2019 NBA Draft order: Updated list of picks for first and second round

2019 NBA Draft order: Updated list of picks for first and second round

The 2019 NBA Draft has arrived, and the order of selection remains a fluid situation.

We’ve already seen several picks change hands over the last week, and we could see even more trades shake up the order both before and during Thursday night’s first round. 

One pick rumored to be in play is the No. 4 selection, which the New Orleans Pelicans acquired from the Los Angeles Lakers as part of the reported Anthony Davis trade last weekend. The Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks among the teams that have reportedly shown interest in trading up to No. 4

The Detroit Pistons acquired another first-rounder Wednesday night. They reportedly received the No. 30 pick and Tony Snell from the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for Jon Leuer. This was a salary dump for the Bucks, who wanted to get rid of Snell's contract.

The Pelicans and Hawks are the only teams with multiple lottery picks, and the Hawks and Celtics own the most first-round selections overall with three apiece.

Here’s the updated 2019 NBA Draft order for the first and second rounds. This list will be updated throughout Thursday as trades happen.

NBC Sports Boston to televise all 2019-20 Maine Red Claws home games

Tacko Time is must-see TV for basketball fans, and there's about to be many more chances to see the 7-foot-7 Celtics rookie.

For the first time in the 11-year history of the Maine Red Claws, their full home schedule will be televised on NBC Sports Boston.

“This partnership gives both Red Claws and Celtics fans an opportunity to closely follow their G League team throughout the season, while providing an up-close view of the development of next-generation Celtics players,” Celtics Team President Rich Gotham said.

That next generation includes Tacko Fall and Tremont Waters, who are both signed to two-way contracts this season. The TV slate kicks off Friday, November 15 with live coverage of the Red Claws' home opener against the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

Here is the full list of dates, times, and opponents for Red Claws games that will be aired on NBC Sports Boston.

NBA picks: Celtics vs. Warriors betting predictions, plays against the spread

NBA picks: Celtics vs. Warriors betting predictions, plays against the spread

Welcome to the "upside down," where the Golden State Warriors are the worst team in the NBA.

The Warriors are plummeting from grace, taking a 2-10 record and a five-game losing streak into Friday's matchup with the Boston Celtics, who remain the No. 1 team in basketball at 9-1.

We haven't quite had Celtics-level success picking Boston's games this season, but we're still above water at 15-8-1 overall and are 5-1-0 picking the moneyline, point spread and point total in the Celtics' last two contests.

As the C's pack their bags for a five-game West Coast swing, we'll look to roll along with them. Here are our betting picks for Celtics-Warriors, as well as two NBA locks against the spread.

(All odds provided by WestGate Superbook.)

Boston Celtics at Golden State Warriors, 10:30 p.m. ET

Moneyline: The Celtics (-330) got great contributions from their bench in Wednesday's win over the Washington Wizards. They'll need to tighten up that defense, but Boston's talent up and down the roster should help the C's cruise to their 10th consecutive win.

Point Spread: We suppose this could be a trap game. The Warriors have to snap their five-game losing streak at some point, and upstart rookie Eric Paschall could give Boston problems in the paint. That said ... Golden State is 1-4-1 against the spread at home this season (isn't Chase Center lovely, though?), and the Celtics (-7) are too deep not to win by double digits.

Point Total: The Celtics just scored their most points in regulation game since 1992 and are facing the second-worst defense in the NBA. The 223.5 point total is actually lower than Wednesday's game, but regardless, we're taking the OVER with the Celtics until notified otherwise.

Darren's record picking the Celtics' moneyline, point spread and point total: 15-8-1

NBA Locks of the Night

Washington Wizards at Minnesota Timberwolves (-7): The Wolves smoked the Wizards by 22 points in their own gym earlier this month. Maybe Washington makes an adjustment, but I'm riding Andrew Wiggins' hot hand and banking on Minnesota to handle its business.

Indiana Pacers at Houston Rockets (-5.5): This line has dropped after opening at 7.5, which suggests an upset could be brewing. I'm not buying it. Indiana is down Myles Turner and Jeremy Lamb against a Rockets team that's won five in a row and just dispatched the Los Angeles Clippers.

Darren's record picking NBA locks against the spread: 9-6-1
