After months of analysis, mock drafts and player breakdowns, the 2017 NBA Draft is finally here, and it could be one to remember. Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball, Jayson Tatum and the rest of the lottery-bound prospects will generate plenty of buzz over the course of the night, but trades and trade rumors will have their say too.
This week has already seen a flurry of activity, including trades of D’Angelo Russell, Dwight Howard and this year’s No. 1 pick. And those are just the deals that actually went down. There’s still plenty of buzz about Paul George, Jimmy Butler, Kristaps Porzingis and more. As everything comes together on Thursday, keep it here for live updates throughout.
NBA Draft 2017
Who will go No. 1 overall? Markelle Fultz appears to be the most likely option after the Celtics swapped draft positions with the Philadelphia 76ers over the weekend in a move that brought them a haul of future assets. Hometown favorite Lonzo Ball is the likely selection for the Los Angeles Lakers at No. 2, but everything after that becomes a mystery.
That’s when the real fun begins.
A year ago, the Portland Trail Blazers had exactly zero picks in the NBA draft.
This year, the Blazers have three first-round picks which brings a wealth of options and some significant decisions to make.
Portland have the No. 15, No. 20 and No. 26 selections.
