NBA Draft First Round Order, Start Time

The 2015 NBA Draft takes place live tonight from the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, New York. The 2015 NBA Draft First Round Order is listed below and the NBA Draft Start Time is set for a 7:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on ESPN.

The Minnesota Timberwolves will be drafting first in tonight's NBA Draft, they're expected to take Karl-Anthony Towns out of Kentucky with that selection. Both Towns and Duke big man Jahlil Okafor seem like absolute can't-miss youngsters and Minnesota has the best option by getting to take the first selection in the draft.

While many teams are still looking to keep their options open going into the draft, the big trade hasn't happened yet. There have been several small moves between teams and some decent ones as well, but there could be some bold moves tonight.

The New York Knicks seem to want to move out of the fourth spot and who knows what the Philadelphia 76ers are going to do. They've been logging all kinds of draft selections the past handful of seasons and have six selections tonight, five of which are in the second round. Philadelphia is bound to get a nice talent piece for their team at the third spot, but will they look to package things together and move up into the First Round with their multitude of options from the Second?

Typically Second Round selections tend to be role players and don't turn out to be stars. Many teams like to stockpile bodies and often times move them overseas. Second Round picks don't get guaranteed contracts in the NBA, making it difficult for those players to make teams.
