NBA draft draws second-largest audience on ESPN

27 June, 2017, 14:30 | Author: Christina Hansen

Beyond the scouting, strategy and suspense of teams trying to select the right player for their slot in the NBA Draft, a spate of trades spiced up the proceedings at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Thursday.

The 2017 NBA Draft is in the books, so now it's time to look at who lost big during Thursday night's big event. With the combination of his athleticism, defensive capability and shooting range, Anunoby could be the highest value pick of the entire draft.

Trading away Jimmy Butler and draft picks for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and the rights to Markkanen left National Basketball Association fans scratching their heads and comparing the deal to highway robbery.

Philadelphia 76ers' draft picks Anzejs Pasecniks, from left, Markelle Fultz, and team president Bryan Colangelo laugh during a news conference at the team's NBA basketball training complex, Friday, June 23, 2017, in Camden, NJ. "We're going to be a fun, energetic, entertaining team, but we're going to do it on both ends of the floor". And the Sixers have plenty of blanks to fill in on their roster before becoming a playoff contender. Oh, and they could have had Justin Patton at No. 16 as well.

The NBA champion Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers didn't have a pick in the two-round draft.

For what it's worth, according to CBS Sports, this pick was considered a B-. Despite winning the championship this past season, the Warriors were not ideal. "Where'd they get that info?" I woke up and thought I was going to Boston for another workout with the Celtics.

The Lakers and Kings will play July 10.

No. 4 pick Josh Jackson and the Phoenix Suns will open against No. 5 pick De'Aaron Fox and the Sacramento Kings at 7:30 p.m. July 7 at the T&M. Free agency, after all, is only a few years away. Jackson is a ideal replacement for Rudy Gay who already announced that he was opting out of his contract. Despite being undersized, Mason is a crafty player who will find multiple ways to contribute at the next level. The Bulls acquired point guard Kris Dunn despite already having Rajon Rondo and Cameron Payne under contract. There's a lot of work that still needs to be done here.

The No. 1 overall pick in this National Basketball Association draft has become an instant fan favorite before signing his rookie contract.

The 76ers needed a unique guard, someone who could run the point in place of Ben Simmons at times and also play off the ball with Simmons, with enough of a perimeter game to compensate for a Simmons weakness. It's going to be a group of players that are interchangeable and versatile. I am not claiming that Markannen will be a bust. Executives understand that they need players with the "do-it-all" quality and not just pure scorers that can't bring more than one or two skills to the table.

The Raptors could have selected forwards Tyler Lydon or Caleb Swanigan (the 24th and 26th selections, respectively) but gambled on a player recovering from a major surgery. "This is a tremendous night for the Sixers and our great fans".

Fultz was all set to become a Celtic but on Monday the pick was officially dealt to Philadelphia. However, it made a decision to trade the 15th and 20th picks to Sacramento in exchange for the 10th pick in the draft where the Trail Blazers selected center Zach Collins from Gonzaga University. So I was like, 'OK, cool.

First, Simmons and Embiid need to be healthy. Those are lottery pick tools, but he wound up being selected with the 47th pick in the draft.

Minnesota Timberwolves - Word on the street coming into the draft was that Tom Thibodeau wanted to get a veteran to help Minnesota speed up its rebuilding process. With talented players, of course, all problems are solvable. Winners will take into account, players, teams, and anything or anyone who benefited from the draft and the draft hype.
