Attendees aim to dress to impress at each year’s draft, and the NBA Draft 2022 did not disappoint in that department.

So what happens during the NBA Draft? When it is a team’s turn to choose their pick, the chosen player will go play for that team. If another team wanted that player, they can potentially trade. If a team’s potential pick is chosen by another team, they go down their list and chose a player that hasn’t been picked yet. Not every player in attendance at the draft will be chosen to play on an NBA team.
