The 2017 NBA Draft kicked off Thursday night at the Barclays Center in NY with the Philadelphia 76ers taking Washington point guard Markelle Fultz at No. 1.

"I look at it as a great opportunity", Tatum said. He becomes the third Duke player in as many years to be taken in the top three - Brandon Ingram went No. 2 last year and Jahlil Okafor was selected No. 3 in 2015.

"I know, it's the best night ever", Tatum said. "I think that I get to learn that much more, especially from a veteran team that knows what it takes to get there". "But I think that he's a guy that we thought really highly of from Day 1. Pay for bills and utilities and take that burden off their shoulders".

Josh Jackson's personality and blue-collar style of play would make him a huge hit in NY, where he would make a nice side income with endorsement opportunities, but he would play for the winning side more often if he played for the Celtics. Ainge said that they never talked to Josh.

The trade was made because Boston would've selected Tatum with the first pick anyway. While Tatum's propensity to live in the mid-range area may have hurt his shooting percentage, he still shot 45.2 percent from the field and hit almost 85 percent of his charity-stripe attempts.

STRENGTHS: Markkanen has shown he is a strong shooter, making 49 percent overall, 42 percent from 3-point range and almost 84 percent at the line.

When the NBA holds its draft Thursday night at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, players from all three schools could go among the first 14 picks and the area's basketball reputation will continue to shine. Speaking of that, there appears to be at least a slight possibility that James will leave Cleveland after next season, and if that happens, wouldn't Boston want to be ready to step in right away with a championship team? "When I kind of got reintegrated into this process, right after the season was over, he was one of the guys that it was clear that we were targeting". He's a great, great scorer. He can shoot it.


CONCERNS: The glaring problem came at the line, where he made just 57 percent of his free throws - leaving a lot of points on the board considering he got to the line about five times a game.

"The Cavs were obviously the more dominant team, but they swept everybody but us and if Kyrie didn't go for 42 points in Game 4 they would have lost that one too".

Ainge insists Tatum would have been his pick regardless of Jackson's decision, and he may end up being a better fit in the Celtics lineup.

In the second round of Thursday's NBA Draft, the Boston Celtics selected forward Semi Ojeleye with the 37th pick, and the Philadelphia 76ers selected guard Sterling Brown with the 46th pick.

With his new head coach Brad Stevens and Boston Celtics ownership and front office officials surrounding him, Jayson Tatum's mind seemed to be somewhere else briefly.

"I talked about that with coach Stevens", Tatum said, "and he said, you know, guys at my size and my position that are able to hit open shots and defend 1 through 4, it's hard not to play those guys". "His skill set and work ethic will make him a star in the National Basketball Association". Neither is projected as a consensus first-round pick although some mock drafts have them going late in the first round.
