When Is the 2020 NBA Draft?

When is the 2020 NBA Draft? originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

The NBA is approaching an unprecedented offseason that will not only be held in the midst of a global pandemic, but teams will have less time to prepare for the upcoming campaign than a typical year.

After the NBA Finals end in October, teams will have about 10 weeks until the start of the 2020-21 season. One of the most important events over those two and a half months? The NBA Draft.

The draft order was set Aug. 20, when the lottery awarded the Minnesota Timberwolves the No. 1 overall pick. NCAA stars Anthony Edwards (Georgia) and James Wiseman (Memphis) are in contention with Illawarra’s LaMelo Ball for the top selection.

Here’s everything you need to know about the NBA Draft.

When is the 2020 NBA Draft date?

The NBA announced Sept. 16 that the 2020 NBA Draft will take place Wednesday, Nov. 18, though the date “remains subject to change as circumstances warrant.”
