NBA Draft Tonight! Who will go #1?
NEW YORK — Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball are expected to be the top two picks in tonight's NBA draft. Then the intrigue starts.
The Boston Celtics have the No. 3 pick after trading with Philadelphia and will have plenty of options in what's considered a strong draft. That's one of the things to watch from Barclays Center, where the record for freshmen taken in the first round could fall.
Forwards Josh Jackson of Kansas and Jayson Tatum of Duke are two players frequently mentioned as possibilities at the No. 3 spot, and Celtics president Danny Ainge said Boston could get the player there they might have taken at No. 1.
