WATCH: 2017 NBA draft


UPDATE: This event has ended.

Basketball fans around the world will tune in Thursday night as their teams select future stars -- or busts -- in the 2017 NBA draft.

The excitement started days before the draft when in a major shake-up the Philadelphia 76ers traded up to grab the No. 1 pick from the Boston Celtics in return for their No. 3 pick and a future first-round pick.

Check out the 2017 NBA Draft order:

Most experts predict the Sixers will select Markelle Fultz from the University of Washington as the No. 1 overall pick. The Los Angeles Lakers are expected to take hometown favorite Lonzo Ball as the No. 2 pick. At the No. 3 spot, the Celtics are anticipated to select Duke's Jayson Tatum or Kansas' Josh Jackson.

Even though the first couple picks appear to be set, the selections to follow are anyone's guess.

This year's draft will kick off at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Watch Adrian Wojnarowski and The Vertical team live from Yahoo's NYC Studios in the video player above to follow all the highlights. Coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. ET and the NBA draft begins at 7 p.m. ET.
