The Spurs are scheduled to pick 11th, but a trade could end up changing things at the last moment

NBA: NBA Draft Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the 2020 NBA DRAFT Thread. Veterans of discussion threads know how we do things around here, but for all you newbies we have a few rules. Our community guidelines apply and basically say be cool, no personal attacks, don’t troll and don’t swear too much.

It’s the annual spectacle where the league commissioner stands at a podium and brings representatives of the teams up to announce their picks of players who are going to be the young talent that makes fans’ hopes spring eternal for title contention. But this year will be different, because it’s 2020, and everything’s different. The whole event will be virtual, so I have no idea how newly drafted players will be able to put on the hat of the team that drafted them, unless the league sent all thirty hats to every player who’s going to be on the broadcast remotely. UPDATE: They did!

Anyway, the Spurs are scheduled to pick in the 11th spot, but don’t be shocked if they end up making a move if they want a player that won’t be available at that spot, or even moving down if they get a good offer from another team for the 11th slot. Brian Wright is still pretty new at the job, and it’ll be interesting to see what kind of moves he’ll make for the Silver and Black, or should I now say the Teal, Orange, and Pink, which are the Fiesta colors.
