NBA Mock Draft

As we all know by now, the Boston Celtics have traded the #1 pick in the 2017 NBA Drafts (thanks Brooklyn!) to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for the #3 pick and a future first round pick.
What was once a debate about if the Celtics would pass on Markelle Fultz to keep Lonzo Ball away from the Los Angeles Lakers, now we have to wonder what Boston will do with the 3rd pick.   They have a tough decision to make between Josh Jackson and Jayson Tatum.  Should they go with either forward, does that keep them from adding Gordon Hayward in free agency?

The Sacramento Kings are in a great place, but need to make sure they add the right pieces with two of the top 10 picks.  Going with a Guard/Big combo is easier said than done.  Do they grab Jonathan Isaac/Lauri Markkanen and then see if Malik Monk/Dennis Smith fall to them at 10?  Or do they grab De'Aaron Fox with the 5th pick and select the best available big at 10, with the security of an extra top 10 big in Zach Collins?
