NBA Draft Lottery 2019: Live stream, TV info, start time for event

The power balance of the NBA could shift Tuesday night in Chicago.

That may seem like hyperbole, but Zion Williamson has franchise-altering potential, and whichever team wins Tuesday's 2019 NBA Draft Lottery will have first dibs on the Duke star.

We know that team won't be the Celtics, but Boston could walk away from Tuesday's lottery with as many as two selections thanks to the Sacramento Kings and Memphis Grizzlies. (More on that here.)

Here are the Celtics' odds of landing each pick:

#2 pick — 1.1%
#3 pick — 1.2%
#4 pick — 1.4%
#9 pick — 34.1%
#10 pick — 8.0%
#11 pick — 0.5%
#12 pick — <0.1%
#14 pick — 95.2%

The order of the top 14 picks in the 2019 NBA Draft will be revealed in reverse order, starting at No. 14 and ending with the No. 1 pick.

The revealing process is scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. ET. You can also tune into NBC Sports Boston at 8:30 p.m. ET for a special edition of "Celtics Post Up" with Kyle Draper, Brian Scalabrine, A. Sherrod Blakely and Chris Forsberg, as they react live to the lottery results.

Jaylen Brown drills two half-court shots in awesome Celtics practice video

Jaylen Brown drills two half-court shots in awesome Celtics practice video

Jaylen Brown recently deactivated his Instagram account to focus on basketball.

It appears that plan is working.

The Celtics held their second practice as a team Saturday since entering the NBA "bubble" at Disney's Wide World of Sports in Orlando, and according to the team's social media, Brown was the star of the show.

Here's a terrific 40-second clip of the Celtics wing sinking not one but two half-court shots before celebrating with what we'll call a cartwheel:

Brown gleefully said, "I got my money" after hitting the first shot, but his opponent -- our guess is that's point guard Kemba Walker -- matched him, leading the 23-year-old to knock down another shot and send his teammates into a frenzy.

Who said there's no fun in the bubble?

The NBA's Twitter account posted another angle of one of Brown's makes in addition to footage of big men Tacko Fall and Enes Kanter getting their work in.

The Celtics have two weeks to shake off the rust before their restarted 2019-20 season begins with a July 31 matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Boston currently is the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference, but some believe the C's have a legitimate shot to contend for an NBA title this summer.

If that's the case, the Celtics will need Brown -- who was averaging a career-high 20.4 points and 6.4 rebounds before the season was paused -- to display more of the talent he flashed Saturday on the practice court.

Jayson Tatum shouts out Celtics' Kara Lawson for landing Duke head coach job

Jayson Tatum shouts out Celtics' Kara Lawson for landing Duke head coach job

Kara Lawson is pulling a reverse Jayson Tatum.

The Duke women's basketball team announced Saturday it has named Lawson its new head coach, meaning she'll leave her role as a Boston Celtics assistant coach after this season to join the Blue Devils.

The Celtics will be sad to see Lawson go after her lone season as the first female assistant coach in franchise history. But Tatum, who starred at Duke before coming to Boston, approves of her next gig.

From one Tatum "family" to another.

Lawson technically leaves behind two Duke alumni, as Celtics forward Semi Ojeleye played two seasons for the Blue Devils from 2013 to 2015 before transferring to SMU.

Tatum is a proud supporter of his alma mater -- where he spent just one season in 2016-17 before the Celtics drafted him No. 3 overall -- so his excitement for Lawson is understandable.

Tatum also will be hoping Lawson can help the Blue Devils back on track after they failed to reach the NCAA Tournament last season for just the second time in 25 years.
