Hey everyone, this is the live blog for tonight’s NBA draft.

Yes, this is usually the hub for basketball recruiting but we are also NBA draft friendly.

And we’ve got intel.

Draft Day:

10:27 A.M: According to a source, the Toronto Raptors are emerging as a favorite to select Louisville’s Jordan Nwora with the 28th selection. He talked with the organization several times during the pre-draft process and they’re interested. In addition, another source added that he’s likely to go anywhere from 25-33, but he also spoke to some teams who select prior to those. Nwora is from Buffalo, NY, not too far from Toronto.

12:16 P.M: DePaul’s Paul Reed is a popular prospect amongst teams drafting in the second round. I’ve heard that the Charlotte Hornets are very intrigued by Reed, according to a source. The Hornets currently own the 32nd pick which would be much more likely for them in that spot rather than the other pick they own later on.

Reed also is on the radar of the Sacramento Kings, who hold an early second-rounder with the 35th pick.

6:49 P.M: Western Conference teams are very interested in Mississippi State’s Robert Woodard ahead of this upcoming draft. The Jazz, Spurs, Kings, Nuggets, are amongst several teams that have been listed as potential landing spots for him.

8:04 P.M: The draft just began and I’m hearing the buzz surrounding Iowa State’s Tyrese Haliburton is that the interest begins at the sixth pick with the Atlanta Hawks, in addition, the Pistons are very interested in him right after them at seven. All I can guarantee is that he doesn’t drop beyond the 12th pick. One source added that if the Golden State Warriors traded down, they would look into Haliburton.

MINNESOTA CHOOSES ANTHONY EDWARDS WITH THE TOP PICK...

Thoughts from his head coach, Tom Crean: “He cares deeply about the work that goes into being great but he also cares about his teammates' success too.”

TYRESE HALIBURTON WON’T FALL

8:30 P.M: Per a league source, Haliburton’s fall won’t move beyond the 12th overall pick, one source said if he does he will be the steal of the draft.
