NBA Draft Lottery 2020 Live Stream
The NBA draft lottery is finally here after the coronavirus pandemic nearly derailed the league’s season and delayed draft-related events for months.
Originally scheduled for May, the annual NBA draft lottery will air Thursday night following the conclusion of Game 2 between the Bucks and Magic. NBA deputy commissioner Mark Tatum will announce the results from the league’s offices in Secaucus, N.J., in front of representatives from each team. Here is a complete guide to watching the official 2020 NBA Draft Lottery Live Stream.
