The 2021 NBA Draft is tonight at 8 p.m. ET. You can watch it on ESPN, ABC (WJLA-TV in the D.C. area) or the ESPN App.

The Washington Wizards have the No. 15 overall pick as of 6:15 p.m. ET as I write it.. That said, the team could always trade up or down, depending on what they decide to do with guards Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook who have both been tied to trade rumors. The most notable rumor is that Westbrook may be going to the Lakers for a package of forwards and a first round pick.

While there’s nothing concrete on Beal rumors, 70 percent of SB Nation Reacts survey respondents nationwide said Beal was more likely to get traded than Damian Lillard.

The Wizards are also hosting a draft party at Capital One Arena tonight and feel free to let us know if you are there.

Washington does not have any picks in the second round due to previous trades. However, they have made trades in each of the last two seasons to acquire a second round pick. This would not be surprising to see, regardless of what happens with Beal and/or Westbrook.
