I'm hoping for Phoenix pick 1, Celtics pick 2, Philly pick 3.  Or any combination of the above to see the Lakers lose their first round pick

That was about the least interesting way the order could have fallen.

Celtics will take Fultz, Lakers get Ball (and his dad, might have been better for him to have to leave LA), Philly should take the next best guard, Suns should get a crack at the best big in the draft.

Riddos, How good has the celtics luck been, ECF and #1 pick in the draft!

You think they will take Fultz, keep and nurture him along with Jaylen Brown, than use Rozier, Crowder as trade builders with next years number 1 draft picks to try and grab a start 3 or 4 like Butler?

Gordon Hayward is a free agent that they could easily purchase with their salary cap space as well!

Celtics in an envious position it seems.

I can't really believe how easily the Warriors are handling the Spurs.

I know kawhi got hurt, but it hasn't even been close so far.

It's official, Cavs vs GSW rematch for the Championship.

With the addition of Durant bringing some extra firepower on offence and defence I think the Warriors will take it, hope it's a good series through.

Warriors incredibly strong at both ends of the floor..... could be a sweep!

Cavs starting Centre produced 0 points and 3 rebounds in Game 3, you can see why they signed Bogut. Unlucky he got injured, would have been good for 10 and 5 plus some assists and general solid play in the paint.

Cavs blew that one!  GSW went on a 11-0 run in the last 3 mins of the game.  Can't do that and expect to win

That loss will hurt most of all for the Cavs...... Tomorrow could be the end of the NBA season, GSW would love to win it on Cav's court to make up for last season.

Tristan Thomson, definitely suffering the Kardashian curse!  Gone missing!!!

76ers in a potential trade with Celtics to move up to number one pick and take Fultz. Hope the 76ers can get all their young talent fit and on the court together at some point in the next few years. Seems Celtics had been looking at Josh Jackson as their pick anyway so can still get him at 3, and would be committing to Thomas as their long term point guard.

Almost draft day, loving this time of year with the trades, free agent signings etc.  Hearing that D'Andre Jordan is possibly heading to Phoenix in a trade to send Bledsloe back to the Clippers.  Howard being traded by the Hawks was an interesting one, must be the first time it hasn't been him choosing which team he was taking "Superman" to

Don't think it'll end up being a historically great draft class but the trades are very interesting.
Porzingis to the Suns is another one I've been reading about, Phil Jackson about to undo the one good thing he's done while at the Knicks?!

I had not heard of the Porzingis rumour, I'd be happy to take him for draft pick 4, it could save the Suns from drafting another frigging point guard at least

Looks like the Spurs are also offering Marcus LaAldrige for a top 5 pick as well

Jonah Bolden drafted at Pick 36 by the 76ers to team up with fellow Aussie Ben Simmons.

Overall the T-Wolves the big improvers on the night getting Jimmy Butler without having to give up too much.

Yeah Bulls let Jimmy Butler go for not a great deal in return. 

Surely they would have gotten better offers from otehr clubs?!?!

Phil & the Knicks = splitsville.

It's on Twitter, it must be true.

Big day in the NBA and free agency is still two days away!

Good riddance Phil, earned USD$60million for three years work and the remarkable achievement of making the Knicks even more dysfunctional then before he arrived. Hopefully the Knicks are on the phone to David Griffin who recently left the Cavs.

CP3 departs the Clippers to team up with Harden at the Rockets. Do Clippers commit to injury prone free agent Blake Griffin long term? Can Rockets land a PG13 type as well to compete with GSW?

The Banana Boat crew of Lebron, CP3, Melo and Wade are currently all free-agents after next season, will they orchestrate a move to team up somewhere? They aren't getting any younger.

Free agency madness kicks off tomorrow.  Hearing Griffin is meeting tomorrow with the Suns who he has been complimenting in a few interviews.  I'd be happy to see him as a mentor to the likes of Marquess and Jackson, but not on a long term contract if paying maximum bucks

Can they fit all those Egos in at GSW?

The most Knicks move ever, paying a fortune to bring back a player they'd drafted then traded away. Welcome back Tim Hardaway Jr, assuming the Hawks don't match the Knicks offer, which is unlikely.
