The 2012 NBA Draft is tomorrow night at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey starting at 7:00 p.m. EST and will air on ESPN. We all know that Anthony Davis, the star freshman from the Kentucky Wildcats will be the number one overall pick by the New Orleans Hornets. After that, it’s anybodies guess who goes where.
The Boston Celtics hold the 21st and 22nd overall selections in the first round of the draft, and the 51st overall selection in round two. Rumors have been flying around that the Celtics will try and move up in the draft. These rumors have been quickly dismissed by Celtics President of Basketball Operations, Danny Ainge. I hope that Boston keeps both of its two first round picks tomorrow night. They need all of the help they can get with Kevin Garnett considering retirement and Ray Allen thinking about signing with the Los Angeles Clippers or the Miami Heat.
ESPN.com has a draft machine where you can select who you think will go where in tomorrow night’s draft. So I did just that. Here is what I think will happen tomorrow night:
(Keep in mind that the Houston Rockets own the 12th, 16th, and 18th picks currently due to trades, while Milwaukee Bucks have the 14th pick. This machine was created before the latest trades occurred.)This is a very deep draft, and it will be interesting to see who ends up where. Stay tuned.
