The NBA draft lottery was held on Tuesday night, with the Pelicans receiving the No. 1 pick despite having only a six percent chance.

The Celtics ended up not receiving the Grizzlies’ top-eight protected pick (it will be conveyed next year), but still possess three first-round picks in the 2019 draft.

If  Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge decides to keep all of the picks, here’s who Boston is projected to take according to the first mock drafts since the lottery.
