Boston Celtics Top 15 Draft Picks of All Time

The NBA takes 14 ping-pong balls, numbered from one to 14 and draws four of them.

Pat Williams, a co-founder of the Magic, intends to carry the toy into Chicago's Palmer House Hilton for Tuesday night's 2018 NBA Draft Lottery.

The team with the initial four-number combination wins the lottery.

With such high stakes, the lottery often inspires superstition with teams looking to trinkets and charms to improve their chances of a lucky ball bounce.

Three times in lottery has team with the sixth-worst record ended up with the No. 1 pick.

The Sixers are expected to have two first-round picks - Nos.

Antonio Conte Doesn't Think Newcastle Defeat Was His Last Chelsea League Match
But the Italian has warned his players that they can not afford to deliver a repeat performance of their defeat to Newcastle .

This process is repeated to determine the second and third picks.

A change to the NBA's Draft Lottery rules could help the Celtics in that regard, as the league will adopt a new lottery format in 2019 that gives no team more than a 14 percent chance to land the No. 1 overall pick.

The upcoming draft lottery is a great time to look back at that history, and see the kind of talent the Celtics have gotten out of the draft in the past. All are required to submit their electronic devices (cell phones) so they can not communicate with anyone until after the order is revealed.

The Magic is listed with an 8.8 percent chance of landing the No. 1 pick and a 29.1 percent chance of getting a top three pick. But for the Magic, a team that desperately needs a talent infusion, nabbing a top-three pick this year would be crucial. The Lakers' pick goes to Philadelphia or Boston, depending on where it falls.

These stipulations are all based on language from previous trades initiated by those teams. Last year, it was Joel Embiid, in 2016 it was Brett Brown and 2015 was Nerlens Noel. The event will begin at 4:30 P.M.
