The NBA Draft is here. We're through more than 10 picks thus far.

Deandre Ayton went No. 1 overall to the Phoenix Suns, quickly followed up by Marvin Bagley III to the Sacramento Kings. Former Oklahoma star Trae Young was the first guard off the board at No. 5.

Collin Sexton was the next point guard off the board. He was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Now, the final top point guard is gone. Kentucky's Shai Gilgeuous-Alexander was just drafted by the Charlotte Hornets, but ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Hornets will trade Gilgeous-Alexander to the Clippers.

In return, the Hornets will receive Miles Bridges, who the Clippers selected No. 12 overall, and two second-round picks.

The Clippers were looking for a point guard, and made a bold move to land the former Kentucky star.

Bridges, a former Michigan State star who could have been a lottery pick last year, is headed to Charlotte.
