Draft is next up during NBA's dizzying days of deals

National Basketball Association players took to twitter an provided commentary throughout the night-making the draft experience that much more special for fans.

The 2017 NBA Draft was supposed to be wild and unpredictable. It was the kind of smart, solid drafting the Kings haven't done enough of in recent seasons.

McDonough called Jackson a flawless fit for the Suns, joining Booker and T.J. Warren as versatile wing players.

The 19-year-old, a Washington freshman point guard, took to his Instagram account to make the announcement, but left his followers confused.

That approach yielded plenty of optimism in that department. The Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies also are without a pick, while Houston, New Orleans and Washington don't have one in the first round. Expect to see him in the elite group in years to come because the sky is the limit for this kid. "I just realized that I was doing stuff that other kids weren't doing and it just started to work out for me".

The Bulls traded Jimmy Butler and their 16th pick to Minnesota for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the TimberWolves' seventh pick, two people told The Associated Press.

A dependable scorer and hard-nosed defender, Butler gives Thibodeau an intriguing complement to the Wolves' young stars Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

But there are no guarantees that anything will get better for the Sixers.

Okafor has been the closest thing to an ironman of the incumbent Philadelphia trio, having played in 103 of a possible 164 games in his first two seasons in the National Basketball Association. So, then, can it get any better for Minnesota? In one year at Kansas, Jackson electrified with his ability to win above the rim for head coach Bill Self.

Below are the picks from the second round. As the Clippers gently prepare for a potential life without Chris Paul, J.J. Redick or Blake Griffin, the Western Conference powerhouse did well to grab guards Juwan Evans (No. 39) and Sindarius Thornwell (No. 48) after trading into the round twice.

Dozier performed well in the NCAA Tournament, helping SC to a Final Four run. However, Phoenix hasn't solved its point guard problems and Booker might find it hard giving the rookie the rock when he can just score 70 by himself in defeat. Vice president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo and the rest of the brass felt that Fultz was the flawless fit and made the move to get him.

These players will likely earn a summer league contract.


I'm not quite sure what it is exactly, but the way that Embiid and his teammates embraced Fultz before he was officially drafted counts for something.

"And what you've got here is a unique NBA-style athlete".

Silent, at least so far, were the Knicks, who began the day shopping disgruntled Kristaps Porzingis but were apparently asking too high a price. The show will be hosted by SI Now anchor Maggie Gray and includes former No. 1 overall pick Kwame Brown, former Minnesota Timberwolves GM David Kahn, current National Basketball Association players Garrett Temple of the Sacramento Kings and Kyle O'Quinn of the New York Knicks as analysts.

The Lakers sent Russell and Russian center Timofey Mozgov to the Brooklyn Nets for center Brook Lopez and the rights to forward Kyle Kuzma, the 27th pick in the draft, out of Utah. Lakers land picks No. 30 (Josh Hart) and 42 (Thomas Bryant).
