The 2020 NBA Draft is set for November 18th after the longest season in League history. The order for the first and second round is set and we already know that the Minnesota Timberwolves will be selecting No. 1 overall after winning the NBA Draft Lottery back in August. Some of the top prospects who could be selected high in the draft include SG Anthony Edwards, G LaMelo Ball and C James Wiseman, among others.
The Rockets hired Stephen Silas to take over for Mike D’Antoni as head coach. It will be interesting to see if Silas can get the most out of James Harden and Russell Westbrook operating on the court at the same time, something D’Antoni never really figured out. Will Houston’s roster get an overhaul with a new coach? It’s possible since the roster lacks size. The Rockets will need to address this in free agency or via trades, since as you can see, the team has no draft picks.
The Houston Rockets have traded each of their first and second round picks in the 2020 NBA Draft.
