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.

NBA Rumors: Celtics felt teams tampered in pursuit of Al Horford

NBA Rumors: Celtics felt teams tampered in pursuit of Al Horford

Al Horford signing with the rival 76ers in free agency was an unexpected and upsetting turn of events for the Celtics.

But it appears the C's were even more upset with the events that led up to Horford signing a four-year, $109 million deal with Philadelphia. Horford recently stated he was "surprised" by the Sixers' interest, but the Celtics reportedly believe teams had deals on the table for Horford before free agency even began, ruining their chances of re-signing the 12-year veteran.

On the latest Hoop Collective Podcast, ESPN's Brian Windhorst said Boston complained about teams tampering in their pursuit of Horford.

“I don’t know if you heard this, but the Celtics were, from what I am told, one of the teams that kind of stomped their feet about what they felt was tampering,” Windhorst told co-hosts Jackie MacMullan and Tim MacMahon. “Not with Kyrie, although that looked like it was lined up pretty far in advance, but with Horford.

“What happened with Horford, again from what I’m told, really upset the Celtics. They were thinking they were going to be able to negotiate with him. Talk to him about a new contract and all of a sudden it was like he already knew what his market was and he was out of there.”

If Danny Ainge felt there was some foul play involved in Horford's free agency, he hasn't expressed it publicly. The C's general manager attributed Horford's decision to it simply being a "different era" in the NBA.

Regardless of what may or may not have gone down in teams' pursuits of Horford, the Celtics rebounded quickly after his departure by signing eccentric big man Enes Kanter and re-signing Daniel Theis to a two-year contract.

What are the greatest debuts in Boston sports history?

Anticipation was high when Gustavo Bou took the pitch for his first game after signing a contract with the New England Revolution, and the Revs' investment in the Argentinian forward paid off, as he capped the first half with a brilliant strike on Wednesday night.

With that spectacular goal, Bou etches his name alongside some Boston sports legends (and some other notable athletes) who also made an immediate impact in their debut performances.

Hall of Famers like Pedro Martinez, Randy Moss, Kevin Garnett and Ray Bourque all had memorable first games with their respective local teams.

Here are some of the greatest debut performances in Boston sports history.
