The 2016 NBA Draft is now less than a month away as on June 23rd teams and elite prospects will assemble at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in hopes of changing their fates. Many have called this a “two-man draft” but every draft is chalked full of sleepers, busts, surprises and eventual NBA all-stars.
Last week the NBA Draft Lottery held true to form for the first time in league history meaning the Philadelphia 76ers held onto their No. 1 pick. They have the chance to add to their budding young core of talent with a potential game-changing piece.
FanSided is here to give you the inside scoop on where the top prospects could be selected. With multiple teams having more than one first round pick the draft will likely be trade heavy which always makes for interesting television as well.
