The 2018 NBA draft is just a few days away, but that means there are still some players to be considered in the draft.
New Scientist takes a look at who might be selected in the first round of the draft, and what you need to know.
Will the Celtics have a high pick?
The Celtics have made a habit of getting big names on draft night.
Boston got its first pick in 2017, and there’s little reason to believe the Celtics won’t get a big name at No. 12.
They got a top-five pick last year, and it’s possible that they’ll get another top-10 pick next year.
The Celtics could also look to trade up to get a top prospect in the 2019 NBA draft, which is when the NBA will make the decision on its draft order.
It’s not unheard of for the Celtics to trade for the No. 1 pick, and the Celtics could easily end up at No: 11.
But it’s not an automatic first-round pick.
That’s why the Celtics should look to move up to make a trade, rather than trade up. 2.
Which NBA player might the Celtics select?
The NBA has a rule that players can’t be traded at the top of the first pick.
This rule was created to help protect players from trading up and being taken with the first overall pick.
The rule applies to the top four players in each draft, so players who were drafted by the same team at the same time are eligible to be traded.
But there are some exceptions to this rule.
In the 2017 NBA draft for example, the Cleveland Cavaliers selected Kyrie Irving with the No, 1 pick and then traded down to take the No 1 overall pick, which would allow the Cavaliers to select the top pick.
If they drafted No. 10 overall, that would give them a chance to trade down, but they wouldn’t get the top selection.
Instead, they would get the No 2 pick and get the first selection in the second round.
How do you evaluate the best players in this year’s draft?
Most of the time, the best player in this draft isn’t the player that ends up being picked by the Celtics.
That player might end up being taken in the lottery.
Most teams draft with a high draft pick in mind.
The Lakers were one of the teams that traded their No. 6 pick to the Celtics in the 2017 draft for No. 18 overall.
In that deal, the Lakers received a No. 2 overall pick and No. 7 overall pick from the Celtics, so the Lakers would have the chance to take a top player.
But they also took a player in the 2018 draft, including No. 11 overall, which was one of only two picks that the Celtics got in 2018.
So it’s fair to say the Lakers could have chosen a No 5 pick.
But because the Celtics traded up to grab the No 6 pick, the Celtics would have taken the No 5 overall pick as well.
In addition, the Cavaliers got their No 5 picks back in 2018, so if they had selected No. 5 overall, they could have taken a top pick in 2019.
The Cavaliers didn’t select a top talent, and so it would make sense for the Lakers to select a No 6 overall pick in the 2020 draft.
The Cavs, meanwhile, were able to take No. 9 overall in the 2021 draft, giving them a top overall pick for the 2021-2022 season.
It seems unlikely that the Cavaliers would have chosen the No 9 overall pick if they were able, however.
The 2021 NBA draft was the first in which the top overall picks were selected by the two teams involved in the trade.
In 2018, the Cavs took the No 8 pick from Brooklyn and the No 11 pick from Boston.
In 2019, the Raptors took the second overall pick while the Nets got the No 10 pick from Philadelphia.
The 2020 NBA draft saw the No 3 pick taken by the Bucks and No 6 picks from the Heat and Warriors.
Who are the top players in the class?
If the Celtics take a No 1 pick next week, the first thing they should do is look at the best available players.
The top players at each position are the players that are most likely going to be selected, and that includes the best prospects at each level of the sport.
The No. 20 overall pick comes from the 2016 NBA draft and the first No. 17 overall pick came from the 2018 NBA Draft.
The players selected in this round are players who are considered the best in the sport at the moment.
The best player at each spot will be selected by a lottery committee, which determines which players will go No. 30 in the NBA draft.
That means players like Emmanuel Mudiay, Emmanuel Mudu, Khem Birch, Shabazz Muhammad, Zach Collins, and De’Aaron Fox could all be selected at No 30.
The picks of those players can also be used in a trade if
