What's your ideal draft scenario?

What would you like to see happen between the draft lottery and draft day? Obviously most of us would love the see the Celtics win the lottery. But then what? Trade that pick for some veteran? Draft one of the consensus top four players?

Here is my ideal scenario: I would love to see the Celtics draft Joel Embiid with their first pick. Then I would love to see them trade up to the 5-7 range and draft Aaron Gordon. To facilitate this trade, they could use the #17 pick plus Brandon Bass, next years Philly pick, or even Jeff Green. This would give them a great young nucleus with defensive talent. Rondo, Bradley, A. Gordon, Sullinger (or Kelly), and Embiid would be a terrific young core. Add to that some veterans (hopefully with some ability to score) and this could be a team that makes a big jump, and it could also well set up for the long term (don't forget Ainge would still be in position to pursue some quality free agents in 2015).

So, that's my ideal scenario (it may be a little over optimistic, but I can dream). I understand it may not be yours, but I look forward to hearing what you think.
