NBA Draft 2020 Live Stream and TV Broadcast : As is the case with most of the NBA’s major broadcasts, ESPN owns the television rights for the NBA Draft 2020 proceedings.
With only a few hours to go for the start of the 2020-21 season, the NBA Draft is the first formality for everyone to cross. The Minnesota Timberwolves, Golden State Warriors and Charlotte Hornets respectively own the top 3 picks of this draft class. The top 3 prospects of this class are Anthony Edwards, LaMelo Ball and James Wiseman.
The New York Knicks have moved up the draft to take the 23rd pick from the Utah Jazz in exchange for the 27th and 38th picks. The Houston Rockets acquired a first-round pick from the Blazers in this year’s draft by trading Robert Covington, in addition to one next year.

ESPN will be televising the draft tonight starting at 8 PM Eastern Time. Streamers can catch the NBA draft through the ESPN app or FuboTV, in addition to the widely marketed NBA League Pass.
Much of the attention during this year’s draft proceedings will be on LaMelo Ball. The Ball brother is expected to be a supersized combo guard akin to his brother Lonzo, who was also a top-3 pick in 2017.

The likes of Deni Avdija, Tyrese Haliburton and Killian Hayes are some of the other prospects to garner tons of attention. All 3 of them are capable playmakers, while Haliburton is also a lights out shooter. Hayes and Avdija are international prospects with the ability to run great transition plays.
Draft nights have had some of the most happening trades taking place in the past. The Mavericks made the steal of the decade on draft night by moving up 2 spots to pick Luka Doncic in 2018. It remains to be seen whether a player or team can replicate this sort of success.
