NBA draft day is here and there will be chaos even before the first overall pick is called out, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is expecting a trade frenzy.
“Trades are the new free agency this time of year,” he said on ESPN on Thursday [AEST].
“We are seeing fewer and fewer high-impact players going into free agency, they’re signing extensions.
“I think you’re going to see teams with multiple draft picks and knowing their best chance to improve is not going to be in July in free agency, it’s going to be around the draft with trades and we’re going to see a lot of them.”
It only adds an extra element of intrigue ahead of what already shapes as an interesting draft class.
With that in mind, foxsports.com.au has picked out four of the most interesting team storylines to follow in Friday’s draft.
