Schedule for the NBA Draft and the offseason
This year’s draft will occur at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, home of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets. The first round was handled by ABC last year, with the second round being held by ESPN. When June arrives, we may expect more of the same.
NBA free agency usually begins in early July. Dates for the commencement of free agency will be determined later. The COVID-19 epidemic and the late start to the 2020-21 campaign clearly altered the situation last year. However, the NBA will resume its usual schedule in 2022.
Also, there’s this thing called blockbuster trades. They can be agreed upon before the start of free agency, but they won’t be finalized until the start of free agency. This is crucial for the 2022 NBA Draft, as numerous veterans might be traded this summer.
The Summer League in Las Vegas is a great place to go if you want to catch some NBA games and see who has recently entered the league via the draft. It will take place from July 7 to 17 in various locales off and near the Strip. The games are usually broadcast on NBA TV and ESPN throughout the 11-day event.
