Celtics Get 19th Pick In Draft

Celtics shimmy to No. 19 in draft - Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson oversaw drawings at the Board of Governors meeting to break ties among teams that finished the season with matching records and Boston won a four-way tie-breaker with San Antonio, Oklahoma City, and Portland to shimmy all the way up to No. 19 in the 2010 draft.

The Green could have selected anywhere from 19-22 after all four teams finished with 50-32 records. The four teams do reverse order in the second round, so Boston's second-round selection will be No. 52 overall. 

For frame of reference, some other 19 picks from recent years include J.J. Hickson, Hakim Warrick, Javaris Crittenton, Zach Randolph, and Jamaal Magloire.
