What: 2021 NBA Draft

When: 8:00pm EDT

Where: Barclays Center; New York, NY

How to watch: ESPN, NBATV

The 2021 NBA Draft is officially upon us. Futures are made and fans have viral reactions that will look ridiculous in very little time. The Charlotte Hornets are currently slated to pick three times:

  • Round 1, pick 11
  • Round 2, pick 56
  • Round, pick 57

I’d be quite surprised if the Hornets make all three of those picks in their currently allocated slots. Reports are saying the Hornets have gauged some trade down scenarios, and the team probably won’t find much practical value in two picks in the late 50s.

If you want to do some last minute studying up on prospects to make an opinion or just to pass the time, we’ve put together a number of scouting reports in our Buzzworthy Picks series.

In case you are trying to be time efficient with your draft viewing, the 11th pick was made at about 9:15 last year, so that’s about when I’d expect the Hornets to select tonight.
