The 2012 NBA Draft goes down tonight and seemingly every player except for Anthony Davis is wondering where he will end up.
The intrigue figures to begin after the Kentucky star pulls on a New Orleans Hornets hat and shakes David Stern's hand. With the Bobcats on the clock at No. 2 (barring a last-minute trade), Davis' college teammate Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could be called with the very next pick. Of course, Florida's Bradley Beal and Kansas' Thomas Robinson are also hoping to be the second player out of the green room.
Trade rumors have been swirling for days around the draft, some of them even involving stars already in the league. The Houston Rockets might be trying to acquire enough picks to package a deal for All-Star Dwight Howard. The Washington Wizards might try to move up to the No. 2 pick, even though the Bobcats are reportedly sifting through a handful of offers.
Will there be any major surprises tonight? Scroll down for live NBA Draft updates and more rumors around the league.
