2018 NBA Draft order, date, time: When will your favorite team pick in the upcoming draft?
Now that the order of the NBA Draft is set, it's time to see where everybody is picking
The NBA Draft represents one thing for every struggling fan base: hope. With one smart pick, an organization can go from the bottom to the top in a short period of time. And with all the games now complete, and the Warriors once again champions, it's time to start thinking about the 2018 NBA Draft. The lottery order is set with the Suns picking first overall. The Kings and Hawks follow with picks No. 2 and No. 3. Right behind them are the Grizzlies at fourth.
This year's draft class is loaded, and not just at the top. Deandre Ayton and Marvin Bagley III are premium one-and-done players sure to hear their name called early, but international star Luka Doncic has franchise-changing talent, too. From top to bottom, the first round is loaded with quality talent in an unusually deep draft.
