The only sure thing in the 2023 NBA draft is that 7-foot-4-inch French sensation Victor Wembanyama will be the top overall pick and begin his NBA career in San Antonio. It gets murky after that. Will forward Brandon Miller from Alabama or guard Scoot Henderson from the G League be the next pick? Where will twins Amen and Ausar Thompson from the Overtime Elite league end up? Will we see draft-day trades that put Zion Williamson or Damian Lillard on the move? Answers are forthcoming.
The NBA draft begins tonight at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) on ABC and ESPN. Here’s how you can watch all the picks without cable wherever you are in the world.
Livestream the draft in the US
You can livestream the draft on WatchESPN.com or the WatchESPN app, but you will need to prove you have a TV subscription that includes ESPN or an ESPN Plus account. If you don’t have a cable or satellite TV subscription, you can watch the NBA Draft with a live TV streaming service. All five of the major services offer ABC and ESPN.
Alternatively, if you live in an area with good reception, you can watch the first round of the draft on ABC on over-the-air broadcast channels just by attaching an affordable (under $30) indoor antenna to nearly any TV.
