While the Pelicans will have a very easy decision to make if they wind up with the first overall pick (hello, Zion Williamson), and the second- and third-best prospects may be pretty clear in Ja Morant and R.J. Barrett, the outcome of the remaining top 10 picks are more of a gray area. 2, 3 and 4 picks respectively, according to the website tankathon.com. There will be a lot of overreactions if the Grizzlies pick conveys (and probably an equal number if it doesn't), but in reality, the chances of everything falling into place on that selection for the Celtics were always slim. In 2015, Boston sent Jeff Green to Memphis in a multi-team deal, and the biggest prize it received in return was a future first-round choice. The fewer games a team won last season, the greater its odds are at landing the top pick in the NBA Draft. That was because the first three picks were the only ones determined by the lottery.
