Saturday, December 9 2023

Draft day has officially arrived! Later tonight, from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, NBA Commissioner David Silver will officially open up the 2023 NBA draft.

As many as three former Alabama basketball stars could hear their names called. The freshman duo of Brandon Miller and Noah Clowney are both expected to be selected in the first round with Miller potentially being the No. 2 overall selection right behind the French unicorn, Victor Wembanyama.

The third Tide star who could potentially be drafted is sophomore Charles Bedikao, who surprisingly surrendered his remaining college eligibility to remain in the draft. Bediako has a slim chance of being selected in the second round, but most draft experts believe the 7-footer will go undrafted.
