NBA Draft: All the deals that have happened so far

Everything You Need To Know About The 2019 NBA Draft Everything You Need To Know About The 2019 NBA Draft

In the least surprising news of the day, Duke superstar Zion Williamson was the first name called when the NBA Draft began Thursday night in NY.

Williamson, 18, who is 6ft 7in and 129kg, was named college player of the year after his only season for Duke in which he averaged 22.6 points.

The New York Knicks selected Duke forward R.J. Barrett with the No. 3 pick in the 2019 National Basketball Association draft.

Williamson will step into an open position in New Orleans, which recently agreed to trade All-Star Anthony Davis, the last freshman to win the AP award. The fourth pick is where it gets interesting. "I'm very excited to play in Memphis".

"I don't want to ever be a finished product", Williamson said.

With tears in his eyes, he told draft broadcaster ESPN, "I don't know what to say. She always looked out for the family first before herself". The third overall pick, held by the New York Knicks, is on track for about $16 million over the same period.

Shams Charania of The Athletic tweets that the Hawks have been targeting De'Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish, while Wojnarowski separately adds that Atlanta is pursuing Hunter.

The NBA champion Toronto Raptors entered the night without a pick in the first round. Duke joined Florida in 2007 as the only schools with three Top 10 picks in one draft.

He also said the organization "did not have a lot of concern" that another team would make a trade for Memphis' No. 2 overall pick in order to select Barrett.

The overall record for draft picks from outside the US was set when France had five players selected in 2016. This is the second trade the 24-year-old has been apart of in just seven months as he was a key part of the trade that brought Jimmy Butler to Philadelphia. As a result, second round draft picks are a path to filling out the roster without it impacting the team's cap space on June 30.
