The 2017 NBA Draft will be held on Thursday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and will begin at 7 p.m.
Thursday’s first and second rounds will be broadcast by ESPN and can be streamed on WatchESPN.
The first overall pick in Thursday’s Draft might not be much of a surprise after it was reported by multiple sources on Sunday that the Boston Celtics traded the first overall pick to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for the No. 3 pick. The 76ers are expected to Draft Washington guard Markelle Fultz first overall. The Celtics should receive at least one more compensatory pick from the 76ers as part of the deal, according to ESPN.
The Hawks have three picks in Thursday’s Draft— the No. 19 pick in the first round and the 41st and 60th overall picks in the second round. The Hawks traded center Dwight Howard and the 31st overall selection to the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday night in exchange for Miles Plumlee, Marco Belinelli and the 41st overall pick.
