The NBA Draft is scheduled for Thursday, June 23rd at 7:30 ET.

It will be located at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The draft will be televised on ABC and ESPN. The second round will also be carried on ESPN.

While the Suns presently do not have any draft picks, they have worked out a number of prospects so it's conceivable they could acquire a pick via a trade.

Four teams are in talks with the Kings about moving up to #4 for Jaden Ivey.

I predict that within four years, every other player in the NBA will be named either "Jaden" or "Jalen."

It's going to be hell for the coaches. "Hey Jaden, get over here. No, not you, Jaden... the other Jaden. No not you either, the other one. Yeah, you..."

Perhaps Sacramento should consider keeping Ivey.

It's been reported he prefers not to be drafted by the Kings but IMO, if you view him as BPA, you draft him and work it out later.

The kings are bad at developing the players they draft. I'd look to get a more solidified player with the cast that they have now after this years trades.

The Nuggets are reportedly getting a lot of interest if they trade Monte Harris. I doubt they would trade him to the Suns. He would make a nice backup point guard. With Jamal Murray returning and Bones Hyland, Harris could be expendable.

The Pacers, Knicks, Thunder and Hawks are trying to move up for the Kings 4th pick.

Interesting. I really thought this was the three PF draft. But seems like a lot of teams really like Ivey.

Lots of interest in Ivey for sure. Gotta go with the BPA. Hopefully the Suns learned that lesson.

When you're dealing with 18 to 21 year olds, there's really no such thing. You want the best prospect available, not necessarily the best player. With all the one and dones, getting the player who is actually best right now is often the wrong move in basketball.

Let's not quibble over words. I'm looking at the best player where a team drafts.

When I look at a player prospect, I not only look at the player now but whether his skills will project on the NBA level.
