The 2017 NBA Draft order is set. The NBA broke the remaining ties with a drawing, and there was of course the NBA Draft lottery that gave the Celtics, Lakers, and 76ers the top three picks. Philly’s third pick came via a pick swap with Sacramento.

The Portland Trail Blazers are set to have three picks in the first round: No. 15 (their own pick), No. 20 (a pick acquired in the Jusuf Nurkic trade) and No. 26 (the Cavaliers’ pick). The Raptors won a four-way tie to select No. 23 overall.

The Brooklyn Nets, who finished with the NBA’s worst record, had no shot at No. 1 overall due to the Kevin Garnett-Paul Pierce trade. They ultimately handed that selection over to the Celtics. But the Nets will make picks No. 22 and 27.

The Philadelphia 76ers, according to brand, are on track to make four picks in the second round.
