Celtics Trade Aron Baynes To Phoenix As Part Of Draft Night Deal

Specifically, the Celtics hold three first-round selections, and considering their current depth at a few positions, trading up would make sense, assuming the price is right. But toward the end of the first round, that started to pick up.

The Warriors will now have three draft picks on Thursday as they begin to move into the future a little bit.

Consensus third-team All-American Dedric Lawson of Kansas, did however, connect with an National Basketball Association team less than 10 minutes after the marathon 5 1/2 hour showcase event concluded. He's a steady decision-maker who excels creating good looks for himself and others in pressure situations, and could be a plug-and-play backcourt piece early in his career.

The 21-year-old forward averaged 19.4 points per game and 10.3 rebounds per game in 36 games during his lone year at Kansas. New Orleans reportedly dealt the pick to the Hawks in exchange for the No. 8, No. 17 and No. 35 picks on Thursday night. "I think that I just try to stay level headed and keep working".

Edwards averaged 24.3 points per game last season while leading the Boilermakers to the NCAA Elite Eight. The Celtics also could potentially lose two All-Stars this summer with Kyrie Irving and Al Horford having elected to out of their player options for next season. He also shot 37 percent from 3-point range and made the All-Star Game from the Eastern Conference.

If the Hawks can't work out a deal, Duke forward Cam Reddish and Texas center Jaxson Hayes are among the players who might be available at Nos.

"I'd say my style of play is just very smooth", Langford said after being picked. "I'm happy they traded up and got that pick". During his senior season, he became the only player in Division I history to amass 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds, 500 assists and 200 steals.
