NBA Draft Extends to Two Days for the First Time

New York. In contrast to the NFL, the draft in the NBA has so far been a relatively quick affair and was completed in one evening. The professional basketball league is now changing course and has a new format in the summer.

The NBA is extending the draft to two days this year. The first round of talent drawing is scheduled to take place on June 26th in a large setting at the Brooklyn Nets’ Barclays Center, and the second round will take place the following day in the ESPN television studios.

The NBA said it was believed it would help the teams if there was time for meetings and considerations after the first round. There are five minutes of thinking time between the so-called picks in the first round, and in the second round there will be four minutes instead of the current two.

During the draft, the teams are allowed to select young talents in turn. The worst teams from the previous season start. The additions sometimes have enormous importance for the teams’ future successes. Last year, the San Antonio Spurs selected Frenchman Victor Wembanyama first overall. The now 20-year-old is considered the greatest basketball talent since LeBron James and has made a good impression so far this season.
