When is the NBA Draft 2017: Date, time, other key NBA dates

The NBA Draft changes franchises. Whether it’s getting a can’t-miss prospect at the top of the draft or wisely selecting a lesser-known player that turns out to be Kawhi Leonard or Giannis Antetokounmpo, teams’ fates can be dramatically altered by a single good -- or bad -- selection.

This year’s top prospects are Washington’s Markelle Fultz, Kansas’ Josh Jackson and UCLA’s Lonzo Ball. Any one of them could be taken No. 1 overall, but most feel that spot belongs to Fultz.
