Basketball teams from across the nation will take turns picking college basketball players AND other eligible players tonight — and it’ll be crazy exciting as always! Before you watch commissioner Adam Silver host the always-surprising night, you gotta read our fast facts on the annual sports event!

2014 NBA Draft: Order, Schedule & More To Know About Basketball’s Big Night

Want to brush up on your draft knowledge? You’re in the right place!

1. Here’s The Draft Order For The First Round, First Five

The Cleveland Cavaliers will pick first. They will be followed by: 

2. Milwaukee Bucks

3. Philadelphia 76ers

4. Orlando Magic

5. Utah Jazz 

2. Everyone’s Talking About Andrew Wiggins & Jabari Parker

Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker are the two most buzzed about college players up in the draft this year. Andrew is 19-year-old Canadian player who was the top college recruit last year. He completed a one year stint for the Kansas Jayhawks — and he’s a forward. Jabari is a forward from Duke University — and the son of son of former NBA player Sonny Parker. He was a superstar in his one year at Duke before announcing he’d declare for the draft. 

3. The Lebron James Rumors Will Finally Be Answered Tonight

What will happen to superstar Lebron James? That’s the big question. Since Lebron decided to become a free agent and opt out of his contract, he could end up anywhere! People are buzzing Lebron wants to play side-by-side with fellow superstar Carmelo Anthony. Or maybe Lebron’s old team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, will try and get him back?

4. Speaking Of The Cavaliers — They Have Great Luck

There’s an NBA draft lottery to decide who gets to pick first — and the Cavs have amazing luck! Not only do they get first overall pick this year, but they also had it last year. And this is the third time that has happened in four years!

5. An Injury Has Changed So, So Much

Joel Embiid was sure to be one of the first picks tonight. Then injury after injury kept him down! Joel’s had a sprained knee, a bone contusion, a stress fracture in his back — and just last week he had foot surgery that’s rumored to keep him outta the game for up to six months. Despite how great he is — will teams look past the injuries and pick him?

Will YOU watch the draft tonight, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
