2016 NBA Draft Viewing Guide and Open Thread

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Alright kids, the NBA Draft is upon us as the best players college basketball has to offer finds out where they are headed to start their professional careers. For UNC all eyes will be on Brice Johnson who is likely a late first round pick which means you can probably wait a good hour plus before paying attention to the event.

Based on media reports it looks like Philadelphia will take LSU's Ben Simmons #1 overall with Duke's Brandon Ingram going second the the L.A. Lakers. Providence's Kris Dunn, who looked the part of NBA guard when he faced UNC during the NCAA Tournament, is being tossed around as the possible #3 pick Boston. The Celtics have eight(!) picks across two rounds so expect to hear Boston's name quite a bit during the evening whether it be picks or trading picks.

The Michael Jordan owned Charlotte Hornets have just one pick this evening, the 22nd.

Here is all the relevant information.
