The Baseline: 2016 NBA Draft Recap

What the hell happened in the NBA Draft? The first two picks remained chalk but Boston turned the draft upside down and many teams seemed to follow suit. We breakdown the madness that was the 2016 NBA Draft.

  • Derrick Rose joins the Knicks in a pre-draft trade that sends Robin Lopez and Jerian Grant to the Bulls.
  • Serge Ibaka was swapped for Victor Oladipo as the Thunder and Magic switch things up in a major way.
  • The Pacers acquire Jeff Teague and Thaddeus Young in two separate deals before the draft.
  • The Sixers nabbed Ben Simmons and completed their draft with two other picks that seem to fit.
  • The Celtics confused many experts with the selection of Jaylen Brown and a relative unknown at 16. Did Boston blow it?
  • The Suns and Nuggets filled needs but Denver might have too many players heading into the season.
  • Thon Maker jumped up the draft board and heads to Milwaukee.

We touch on the overall winners and losers, the weird and value potentially found in the second round. Tune in.
