We’re tipping those picked last don;t want to make this public, but hey —just getting to an All-Star game is a win in itself. So don’t be a baby about it.
According to Stein and Draper, no firm date has been set for the 2019 draft, but Jan. 30 and 31 “have emerged as two potential targets for a TNT broadcast.”
