The 2020 NBA draft will be held on November 18, 2020. The draft was originally scheduled to be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, but will now be conducted at ESPN’s facilities in Bristol, Connecticut, with it being held via videoconferencing. National Basketball Association (NBA) teams will take turns selecting amateur United States college basketball players and other eligible players, including international players. It will be televised nationally on ESPN. The draft lottery was originally scheduled to take place on May 19, 2020, but due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it was instead held on August 20, 2020. This is the first draft since 1975 to not be held in June, and also the second to be done later than that month, after the inaugural 1947 draft, conducted in July by the NBA’s predecessor, the Basketball Association of America (BAA). The first pick will be made by the Minnesota Timberwolves.
