2012 NBA Draft Order: Celtics Have Three Picks On Thursday Night

The Boston Celtics have three picks entering Thursday night's 2012 NBA Draft, which begins at 7 p.m. ET inside the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey (TV: ESPN).

Boston enters the draft with two first round selections at No. 21 and No. 22 overall. Their only other pick is the No. 51 overall selection (No. 21 pick in the second round). Last year, the Celtics had two draft picks and landed JaJuan Johnson and E'Twaun Moore.

The New Orleans Hornets have the first overall pick in the draft, and will most likely select Kentucky center Anthony Davis. The Charlotte Bobcats, Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers and Sacramento Kings round out the top five picks. The complete draft order for Thursday's draft can be viewed on the NBA's website.
