The NBA Draft is tonight. Bill Self is in attendance. Two Kansas Jayhawks are expected to be drafted, looking to join the growing list of Kansas players who are finding success in the league.

All the attention is on Gradey Dick, as he has been projected anywhere from pick 8 (after a trade down by the Houston Rockets in the SI Mock draft) to down in the mid-first round. ESPN analyst Dick Vitale projects Dick to the Orlando Magic at #11. But everyone agrees that he will be a great shooter, and there are plenty of teams looking at creative ways to get into the range of where he is expected to go (much like the increasing interest from the Toronto Raptors).

But Jalen Wilson is also expected to be drafted tonight, with his projections anywhere from the end of the first round all the way down to the middle of the second round.

You can watch the NBA Draft live on ABC/ESPN/ESPN+ tonight at 7pm, but make sure to follow along here as our staff live blogs the event, Complete with insights on how other picks affect the Jayhawks already in the NBA:
