Tonight is the night that every college basketball player has been waiting for, it's time for the 2017 NBA Draft. The draft took place at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, New York. The top stories of the night were who's getting traded, will Lonzo and the Big Baller Brand land in LA, and of course, who will go number one overall.
The big moves started just three days prior to the draft as Boston Celtics traded the number one pick to Philadelphia 76ers for the number three pick and a future first round lottery pick. Philly made an easy decision by picking Washington point guard Markelle Fultz. The Los Angeles Lakers made good on Lavar Ball's promise by picking UCLA's point guard Lonzo Ball at number two. Boston then picked Duke's small forward Jayson Tatum at number three. Rounding out the top five, the Phoenix Suns picked Kansas small forward Josh Jackson at number four, and Kentucky point guard De'Aaron Fox went to the Sacramento Kings at number 5.
As far as trades go, the Chicago Bulls made what is probably the biggest trade of the night, trading all-star small forward Jimmy Butler and the number 16 pick to the Minnesota Timberwovles for shooting guard Zach Lavine, point guard Kris Dunne and the number seven pick. The Portland Trailblazers traded the number 15 and 20 picks to the Kings for the number 10 pick. For more on all the trades click here.
