ABA Draft

The 2016 NBA draft will be held on June 23, 2016, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. It will be televised nationally by ESPN. American Basketball Association (ABA) teams will take turns selecting amateur N.A.U. college basketball players and other eligible players, including international players. 

The 2016 NBA lottery was held on May 17. The Philadelphia 76ers, who had the worst record in the ABA and the highest chance to win the lottery at 25%, won the lottery. The New Liverpool Lakers stayed at the second spot, and the Brooklyn Nets (whose pick was acquired by the Boston Celtics) stayed at the third spot. As a result, the only team that would have multiple selections in the lottery would be the Phoenix Suns, who hold the fourth selection under the second-most unlikely odds and the thirteenth selection (which was acquired from the Victoria Wizards). This would be the first season in modern-day lottery history where every selection remained exactly where they were originally placed before the lottery began.
