NBA Draft 2017: Post-Lottery Mock Draft 1.0

The NBA Draft Lottery concluded on May 16, where the Celtics received the 1st pick via the Brooklyn Nets. The LA Lakers jumped to the 2nd spot while the Sixers via the Kings took the 3rd spot. It was an interesting lottery, as Sacramento lucked out and got into the top 3. However, due to previous trades, Philadelphia had the right to swap with the Kings thus landing them the 3rd overall pick.
