The top college and international basketball prospects will see which teams select them on Thursday night with the NBA Draft 2017 edition. Markelle Fultz is considered the top overall pick, but after that, things will start to get interesting. The latest NBA Draft will take place in Brooklyn, New York with two rounds to allow teams to try to improve their rosters. Here are all the latest details for the upcoming NBA Draft 2017 including start time, TV Channel, and how to watch it live streaming online for free.

Latest draft speculation

The Philadelphia Sixers will be the first team on the clock after trading with the Boston Celtics to get the No.

1 pick. They're expected to draft guard Markelle Fultz from Washington, who most analysts believe is the best overall player available.

After that comes the Los Angeles Lakers. The team traded away their point guard D'Angelo Russell just a few days ago to make room for their pick. It's expected that L.A. will add the services of UCLA's Lonzo Ball, a playmaker who can improve others around him.

Since the Boston Celtics traded the No. 1 pick to the Sixers, they took on their No. 3 pick. Analysts believe that Duke's Jayson Tatum is the player that Danny Ainge and the front office want.

At the No. 4 spot will be the Phoenix Suns. The consensus pick seems to be Josh Jackson. However, the team could go in another direction and take a point guard such as Kentucky's De'Aaron Fox or Malik Monk.

That's why the No. 5 pick on in tonight's NBA Draft will be interesting to see. There have been picks made later in drafts that ended up becoming absolute studs in the league, such as Isaiah Thomas who was selected in the second round.
