10th.

As long as Sacramento doesn't have a miraculous turnaround, the protections Ainge got on this Lakers pick could be one more genius move by him and the team.
As long as the pick doesn't win the lottery its going to be a solid pick, especially if you believe Boston sources that they were going to take Tatum at #1.

A lottery pick just by leveraging other teams misread of your draft intentions is massive. Most of the time in similar moves teams have gotten less, 76ers and Wolves pulled similar tricks that I can recall.
