When is NBA Draft 2017? Date, time, draft order, how to watch


The 2017 NBA Draft has already been shaken up by a blockbuster trade between the Celtics and 76ers, which gave Philadelphia the No. 1 pick and, presumably, Markelle Fultz.

That, of course, shook up our latest NBA mock draft, which now projects the Celtics to draft SF Josh Jackson at No. 3. That assumes the Lakers still take UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball at No. 2, but Ball to the hometown Lakers may not even be a lock.


Bottom line, we can expect plenty more rumors and drama, if not more trades, leading up to Thursday’s NBA Draft.


Here’s everything you need to know about the 2017 NBA Draft, including date, time and full draft order for both rounds.
