2024 NBA Draft Buzz: The latest movements around the league leading up to the draft

With just over a month left before the destinies of franchises are altered when the 2024 NBA Draft happens on June 26-27 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, teams are hard-pressed on whether or not to keep their picks or trade them for win-now pieces.

Here’s all the buzz around the league so far in anticipation of the big day:

Rockets open to trading no.3 pick for Mikal Bridges

According to reports, the Houston Rockets would be open to trading their 2024 NBA no.3 selection for Brooklyn’s Mikal Bridges. The Rockets have been in a resurgence after being bad for 4 years since James Harden left the team and are now looking for a win-now piece to add to their team.

Led by young stars Alperen Sengun and Jalen Green and fiery coach Ime Udoka, the Rockets finished just outside of the play-in tournament this season. Adding Bridges instead of the third pick in the draft would allow the Rockets to be aggressive in winning next season and then develop the pick for future use.

Pelicans defer this year’s pick to Lakers, choose to swap 2025 1st

The New Orleans Pelicans will defer their pick this year to the Los Angeles Lakers to choose to swap the 2025 pick instead, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The move is seen to be made in anticipation of what’s about to be a weaker draft compared to recent years. The 2025 one, on the other hand, figures to be one of the best and deepest in years.

The Pelicans will keep their 21st pick this year and let the Lakers keep the 17th pick. According to reports, LA is also shopping the pick around to find a player suited around stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Kings willing to part ways with 13th pick, Huerter, Barnes

As they prepare to retool this offseason around stars De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis, the Sacramento Kings are reportedly willing to trade their 13th pick of this year; ‘s draft along with Harrison Barnes and Kevin Huerter. Sacramento “wants to seriously compete” in Fox’s and Sabonis’ prime years as they aggressively hunt for a win-now piece to pair with their two all-stars.
