Tonight, 60 former college basketball standouts will realize their dreams as NBA franchises handpick the next crop of professional talent. If reports prove true, LSU’s Ben Simmons will become a Philadelphia 76er as the first name on the board, which is expected to be followed by Duke’s Brandon Ingram heading to the new-look Los Angeles Lakers seeking a new identity after Kobe Bryant’s legendary 20-year reign. After that ... all hell likely breaks loose.
