Well, the day is finally here.

No more mock drafts, workouts, player interviews or rumor-mongering to pass the time. Tonight, the NBA Draft plays out in Brooklyn, and by the end of the night, some of the top mid-major talent in the country will know where they’re headed.

Although the top few picks are expected to come from the power conferences, there will be plenty of opportunities for mids to get in on the fun. Gonzaga's Domantas Sabonis appears headed for the lottery, while St. Joseph's DeAndre' Bembry shouldn't be far behind, likely hearing his name in the mid-to-late first round. Once the second round starts, watch out for Kay Felder, Pascal Siakam, Joel Bolomboy and more.

As time ticks down to the first pick in Brooklyn, here’s everything you need to know about the draft:
