For as long as it has existed, the NBA Draft has always been a unique event, held shortly after the end of the season. But from next year, things may change: according to Shams Charania in fact the NBA is reportedly considering splitting the event over two days, one dedicated to the first round and one to the second.
The idea has reportedly already been discussed with various executives and may become a reality in the future. The GMs of the franchises think it would be more efficient to split the event over two days because they would have more time to focus on the first and second rounds, separately.
The concept has been increasingly discussed in recent meetings as team executives believe they could better utilize more time for both first and second rounds. https://t.co/t9Cwt2fJKr
