The big day is finally here. The 2014 NBA draft begins at 6:00pm Central time, and we’ll be tracking the draft with pick-by-pick coverage as news breaks, as usual. You can follow our updates on the site, on Twitter, and on Facebook. We’ll also have a special live chat hosted by Eddie Scarito that will start when the draft gets underway and continue through the first round, so stop by and share your thoughts and questions as the picks and trades unfold.
In the meantime, Hoops Rumors has several resources to help you prepare:
- Our Prospect Profile Series is an in-depth look at more than two dozen top prospects. These pieces break down each player’s strengths and weaknesses and provide an idea of how they stack up against the rest of the field. Some include content from exclusive interviews with the prospects who’ve shared their insight with Hoops Rumors.
- Alex Lee’s mock drafts paint a full picture of where the top prospects figure to end up. Versions 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0 cover all 30 picks of the first round.
- A running archive of news related to this year’s draft can be found right here. You can also create an RSS feed for that news by entering hoopsrumors.com/2014-nba-draft/feed into the reader of your choice.
- The draft order is sure to change throughout the night, but here’s a look at which teams are on the clock for each pick from 1 through 60. We’ll keep a running list of the picks atop the site during the draft so you’ll be able to keep on top of the draft at a glance.
The night’s event promises plenty of excitement, and if the 23 picks that changed hands as part of last year’s draft are any indication, there will be no shortage of rumors and player movement. Much of what happens tonight will influence free agency, which begins Tuesday, so now’s the time to keep a close eye on Hoops Rumors as the offseason kicks into overdrive.
