The NBA draft is just a few minutes away and there have already been a bevy of trades before the draft even started.

Despite a significant amount of trades before the draft, there are a few players who already know where they'll be playing next season. Former Duke star Zion Williamson is set to become the No. 1 pick of the New Orleans Pelicans.

Shortly after Williamson's name is called, his former teammate will likely be the No. 2 pick off the board - and no, we're not talking about R.J. Barrett.

Williamson's former AAU teammate and star point guard Ja Morant will be the No. 2 pick made by the Memphis Grizzlies.

With Morant in the draft room before the draft officially kicks off is his girlfriend, KK Dixon.

The pair appear to have been dating since fall 2018.

Morant entered the season as a little-known player, but put together an incredible sophomore season at Murray State to rise up draft boards.

He put himself in the conversation as the player of the year in college basketball and, in the process, solidified his status as the second-best player in the draft.

In a few minutes, his name will be called with the No. 2 pick.
