Is it already draft time again?

The Draft is here again. Only days after the Cleveland Cavaliers because NBA doesn't attempt to "own the calendar" like the NFL and attempt to hype up the drafts for months on end. The NBA actually likes to have down time, as a blogger I thank you.

The Rockets don't have a first-round pick this year but I expect that won't stop Daryl Morey from wheeling and dealing. Here is a quick primer before Thursday's festivities.
