With the No. 15 overall pick, the Trail Blazers selected Justin Jackson (F, North Carolina), but this pick is headed to Sacramento as part of the swap for the No. 10 pick, along with the 20th overall pick.

Sacramento takes Justin Jackson with the 15th pick in the trade with Portland. Kings now add two high-character players who should be able to help right away in De'Aaron Fox and Jackson. Trying to change the culture in Sacramento.

Lakers coach Luke Walton admits LaVar Ball's comments could make things tougher on Lonzo Ball in the NBA, but he isn't overly concerned with LaVar's proclamations.

This Phil Jackson comment on Ntilikina (if you think of it with the Porzingis/Melo drama in mind) was interesting: "He leads his teammates well. He follows directions. Very good at that." Jackson was discussing Ntilikina's strengths, in context of how he filled his role in France. Still, interesting.

With the No. 14 overall pick, the Heat selected Bam Adebayo (F, Kentucky). He's the 5th player the Heat have picked in the lottery since 2000. Two went on to be multiple-time All-Stars (Caron Butler, Dwyane Wade).

Based on my trade chart, a fair Jazz-Nuggets trade would value Trey Lyles alone like the 26th pick in the draft, which seems reasonable.

Lakers coach Luke Walton says there was internal debate over who the Lakers should pick at No. 2 overall, but after weighing all of factors, they decided Lonzo Ball suited their desired style of play the best.

Like this trade for the Jazz. Pick up athletic wing Donovan Mitchell, who also showed an improved perimeter shot and the ability to make plays for himself and others. Utah obviously needs to keep Gordon Hayward.

Luke Kennard to the Pistons. He's the first non-freshman to be drafted this year. His 19 20-point games were tied for most in the ACC last year. The last time the Pistons drafted a Duke player in the first round was Grant Hill in 1994.

With the No. 13 overall pick, the Nuggets selected Donovan Mitchell (G, Louisville), but this pick is headed to Utah in exchange for Trey Lyles and the No. 24 overall pick. The last time the Jazz picked 13th overall, they landed Karl Malone in 1985.

Source: Jazz get 13th pick from Denver for Trey Lyles and 24. They'll select Donovan Mitchell.

Horace Grant, who played for the Lakers in 2001 and 2004, says he'd give the 2000-01 Lakers, who went 15-1 in the postseason, the edge over the 2016-17 Warriors, who just went 16-1 in the postseason, in a hypothetical matchup. Grant then showed off his four championships rings with the Bulls and Lakers.

Phil Jackson just spoke to reporters at the Knicks facility in Tarrytown, NY for nine minutes, 30 seconds. He wanted to keep the focus on Frank Ntilikina, declining answering questions about Kristaps Porzingis and Carmelo Anthony. On Derrick Rose's status Jackson simply said: "We're listening."

Phil Jackson on how the Knicks are approaching Derrick Rose's free agency: "We're listening."

With the No. 11 overall pick, the Hornets selected Malik Monk (G, Kentucky). Every first-round pick Charlotte has made since Michael Jordan became majority owner in 2010 has been a player from a major conference.

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Rick Carlisle leaves no doubt Mavs wanted Dennis Smith over Frank Ntilikina, saying there was "uproarious" applause when Knicks made pick.

Celtics draftee Jayson Tatum on going to a team that had the best record in the East last season: "It's great. I think that I get to learn that much more, especially from a veteran team that knows what it takes to get there. I can't wait to go and learn from Coach [Brad] Stevens and Isaiah Thomas and just everybody on that roster."

Darren Rovell ESPN Senior Writer 

Josh Jackson has the largest hat of any draftee tonight (8 1/4). Perfect for an Oscar Gamble tribute. Jackson: "I'm not even close!"

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Before question was even asked, Rick Carlisle said Mavs are projecting Dennis Smith Jr. to start as a rookie. Cites intelligence, maturity as well as athleticism. "We believe he's going to be a tremendous player for us and right away."
