Everything you need to know for the 2020 NBA Draft

It’s draft day for the NBA. We break down how to watch and what to watch for the 2020 NBA Draft.

The 2020 NBA Draft is scheduled to go down Wednesday evening and uncertainty is the name of the game. The draft gets underway at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN, and the No. 1 pick is still not entirely clear. Anthony Edwards is a slight favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, but LaMelo Ball is running close and James Wiseman isn’t entirely out of the picture.

NBA trade season has begun in earnest, and we can expect it to only get crazier on Wednesday leading up to and during the draft. We’ll be tracking all the moves and selections, but first, here’s a look at everything you need to get ready for tonight.
