Let's use this thread for a running draft game thread. Separate the Celtics picks/trades out into their own threads. I don't care about spoilers(dopes you can make that call) as I will be following The Vertical stream through the first round.

I keep seeing "coverage starts at 7" but does anyone know when the Sixers will officially be on the clock?

That is confusing. Belinelli has that kind of trade value? This draft may be even worse than reported...

Guessing at the Celtic war room now:

No Bender, but Dunn, Brown, Murray, Hield and Chriss are still plausible in descending order. Dunn has gotten all the buzz because so many bad teams need a point guard.

#3 on the auction block, bidders on multiple phones, league officials on speed dial. All other draft choices available too. How many of the Celtics' announced picks will still be wearing Celtic caps after tonight?

He's saying don't spoil the Celts pick, and after that go nuts.
I don't care about watching some ESPN tape delayed shit show -- if you want to see the name announced, don't read the thread. I want the news as soon as anybody anywhere knows!

Ibaka would be a nice addition to the Celtics.

WOJO:

PHX wants Dunn, will be Chriss or Bender if Dunn gone. Will auction the pick if Dunn there.

BOS focused on Dunn at 3.

No mention of Brown among the Celtics' considerees -- it'll be Dunn or Murray. The Kris Dunn auction is under way.

Thank you. It's 2016. Why are we pretending ESPN is "reality", while Twitter/Yahoo are spoilers.

It only takes one team......and the only guards currently on the Hornets roster are Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb. Sacramento maximized Belinelli's value due to Charlotte's huge need for backcourt help.

There seems to be too much demand for Dunn to have Ainge draft anyone else. At this point I'd be shocked to hear anyone elses name.

Told Celtics and Philly engaging in last-minute talks for No. 3. We'll see who -- if anyone -- blinks first. ... Sixers really want Dunn.
As HRB stated, Dunn's the pick. But he'll be dealt. It's just a matter of how long it takes to get consummated. On sort of a side note, I'm a huge Friars' fan, so of course I love Kris, but I have concerns over his durability. Can he handle the physical toll of a full NBA season? He's missed many games over his college career, even this past season. If so, he's going to have to get a lot bigger/stronger. Love Ainge's attempt to get the best deal he can for him.
