In 2017, 14 trades were made on draft day. Fourteen .

While last year's figure may be hard to top, the 2018 draft could see big names on the move as contending teams look to retool in order to compete with the back-to-back champion Golden State Warriors.

The first move was made ahead of the draft when the Brooklyn Nets acquired Dwight Howard from the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday. The Nets are reportedly negotiating a contract buyout that will make Howard a free agent this offseason.
