The 2016 NBA Draft takes place tonight on June 23rd, 2016. A common question that basketball fans ask prior to the draft is where and how to check out the live stream of the events to watch online. For 2016, the NBA is showing the draft on WatchESPN as well as Yahoo’s, The Vertical for the first time. Although this year’s draft class is not assessed as being quite as strong as either the 1984 or 1996 NBA Drafts, it still poses to be an exciting evening for fans checking out the action taking place in Brooklyn, New York. If you are looking to check out drafts from recent years, we also have a number of those posted here as well as the 2016 NBA Draft Results as they start to come in this evening. Enjoy!
Who will be Drafted First in the 2016 NBA Draft?
The Philadelphia 76ers are on record that they will draft LSU’s Ben Simmons with the first overall pick in the draft. The Lakers have also stated that they will take Duke’s Brandon Ingram with the second overall of the pick of the draft, and the Boston Celtics will hold on to the third overall pick after a lot of discussions regarding possible trades. Starting with that pick, it should pose to be an interesting night to see how teams balance immediate needs, trades, and the best players left on the draft board at the time of their pick.
Who will the Denver Nuggets Pick in the First Round?
Denver has the seventh, 15th, and 19th picks in the draft. They have a young, but overall talented core with Emmanuel Mudiay and Jusuf Nurkic returning. There are an abundance of guards in the upper tiers of this draft, so we will have to wait and see what moves the team makes this evening to see!
