We've still got a long way to go, and between now and next month we'll see prospects rise and fall, teams contemplate moves on the board and websites continuously debate how the Draft will play out countless times over.

The NBA Draft will take place June 27 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. and will be televised beginning at 6 PM on ESPN.
