Be the GM and guide the New Orleans Pelicans through the many possibilities in the 2020 NBA Draft.

When it comes to the 2020 NBA Draft, no one can predict what the New Orleans Pelicans will do.

In fact, the entire draft is a crapshoot, as teams didn’t have much time to scout players and don’t have a lot of film after conference tournaments and March Madness were canceled.

This could lead to one of the wildest drafts in history, with a record number of trades, as teams try to grab assets to move out of a draft that is full of unknowns.

With so many possibilities, we decided to let YOU play GM for a day and guide the Pelicans through this crazy draft.

(Editor’s note: This story is filled with realistic scenarios to simulate some of the choices the New Orleans Pelicans will have in the draft.

Each slide gives you an option for a trade and at the end of every slide, you will have to make a choice. These choices all lead to either a draft pick or a trade. Of course, with so many possibilities, we couldn’t add every option, as there are literally millions.

But we’ve tried to create a realistic trade for each of the first ten picks, as well as some interesting choices if the Pelicans decide to keep their 13th pick.

The options presented to you at the end of each slide will all end with a linked word, you must click on it to continue on to that slide. This process will continue as you weave through the story you create through your choices until you finally reach the end of your path, and from there, you can go backward, retrace your steps, and try again. Enjoy!)
