The 2015 NBA Draft is finally here, featuring a duo of big men with franchise-player potential in Jahlil Okafor and Karl-Anthony Towns, a point guard that fits perfectly into an NBA rife with talent backcourt players in D'Angelo Russell, and plenty of other exciting draftees taking the next step in their careers. The draft will be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn once again, with Adam Silver steering the show through the first round. Television coverage begins Thursday at 4 p.m. PT on ESPN.
The Los Angeles Lakers are prepared to make their decision after an exhaustive pre-draft process. Mitch Kupchak has all of his options laid out, and the front office is essentially already on the clock. With trade rumors swirling around DeMarcus Cousins and free agency set to crash the draft party things are only getting more interesting in Laker Land.
The show always makes for a fun experience and is a great introduction to the incoming draft class. Silver Screen and Roll invites everyone to enjoy the draft festivities in our community live thread while we bring our wide-range of coverage to the historic night.
A long month of speculation comes down to a single night of excitement. Enjoy the show!
