After a five-month delay, the 2020 NBA Draft is finally here, and with it, a chance for the Clippers to add a young contributor to their 2020-21 roster.

Here are the answers to a few questions you may have about the draft.

How can I watch the draft?

When: Wednesday, 4:30 p.m. PT

Channel: ESPN

Streaming: fubo TV, ESPN+

Where is the draft?

The draftees will be joining the broadcast virtually, as they have for the WNBA, NFL, and NHL drafts thus far during the pandemic. Commissioner Adam Silver (and then deputy commissioner Mark Tatum during the second round) will be announcing the picks from the ESPN studio in Bristol, Connecticut.

How many rounds are there?

Two, each with 30 picks.

What picks do the Clippers have?

The Clippers only have their own second-round pick, which is no. 57 overall. It is the first time in franchise history that the Clippers have had this pick, though they previously employed the 57th pick from 2005: Marcin Gortat.

The Clippers don’t have their first-rounder because they traded their pick to the Knicks at the trade deadline in order to acquire Marcus Morris Sr. However, there is a good chance that the Clippers will try to buy their way back into the draft, perhaps early in the second round.

If you have any other questions, let us know in the chat. Enjoy the draft!
