When Is the NBA Draft? 2018 Date, Schedule, Draft Order

When Is the NBA Draft? 2018 Date, Schedule, Draft Order

Eight teams finished with a worse record than the Knicks' 29-53 mark, giving them just a 1.7 percent chance at the top draft slot.

Such a likelihood is slim enough to qualify as extremely unlikely, but the fact that the Celtics has a shot at landing a top pick in the first place should be reason for celebration in Boston.

Let's start with the basics.

Those aren't the only prospects who will be on the tip of general managers' tongues during the 2018 draft, however.

Except for Tuesday night, that is. Atlanta could go with Real Madrid guard Luka Doncic, Michigan State PF/C Jaren Jackson Jr., Texas center Mohamed Bamba. When it comes to the Pistons pick, there is a 0.7 percent chance that the pick is number one and a 2.5 percent chance of landing in the top three.

Either scenario could have a significant impact on LeBron James' future with the franchise that drafted him. They also seem like a team that could make a trade come draft night given the need to reset parts of their roster. This process continues until the top three picks are determined.

Gas prices continue to be on the rise
Trains, buses, rails and cruise ships are expected to net a total of 1.8 million passengers, including 35,000 Georgians. Gas prices have gone up 17 cents since last month, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 5,345 gas outlets in Ohio.

Tuesday, we'll see what team tanked its way to its choice of any player in this year's incredibly deep draft. The Celtics used one of those picks - the Brooklyn Nets' first-rounder - to help get star point guard Kyrie Irving from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Los Angeles Clippers consultant Jerry West talks with executive vice president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank at the game against the San Antonio Spurs at Staples Center on April 3, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. Chicago won in 2008 with a 1.7 percent chance (the Bulls took Derrick Rose).

If the Lakers end up with the No. 1 overall pick - there's a 1.1 percent chance that happens - the Sixers get the pick. If Detroit keeps its pick this year, it remains top-four protected until 2021, when it switches to unprotected.

Should the Kings stay put at No. 7, it would mark the 7th time in the lottery era where they have ended up with that selection. It's confusing, but the point is: the Celtics are stacked and only getting more talented. Chance for top-three pick: 29.1 percent.

NY could potentially end up selecting a prospect at No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, No. 9, No. 10, No. 11, or No. 12 overall. In a stacked lottery class, that means Philly is poised to add yet another high-potential prospect to its core of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.

DeRozan is their most valuable trade asset if they want to go that way, an All-Star wing who can fill up the scoreboard - 23 points and 5.2 assists per game last season. "Since it was a one-time experience you kind of really don't know what to do".
