On Thursday night, basketball fans will watch the NBA Draft 2019 live stream online and televised coverage from Brooklyn, New York.
That’s when Zion Williamson, Ja Morant, RJ Barrett, and many other prospects will have their names called by their new respective teams.
Luckily, with live streaming online and TV viewing available, fans can watch all of the players as they’re drafted throughout the night.
Zion, Morant, Barrett among top picks
As Thursday’s NBA Draft start time arrives, the New Orleans Pelicans are the first team at the top of the order. It’s been known ever since they landed that top pick, that Duke Blue Devils prospect Zion Williamson was projected as first choice.
With the recent Anthony Davis trade, Zion will take over the role of “face of the franchise.”
The soon-to-be No. 1 draft pick was featured on ABC’s Good Morning America Wednesday morning. Williamson appears more than ready to embrace the role that is about to be put on his shoulders.
During his interview segment with Robin Roberts, he was asked about his NBA role models and named some of the all-time best.

Following Williamson, it’s expected that the Memphis Grizzlies will select their new point guard for the future, Ja Morant. The Murray State standout is going to take over now that Memphis traded Mike Conley to the Utah Jazz.
Morant led the NCAA in assists per game, averaging 10 a contest last season. He also brings 24.5 points per game and 5.7 rebounds per game average.
Add in 1.8 steals a game, and Morant seems like the kind of skill player Memphis needs running their offense going forward.
After that, it’s another Duke Blue Devils star as the New Your Knicks are likely to choose RJ Barrett. There’s been plenty of NY Knicks rumors about their No. 3 pick, but right now it appears they’ll stay the course and hopefully draft their next great player.
From there, Vanderbilt’s Darius Garland, Texas Tech’s Jarrett Culver, North Carolina’s Coby White, and Virginia’s DeAndre Hunter will be amongst other potential top 10 choices.
