Lottery links

The NBA Draft lottery is still a little more than three weeks away, but Celtics fans are undoubtedly already sweating out what could be the biggest offseason in the franchise’s recent history.

The Globe recently ran a graphic that breaks down Boston’s lottery chances in condensed form.

The Celtics are guaranteed a top-five pick. They have a 38.7 percent chance of getting one of the first two picks. They have a higher chance (31. 9 percent) of landing the fourth pick than any other individual pick in the top-five.

  • For those of you who enjoy torture, try ESPN’s mock draft lottery feature. It’s a humbling way to see exactly how many times the Celtics can be robbed of one of the first two picks.
