As the celebration comes to an end for the 2018-19 season, NBA execs are already looking ahead and ready to bring on some new fresh faces.
This year’s NBA Draft takes place tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn; with the top three picks being signed, sealed and delivered in the eyes of many (#1 Pelicans - Zion Williamson, #2 Grizzlies - Ja Morant, #3 Knicks - RJ Barrett), the remaining picks still have people wondering.
After the shocking trade of Anthony Davis to the Lakers this past weekend, the Pelicans were able to solidify the number four pick in the draft and the Grizzlies acquired the number 23 pick after trading Mike Conley to the Jazz yesterday. Having two picks in the first round means either team can use their pick in exchange for an established player. Another team with a great position this draft goes to the Atlanta Hawks who have four picks in this year’s draft. What looks like promising future for last year’s pick of Trae Young, Atlanta can make another impactful rookie pick at No. 8 and use their remaining picks as leverage.
Who will your team draft this year?
Coverage begins at 7pm on ESPN.
