The NBA Finals had fans on the edge of their couches as the Denver Nuggets brought home their first ever NBA championship title. Now is the time to sit back and tune in to the 2023 NBA Draft, where all eyes will likely be on 7-foot-3 19-year-old Victor Wembanyama, the presumed No. 1 pick of the San Antonio Spurs. Brandon Miller and Scoot Henderson are battling for the No. 2 spot. There are seven teams with multiple first-round picks: Charlotte Hornets (No. 2 and No. 27), Portland Trail Blazers (No. 3 and No. 23), Houston Rockets (No. 4 and No. 20), Orlando Magic (No. 6 and No. 11), Utah Jazz (No. 9, No. 16 and No. 28), Brooklyn Nets (No. 21 and No. 22) and Indiana Pacers (No. 7, No. 26 and No. 29). But because trades could always shake up the draft order, we’ll just have to see everything play out on NBA Draft night.

“I think this is the year we’re going to see a lot of teams try to make plays for trades and players that they want, whether it’s at the top of the draft or teams trading back,” said an NBA – scout for Yahoo Sports.
