2020 NBA Draft order: Updated full list of picks for first and second rounds

2020 NBA Draft order: Updated full list of picks for first, second rounds originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The 2020 NBA Draft is just a few hours away and the order of selection continues to shuffle.

A total of 12 first-round picks, as of this writing, will be made by a team that acquired it via trade. Most of those traded picks are toward the end of Round 1, where contenders dealt the pick in an effort to improve their roster at the trade deadline for a playoff run.

The only lottery pick that’s being made by a team that didn’t originally own it is the No. 14 selection, which the Boston Celtics acquired in a trade with the Memphis Grizzlies.

There is no universal agreement on which player will be selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the No. 1 pick. Georgia guard Anthony Edwards, Memphis center James Wiseman and point guard LaMelo Ball are all options for the T-Wolves, who haven’t selected first overall since 2015 when they drafted Kentucky center Karl-Anthony Towns.
