2013 NBA Draft schedule and TV info: Kings pick around 5:05 p.m. PT

USA TODAY Sports

It's Draftivus!

The 2013 NBA Draft will begin at 4:30 p.m. PT on Thursday, with the Sacramento Kings scheduled to pick at No. 7 sometime around 5:05 p.m., barring a trade up or down. The Kings also have the No. 36 pick, which should happen right around 7:12 p.m., again, barring a trade. The derby will be shown live on ESPN, with coverage starting at 4. We'll have an open thread beginning at 4, as well. And of course SBNation.com will be covering it from every angle.

There are rumors the Kings are discussing moves, and with a new front office in place and free agency beginning on Monday, that's to be expected. There's a remarkable amount of uncertainty at the top of the draft, though, so we may not hear about deals until the very last minute.

Draft, huzzah!
