After that, the pace should pick up. Competitive Balance Round A is expected to start slightly before 6 p.m. AZT; and its expected that our first pick in that round (which is No. 39 overall) will be at approx. 7:05 p.m. AZT. Our second-round pick (#52) should follow relatively shortly thereafter, at about 7:30pm. Rounds 3-10 are tomorrow, and the later rounds takes place on Saturday.
