NBA Draft Preview and Predictions

This Thursday night the NBA Draft takes place from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. A loaded draft class with a clear number one overall pick in Zion Williamson and loads of other talent that will be eager to see where they land. It is always an interesting night at the draft as there are usually a lot of trades made which always is exciting. The biggest trade we thought we could see though may have already gone down as Anthony Davis was traded from the New Orleans Pelicans to the Los Angeles Lakers in a mega deal. There should still be some great trades though and you can watch the draft on ESPN at 7pm ET.
