NBA Draft Order 2017: Celtics Pick No. 1; Will It Be Markelle Fultz Or Lonzo Ball?

2,252

The Boston Celtics will headline the 2017 NBA Draft on June 22. But they have quite a few following acts, as well.

The Celtics own the No. 1 pick in this year’s draft after winning the NBA Draft Lottery for the first time in franchise history. Their night will be far from over after that selection, though, as president of basketball operations Danny Ainge and Co. also own three picks in the second round.

Will Boston take the expected route and draft Markelle Fultz at No. 1? Does that mean the Los Angeles Lakers will take Lonzo Ball at No. 2, or will they spurn the hometown kid to pick another talented player such as Josh Jackson, De’Aaron Fox or Jayson Tatum?
