The NBA draft consists of two rounds, with each round having 30 picks.
This means that 60 players are selected each year.
However, not all teams use their picks. They may choose to trade them or pass on selecting a player altogether.
The draft typically takes place in late June, during the NBA offseason.
Each team gets one pick per round
However, sometimes a team will pick more than once in a round or not at all.
This is because teams can trade draft picks for players, for money, or for other draft picks.
No player may sign with the NBA until they have been eligible for at least one draft. Since 2006, high school players must wait one year after graduating and be at least 19 years old by the end of the draft year.
