NBA draft 2019: Updated pick order leading into Thursday's festivities originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com
From the moment the 2019 NBA Draft lottery concluded on May 14, it was safe to assume the New Orleans Pelicans would end up acquiring the No. 3 overall pick from the Knicks or the No. 4 overall pick from the Lakers for Anthony Davis.
On Saturday, New Orleans and Los Angeles reportedly agreed to a blockbuster trade centering around the All-Star big man. One of the pieces headed to the Pelicans is indeed the No. 4 overall pick.
The trade hasn't officially been completed, and isn't expected to go through until July 6 at the earliest, but we can still update the NBA Draft order knowing that the player taken by the Lakers on Thursday eventually will end up in New Orleans along with Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart.
Also, in case you forgot, the Pelicans own the No. 1 overall pick, which they almost certainly will use to draft Duke star Zion Williamson.
On Wednesday, the Jazz traded for Mike Conley from the Grizzlies and sent back the No. 23 pick to Memphis in return. Hours later, the Milwaukee Bucks reportedly sent the No. 30 pick and Tony Snell to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Jon Leuer, a league source told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Warriors will pick at No. 28 in the first round and No. 58 in the second round. The latest mock drafts have some intriguing options going to Golden State.
As for the Kings, they don't have a first-round pick, but they own the No. 40, No. 47 and No. 60 picks in the second round.
