How to watch 2022 NBA Draft

Start time: 8 p.m. ET
Location: Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York
TV info/live stream: ESPN, ABC (first round only)

If you aren’t around a TV, you can stream the draft with ABC, WatchESPN or via their mobile apps. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access ABC for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

In that mix as well are guards Shaedon Sharpe and Jaden Ivey. Let’s see how it all plays out in the 2022 NBA Draft.
