It’s NBA Draft night which means the trades winds will be whirling and deals will be made that alter the future of franchises all over the league. 

Like a tree falling in the forest when no one is around to hear it, is it truly the NBA Draft without an onslaught of trades?

Perhaps more than the fashionable suits and the actual players being drafted, few things are synonymous with the NBA Draft than trades that happen throughout the night of the event. Due to league rules, no trade is actually official until after the draft is concluded, but the safest bet in all of sports is that at least one or two names called at the podium tonight will not be playing for the team making the selection.

The question isn’t if a draft night trade will happen it’s what the impact of it will be?

Charlotte struck a draft night trade in 1996 that sent their first round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for star veteran Vlade Divac. The only problem was that first round pick was Kobe Bryant. In 1998 the Dallas Mavericks traded  Pat Garrity to the Milwaukee Bucks for the rights to Dirk Nowitzki, and in 1987 the Chicago Bulls traded the draft rights of Olden Polynice and a future first-round and a second-round pick to the Sonics for the rights to Scottie Pippen.

All of those trades moved future Hall of Famers to teams they’d help win championships for.

Most recently the Mavericks and Hawks swapped Trae Young and Luka Donicic, moves that carried both teams to Conference Finals appearances within the first few years of making the deal. So the question isn’t whether or not we’ll see a trade tonight it’s how will we be looking back on it in half a decade and beyond?

Lol. That’s the grade. Like, it’s impossible to overstate how absolutely on-brand this is for the Knicks to make a trade for a lottery pick and then trade it away to dump $8 million to clear space for free agency.

Because that worked out so well the last time they tried it.
