The Draft: Everything You Need To Know
The NBA Draft is tomorrow, and Daryl hasn't traded any of our picks yet. He hasn't even sold any!
Team Ricky has been working hard to put together a ton of draft content for you to soak in while you check your notifications for a Harden trade. It's all below.
As soon as the draft is over, we'll have a recap of it from M.O.C., a brand new pod, and a free agency preview from Sixers Adam. And of course, you'll get hit with an email with all of that stuff, along with Zo's draft takes on Thursday morning.
Ricky Draft Week Content
The world-famous Ricky Big Board pod is two hours of love. It's got Spike's YouTube Big Board, Mike's 33-player monster Big Board, and M.O.C.'s Sixers focused Big Board. The boards are also in written form at the link.
Sixers Adam got a few of his draftiest friends together for this monster preview.
We had The Athletic's Sam Vecenie on the pod to talk about Sixers possibilities at #21, LaMelo Ball, and one final argument about Michael Porter Jr. If you're looking to dive in even deeper, Sam did a MONSTER draft guide at The Athletic.
Yes, there's more, but first a word from our sponsor.

More Draft Content
AU took at look back at the most Sixers #2 pick of all-time, Evan Turner. I can't believe it's been 10 years.
M.O.C. went deep on the five players the Sixers should take a hard look at with the #21 pick. Don't want to read? All good, here's a video version of Mike's article, with highlights, no reading required. Thanks to C.J. for putting it together.
Trade moratorium lifted, draft, free-agency all in one week. Thank goodness we have so much cap space and tradeable contracts. It won't be long now.
Be good to each other. It's less stressful.
