If This NBA Draft Pick Happens You'll Know A Big Trade Is On The Way

A big trade will have occurred if this player gets picked in this spot.

Trade rumors have been floating around social media all week in anticipation of tonight's NBA Draft.

We're now about an hour away from the draft starting and it seems like at least one big trade involving a superstar player is going to happen.

Kristaps Porzingis, Paul George, Jimmy Butler and LaMarcus Aldridge have all been mentioned as possible trade candidates.

Typically, when a big trade occurs in the NBA Draft, you don't hear about it immediately.

But, if this pick ends up happening tonight, you'll know a big trade is on the way.

From ESPN's Chad Ford:

Mock 8.1 on the way. If the Suns take De'Aaron Fox at 4, then they got someone to bite on a Eric Bledsoe trade. Denver & Chicago were engaged with them today. If they can't swing a deal, Josh Jackson is a more likely pick at 4 ... if he's there.

NBA Draft coverage starts at 7 p.m. E.T. on ESPN.
