After all the hype, trade rumors, and nonsense, we’ve finally arrived at the big day.
Thanks to Wednesday’s trade, the Wizards currently do not have a pick in this year’s draft. If that holds, it would be the second straight season the Wizards go without making a draft pick. However, David Aldridge of NBA.com is reporting the Wizards are looking to acquire a high second round pick.
If they do make a move to get back into the second round, it would probably have to be a move where they use cash considerations to get a pick. It’s hard to envision anyone on the roster who could yield that kind of a return other than the players who are worth well more than a high second round pick.
Here is the key info for Thursday and some other stuff to help you pass the time before the big event. We’ll have a fresh open thread at 7 p.m. for when the draft gets underway.
When: Thursday, June 22 at 7 p.m. Eastern Time
Where: Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York
