How to Watch the 2016 NBA Draft

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Utah has a likely lottery pick in today's NBA Draft in center Jakob Poeltl. If you want to tune in to see where Poeltl goes, read below to find out how. He is expected to go between picks No. 9 thru No. 11. The likely first pick is LSU forward/center Ben Simmons, who many expect the Philadelphia 76ers to draft with the first pick of the draft. Duke's Brandon Ingram will likely go No. 2 to the Los Angeles Lakers (provided Simmons goes No. 1). The Boston Celtics are a team that could really shake up the draft at No. 3. There has been a lot of talk that they want to trade the pick for a veteran star player. The hometown Utah Jazz traded away their No. 12 pick to Atlanta, so they will not be selecting in the first round (barring a trade to move up).
