Which gets us back to the decision Ainge will have to make before the draft on June 22: Make the pick, or trade the pick? "That guy better be pretty good because if you're drafting No. 1 and you make the pick well - you do really draft a transcendent player - you've got that player for five or six years as they build up before the max money even kicks in". A trade like that has been suggested by many, and it was something that both the Bulls and Celtics had talked about during the draft a year ago and at this past trade deadline.
It wouldn't be that surprising if the Hornets chose to move their pick considering that they traded the 22nd overall selection in the first round (Malachi Richardson) to the Sacramento Kings past year. "I think the chemistry would be unbelievable".
The Celtics were awarded the top overall pick in the Draft Lottery for the first time in franchise history.
The Pistons used the eighth overall pick in 2015 to basically take a player that would mostly serve as a reserve. Holding the rights to Brooklyn's first-round draft pick from the 2013 trade that sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Nets, they won the lottery and will take the top pick for the first time since 1950.
"I don't think I would max him out because you can wait for restricted free agency", said an National Basketball Association source.

MSNBC reported that Lieberman was cagey about whether he'd take the job if Trump offered it to him, saying, "I'd rather not say". The 75-year-old Lieberman served in the Senate for 24 years before retiring in 2013.
"If you can acquire a Paul George, Jimmy Butler, or Gordon (Hayward) from Utah, you have to do it", he continued. "There's a lot of flexibility there between the draft picks and free agency". But going back to the financial issue, whether he'd enjoy being in that lineup or not is largely irrelevant as there's nearly no way Boston could afford to make it happen.
"I know I must be a genius to plan it this well", LaVar Ball said. Not only did the Lakers keep the pick, but they actually moved up a spot, to No. 2. To be honest, while I'd like to optimistically buy in to my own silver lining that I've proposed here, I actually wouldn't be all that surprised if the Celtics forego moving the pick. "With a team like that, the defending champions, you can't let them hit first".
The Celtics did not make a move, and ultimately took Brown, Guerschon Yabusele out of France, and Ante Zizic out of Croatia with their three first-round picks.
The Clippers never got much out their No. 8 pick and traded the small forward to the New Orleans Hornets in 2011.
