The players in today’s draft were selected from a pool of 102 draftees that were chosen by the league after an extensive tryout process that began in January 2018. Each team had to use their first five selections to select a point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward and center (in any order they chose) before using their final pick to select a player from any position.
