Yet, obvious by Magic Johnson's smile, the hated rivals were both celebrating.

The Los Angeles Lakers are receiving offers for a potential D'Angelo Russell trade after they retained their Top-3 protected draft pick during Tuesday's NBA Draft Lottery, per reports.

On Tuesday, the Celtics reaped the ultimate reward of acquiring a first overall pick by winning the National Basketball Association draft lottery. The two also squared off in the regular season, with Ball (14 points, seven rebounds, six assists) and the Bruins getting the better of Fox (20 points, nine assists) and the Wildcats in Lexington. The Ball family isn't interested in auditioning for any other teams. I think we're good at what we do.

Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck told CSNNE that they are not taking their no. 1 pick lightly.

Rookie center Joel Embiid was the Philadelphia 76ers' representative as things got going last night in the 2017 NBA Draft Lottery.

There is still a lot of time to evaluate prospects and wonder about who goes where, but the end result of Tuesday night is that we may be in for a wild summer of hype and trades. Boston acquired the Nets' 2014, 2016 and 2018 first-round picks, as well as the rights to swap in 2017. The draft is chock of full point guards and the Knicks just happen to be in the market for one.

Municipal Court Judge Dwane Mallory dismissed misdemeanor counts of assault and disorderly conduct at the prosecutor's request after a plea agreement.

"I hate to see Boston wind up with that pick being in our division, but that's what we're dealing with", he said. Had that pick fallen to fourth or lower, it would have transferred to the Philadelphia 76ers as part of the trade that brought Steve Nash to the Lakers in 2012.

Meanwhile, the Lakers are in a prime spot for post-Kobe Bryant redemption as they could walk away with a top young talent or trade that pick along with Jordan Clarkson to the Indiana Pacers for Paul George. The Sixers, at first, drew the fifth overall pick in the lottery, but, because of the trade, managed to swap picks with the Kings to take the third overall pick instead.

When asked after Tuesday night's NBA Draft Lottery in NY if he's looking for a contract extension this summer, Embiid made a face indicating he didn't like the question and declined to comment. "So now the fans back home can breathe a little easier".

The Charlotte Hornets, Detroit Pistons, Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat will get the final four lottery picks.
