The 2023 NBA Draft may contain the biggest no-brainer in recent memory — Victor Wembanyana will be the No. 1 pick — but draft day always involves NBA veterans too as trades come fast and furious on draft day.

While it was a foregone conclusion that former Phoenix Suns point guard was being rerouted by the Washington Wizards, his destination on Thursday was a shock, the Golden State Warriors. Paul, a part of the Suns’ Bradley Beal trade from the weekend prior, now joins a backcourt with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

There are plenty of possibilities heading into one of the most active days on the NBA calendar. A handful of trades will occur for draft positioning alone and there will be some players on the move in those deals as well.

Will Damian Lillard, Zion Williamson or others on the current trade rumor mill be actually dealt tonight? How about the Phoenix Suns’ Deandre Ayton? Will any other squads take a big swing for big-name players, draft capital or a veteran?

We’ll have a rundown of every trade as they happen:
