What is the NBA’s draft order?
In an attempt to put all the speculation to rest, Bleacher Report will be unveiling the NBA draft order today.
Here’s what we know so far.1.
The draft order: The order the NBA selects players from teams based on the first round of the NBA playoffs.2.
The players selected: The first round is the most important part of the draft.
After that, there are two rounds of play before the top pick.3.
The teams selected: Teams get to pick any number of players, but the first-round pick goes to the team that gets the No. 1 overall pick.
After the first two rounds, teams can make up to five selections per team.4.
The NBA draft: Teams select the players who are the first four picks in the NBA Draft Lottery.
The top two picks will play for the NBA championship.5.
What happens after the draft: Players get to play in the first three weeks of the regular season.
There are five teams that get the top picks in each round.
If no team wins its first two games, the team with the highest number of wins is the champion.
If the first pick is the best player in the draft, the rest of the picks are based on how many points the team was able to score during the regular-season.6.
Who wins the lottery: After a playoff series, the teams with the best record get to choose their first overall pick, followed by the worst teams in the standings.
If that team loses, they get the No, 2 overall pick and the No., 1 overall choice.
The team that finishes second has the first overall choice in the next round.7.
Which players make the NBA Finals?: The first- and second-round picks will be based on records in the regular seasons.
If the teams have a winning record during the playoffs, then the No..1 pick will be selected.
If they are losing, they’ll get the pick that they lost.8.
Who will be in the finals?: The NBA has a three-game series in the Western Conference against the No./2 seed.
If either team gets the best regular-Season record, they’re in.
If one team wins, the other team goes home.9.
Which team will win the NBA title?: The Warriors are the defending champion, and they’ve won six straight.10.
Which NBA player will win Rookie of the Year?: The Lakers have the best overall record in the league, so their pick will go to the Lakers No. 2 overall.11.
What happened during the NBA lockout?: There was a lockout in the spring of 2018, which meant there were fewer games, fewer games played, fewer playoff games and fewer games between teams.12.
Which teams are on track to win the 2018-19 NBA title?: The Heat are the favorites to win it, and LeBron James is the MVP of the league.
The Cavs are also favorites.13.
What is next in NBA free agency?: There are two new free agents in the 2019 draft class, two new draft picks, and a number of other players entering their free agency.
The 2018-2019 NBA free agents1.
LeBron James: The No.1 overall pick in the 2018 draft is the biggest piece of the 2018 free agent class, but will he be back next season?2.
Kobe Bryant: Bryant is in the final year of his contract, and the Lakers don’t have a franchise player for 2019.
Bryant is an unrestricted free agent in 2020, but he has a choice to return to the Cavs.
Bryant would be eligible for the 2019-2020 NBA Draft.3, Kevin Durant: The Warriors, Heat and Clippers are among the teams interested in Durant.
Durant, who will be 36 next season, could be offered the biggest contract in free agency history if he decides to return.
Durant would be a huge upgrade over Kevin Durant, but that is not guaranteed.4, Dwyane Wade: The Miami Heat have a $24.3 million contract with Wade, but they also have another big man in the form of Shane Battier.
Wade, who has a player option for 2020, could decide to retire at some point.5, Rajon Rondo: The Rondo family has a contract for $30 million with Rondo, and he will likely opt out of the contract.
The Celtics could offer him $20 million per season to stay.6, Pau Gasol: The Gasol family has been involved in a lot of drama over the years.

Love is a restricted free agent for 2019-20, but could come back to the Timberwolves for another season.8, DeMarcus Cousins: The Kings
