NBA Draft 2019 takes place on Thursday, June 20, and here is how fans can enjoy the drama-filled event from start to finish.

The NBA Draft is one of the best events on the calendar. Fans have already seen two massive trades in the days leading up to the draft. They can expect more maneuvering today.

The draft is also a time of hope for every team. Each franchise had their record reset to zero and zero. They are dreaming of selecting that game-changing talent in the draft or signing that All-Star in free agency. Some only want to be that surprise team that everyone is talking about next year. It is all possible on draft night.

The Dallas Mavericks traded away their first round pick in last year’s Luka Doncic deal with the Hawks. The Mavs are still selecting, though.
