Celtics select Jayson Tatum with No. 3 pick in draft

In recent years, the ESPN and NFL Network have agreed to refrain from tweeting picks ahead of time, thus helping viewership for both of their broadcasts. 20 picks in the National Basketball Association draft to Sacramento in exchange for the No. 10 pick, Gonzaga center Zach Collins. The Sacramento Kings traded picks with the Portland Trailblazers and took UNC forward Justin Jackson No. 15 overall. Collins was selected by the Atlanta Hawks and Giles was selected by the Kings via the Portland trade. While his overall shooting percentage went up in his final season, his three-point range plummeted to 25.5. As a junior at Spring Westfield High School, Iwundu scored 10 points in a 62-26 playoff win over the Panthers. Ainge played with fury, a combative spirit, as does Jackson. Giles was once one of the top prospects in his class before being hobbled by knee injuries.

That character was put on display during the beginning of his freshman season at Duke. He averaged 16.5 points and 5.0 rebounds in 69 career games. The Celtics also drafted former New Hanover High School standout Kadeem Allen (Arizona) late in the second round.

"Even the Brooklyn deal (the Celtics made in 2013) was more reasonable than that", the source said, comparing Jackson's asking price for Porzingis to the infamous deal that netted the Celtics three Nets first-rounders and the right to swap picks this year, plus players, in exchange for Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry.

Ainge, on the other hand, walked away with the distinct impression that Jackson just didn't want to play for the Celtics.

Mitchell scored 15.4 points per game for the Cardinals past year while shooting 35 percent from three point land and averaging 4.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists. His Hall of Fame coach, Mike Krzyzewski, says Tatum's game "translates to the National Basketball Association maybe as well or better than anybody in the draft".

Another leadership test for Pelosi, who's weathered many
I wrote yesterday about how the special counsel's investigation of President Trump now dominates the media and political culture. But Pelosi continues to command great loyalty from many in the House, and she insisted her position was not in jeopardy.

"The feeling is everything I wished for and more", Tatum said. "And if he stays in I think he's gonna get drafted in the first round".

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens seems just as eager to deploy his new versatile weapon. The Mavericks missed the playoffs for just the second time in the past 17 seasons. We're really thrilled to have him. "That's a good thing". "As a rookie I can come in and be ready to work and learn from all the great guys in the locker room". Cook, a 6-foot-9, 253-pound power forward, averaged 13 points and 7 rebounds for Chaminade. Kennard averaged 19.5 points a game in 2016-17, then turned pro. "He's got terrific upside as a player, a great work ethic and his parents have done an incredible job raising this young man". But when they traded down, he said it was purely a logistical mishap. I don't see him being a LeBron-type player in that way but I didn't see Steph Curry being that, either.

Tatum appeared polished and humble while fielding an array of questions, often preceded by the rosy phrase "welcome to Boston". "And so everything that he said validated what I had already heard". The Celtics expect to see Markelle Fultz in that game.

Lonzo Ball of UCLA is expected to go No. 2 to the Lakers, although the sides have yet to reach agreement on a deal. Ball receives comparisons to Jason Kidd for his offensive abilities. "This is insane", Ball said in a phone interview. And I think that's really important. "I'm happy to be home".
