Clippers pick owed to Boston is literary protected. So they have to make the playoffs for the celts to get the pick.Can someone nutshell this for me? I don't know enough about the nba draft to understand what this says.
Could blowing a 28-point lead deliver a first-round pick to Boston?
Are you kidding me? When they traded down from the 1st pick to get Tatum was one of the biggest bait and switch trades I’ve ever seen. Would’ve been stuck with that bum fultz.And didn’t move up in any of those times. They all just held serve.
Those were shrewd trades.
The Celtics actually won with the Memphis pick. It could have been from 7-9 and they'd get it at 9 (protected 1-8). However, Memphis is pretty much a wreck now so there's a good chance it will have a higher pick in coming years. The pick is 1-6 protected next year and unprotected the year after. The risk is that when they do the lottery one of the teams from 9-14 will jump over Memphis and they'll will drop back to 9. There's a 39% likelihood that will happen and it's pretty much the worst case scenario.The Celtics lost all their tie breakers.
Amazing how they never seem to get luck in the draft
