NBA Draft 2017

So, over the past few days there has been a lot of trade rumors, switches in picks and busy front offices, leading up to tonight NBA Draft 2017. I honestly think that tonight’s draft is surely one not to miss. Tonight, sixty (60) young and fresh prospects will be getting an opportunity to fulfill their dreams of being an NBA player. 

The Philadelphia 76ers originally had the 3rd pick of the draft, however they traded with Boston Celtics and now will have the 1st pick of this year’s NBA draft. It was pretty clear as to who the Celtics were going to pick, so tonight I think that the first pick, first round goes to Markelle Fultz. 

My top five (5) picks for tonight’s NBA draft are: Markelle Fultz (76ers), Lonzo Ball (LA Lakers), Josh Jackson (Boston Celtics), Jayson Tatum (Phoenix Suns) and De’Aaron Fox (Sacramento Kings).
