Charlotte Hornets To Pick 11th In 2018 NBA Draft

Charlotte Hornets To Pick 11th In 2018 NBA Draft

On Tuesday's NBA Draft Lottery, however, the Mavs probably got one of the worst possible results.

"No big deal. It's a deep draft", Kings vice president and general manager Vlade Divac said.

In exchange for multi-time NBA All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, the Celtics sent forward Jae Crowder, point guard Isaiah Thomas and a pair of draft picks to the Cavaliers.

The Phoenix Suns, who had the NBA's worst record, won this lottery.

The Celtics had a chance to land in the top three for the third straight year. "We were hopeful that would happen".

"It's an easy assumption to make but we're going to draft whoever we think the best player is", McDonough said. We just hired a new coach as well. We're very excited about him and we'll be very excited about the player that we pick this year.

Now begins the process the finding the player the Knicks hope can be a difference maker and who fits in with what new coach David Fizdale wants.

In 1985, the Knicks won the National Basketball Association draft lottery, moving up two spots. With an 8:30 p.m. ET tipoff for Game 2 of the Eastern Finals, it was clear that ESPN was going to keep viewers waiting as long as it could for the actual lottery to start. Some possibilities: small forwards Mikal Bridges (Villanova), Miles Bridges (Michigan State) and Kevin Knox (Kentucky); point guards Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Kentucky) or Collin Sexton (Alabama).

"We didn't move back - that's a good thing - we're where we thought we would be", Kupchak said.

The two glaring needs that the Grizzlies need to address are finding a player that can score from the wing and a big man that can protect the paint.

So even though it was a disappointing night for Bulls fans, it's still important to remember that the young core of Lauri Markkanen, Zach LaVine, and Kris Dunn looked strong at times last season and adding one more piece might make a huge difference.

The lottery has been around since 1985, was tweaked to a weighted system in 1990 and will be changing again next year in an effort to discourage teams from tanking.
