The 2019 NBA Draft is set to begin in about 24 hours and, according to the latest update from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, a ton of trades are on the way.
The ESPN NBA insider reported this evening that an “extraordinary” amount of movement is likely coming during this year’s draft.
The reason: Several teams, including the Celtics and Hawks, have a ton of draft picks and don’t want to use all of them.
So, there will be some teams trying to package picks together to either move up in the draft or collect other assets.
San Antonio is reportedly another team that could do some movement.
“I think there will be an extraordinary number of trades tomorrow night”
Says BOS and ATL both don’t want to pick 3 times and teams from the 2nd round will be trying to move up into the last ~7 picks of the First Round
