Celtics Win 2017 Lottery, Lakers Pick 2nd, 76ers Get 3rd

The Boston Celtics have won the 2017 NBA Draft Lottery due to their 2013 trade owning the rights to the Brooklyn Nets’ pick.

With the Los Angeles Lakers staying in the top-3, they will keep their pick this season, lose their first round pick to Philadelphia in 2018, and no longer need to send a first round pick to the Orlando Magic.

The Philadelphia 76ers moved from No. 5 to No. 3 due to a pick swap with the Sacramento Kings made by Sam Hinkie during the 2015 offseason.

1. Boston Celtics (via Brooklyn Nets)
2. Los Angeles Lakers
3. Philadelphia 76ers (via Sacramento Kings pick swap)
4. Phoenix Suns
5. Sacramento Kings (via Philadelphia 76ers pick swap)
