The 2020 NBA Draft is complete and we now know the order of selection for all 60 picks. The Minnesota Timberwolves hold the number one overall pick, followed by the Golden State Warriors, Charlotte Hornets, Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers. Zion Williamson is widely expected to be the first player off the board, with Ja Morant and RJ Barrett also being in contention for the top spot.
After months of speculation, we finally have some clarity on how this year’s draft will unfold.
The 2020 NBA Draft is complete and we now know the full order of picks for all 60 selections. Here’s a look at how the draft unfolded, with some analysis on each pick.
1. Minnesota Timberwolves – Anthony Edwards, SG
The Timberwolves went with the best player available in Edwards, who should be a nice complement to Karl-Anthony Towns in their young core. He’s an explosive scorer with good size and athleticism, though he will need to improve his outside shooting and decision-making at the next level. 2. Golden State Warriors – James Wiseman, C
Wiseman was widely expected to go No. 1 overall before Edwards’ late surge in the pre-draft process. He’s a raw but talented 7-footer who can run the floor and block shots, though he needs to add strength and polish on both ends of the court. The Warriors hope he can eventually develop into a star alongside Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

What is the Order of the Nba Draft?
The order of the NBA draft is determined by a lottery system. The 14 teams that did not make the playoffs are entered into a drawing, and the team with the worst record has the best chance of getting the first overall pick. The odds decrease incrementally for each team until the 13th-worst team, which has a slim chance of getting the first pick.
After the lottery, the draft order is set in reverse order of regular-season record. So, if you take away all of the playoff teams, last year’s draft would have gone: Phoenix Suns (first), Sacramento Kings (second), Atlanta Hawks (third), Memphis Grizzlies (fourth), Dallas Mavericks (fifth), Orlando Magic (sixth), Chicago Bulls (seventh) Minnesota Timberwolves eighth).
How Many Rounds of Nba Drafts are There?
There are two rounds of NBA drafts. The first round is for players who have completed their college eligibility, while the second round is for players who have not yet completed their college eligibility.
