ahead of ex-teammate Malik Monk.
