The 2016 NBA Draft lottery was held on Tuesday night and the Sixers finally landed the elusive No. 1 overall pick after missing out the past two seasons. Now that the exact draft order is locked in, teams can begin targeting specific players who are likely to still be on the board when it is their time to choose. Drafting players is far from an exact science, and many a GM has been second-guessed for his draft night decisions. I’m willing to bet that every team executive has at least one pick that he would like a mulligan for. We at Hoops Rumors thought it would be fun to give our readers the chance to predict the results of this June’s draft, which is what we intend to do with a series of polls.
Now that the first two picks are out of the way, things will start to really get interesting. We’ll continue with the Celtics, who are still seeking to land a star player to build around. While Boston is a prime candidate to make a trade involving the No. 3 pick, for our purposes today we’ll assume they keep it. Readers, you are now on the clock! Cast your vote for Boston’s pick and check back Saturday for the results, as well as to cast your vote for who the Suns will select with the No. 4 overall pick. But don’t limit yourself to a simple button click. Take to the comments section below and share your thoughts on the No. 3 overall pick and why you voted the way that you did.
- Sixers — Ben Simmons (LSU)
- Lakers — Brandon Ingram (Duke)
