The 2021 NBA Draft is set to go down this evening. Players from all across the country and the world are set to head to new destinations as their professional careers in the Association begin.

The Big East figures to have a presence tonight. James Bouknight of the UConn Huskies is expected to be a lottery pick this evening. Should that occur, he’d be the highest-picked Husky since Andre Drummond was selected ninth overall by the Detroit Pistons in 2012.

It will be intriguing to see if any other Big East players hear their names called apart from Bouknight. CBS’ two-round mock draft has Villanova Wildcats power forward Jeremiah Robinson-Earl going to the Memphis Grizzlies at pick #40. Bouknight and JRE are the only two Big East hoopers featured here, so it might be a quiet night for the conference. Still, plenty of eyes and attention will be placed on tonight’s festivities regardless of how many players from this conference get selected. If you’re a basketball fan, you’ll be sure to want to tune in.
