10 wild and potentially league-changing predictions heading into the 2023 NBA Draft. 

After months of speculation and anticipation, the 2023 NBA Draft is practically here. The top is set. We know that Victor Wembanyama is going to be the No. 1 overall pick and that he’s going to be selected by the San Antonio Spurs.

However, after that, everything else is pretty much on the table. But that’s part of the mystery, fun, and intrigue that is surrounding the NBA Draft. It’s what makes it one of the most entertaining nights of the year in professional basketball.

And there has already been one big move to start up the hype heading into NBA Draft week.

The Bradley Beal trade to the Phoenix Suns could set the table for a wild 2023 NBA Draft night

The Bradley Beal saga is not officially over but it has been settled. Beal is going to be traded to the Phoenix Suns in a somewhat surprising move. The Miami Heat and Suns were finalists for Beal and, once again, Phoenix ended up prevailing. It’s their second blockbuster move in the span of a few months – the Suns acquired Kevin Durant roughly four months ago at the NBA Trade Deadline.

The Suns will now head into the thick of the offseason with the ability to flip Deandre Ayton for depth on the roster, or an upgraded supporting cast.

Nevertheless, with NBA Draft week upon us, it’s pretty safe to say that the madness is already here. In adding to the festivities, we explore 10 wild predictions for draft night.
