NBA Draft Lottery Results: Celtics Have Pick No. 1

Here are the results of the 2017 NBA Draft Lottery.

The top of the 2017 NBA Draft is set.

The NBA Draft Lottery occurred moments ago and the Boston Celtics, the Eastern Conference's No. 1 seed, have the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

The Celtics are the Los Angeles Lakers, who have the No. 2 overall pick, and the Philadelphia 76ers, who have the No. 3 overall pick.

The Lakers' getting a top-three pick is huge, as they would have had to give their pick to the Sixers if it was outside the top three due to an earlier trade.

Here are the full results:

Washington guard Markelle Fultz is the likely pick at No. 1 for Boston, unless the Celtics decide to package that pick for a star like Jimmy Butler or Paul George.

Perhaps more exciting is that there's now a clear path for Lonzo Ball to stay in L.A. and play for the Lakers, who could easily take him at No. 2.

The 2017 NBA Draft is set for June 22.
