The 2013 NBA Draft will take place tonight in Brooklyn, NY, we will have wall-to-wall coverage of all the latest rumors, news, and picks.
Major questions still remain. The Cleveland Cavaliers still seem undecided on the #1 pick (at least publicly) between Noel, Len, and Oladipo. Nobody seems to know what the Magic are doing with the #2 selection other than the fact that they are looking to trade.
The 2013 NBA Draft may lack superstar content, but it will likely be a wild night for rumors and trades.

On the other hand Saunders said that anybody is tradable.
“Wilt Chamberlain was traded, guys like Oscar Robertson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar got traded,” he said. “Anyone can be trade for the right price. But [Williams is] not a guy that we’re just out there looking to trade.
“He played well at the end of the year. If he was in the draft right now, he’d be a guy that would be one of the top three players that people would be looking at to draft. He’s only 21 years old. Sometimes you have to let those guys develop a little bit.”
Giving up Williams to trade the No. 9 pick is not viable. - See more at: http://www.prosportsdaily.com/articles/flip-saunders-derrick-williams-is-not-in-play-tonight-256138.html#sthash.JxSYXQfV.dpuf
