NFL teams know their order in the draft months in advance as most everything is set up top at the conclusion of the regular season. NBA teams do not have that luxury. For instance, the San Diego Chargers have known that they’ll pick at the No. 3 spot this Thursday since early January. That’s nearly four months. With the NBA draft lottery not until May 17 and the actual draft not until June 23, teams really don’t have much time – relatively speaking. Nonetheless, mock season is in full swing:
