2016 NBA Draft open thread: Maryland basketball’s Diamond Stone, Jake Layman and Robert Carter Jr. wait to hear their names called

This is it, folks.

NCAA Basketball: Maryland at Nebraska Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA Draft is tonight, and three former Maryland basketball players could all hear their names called by by NBA commissioner Adam Silver or his deputy Mark Tatum.

Diamond Stone, Jake Layman and Robert Carter Jr. won’t soon forget this night. While it’s not guaranteed that all of them will be taken, most projections do have them being drafted.

DraftExpress predicts the Lakers will take Stone at No. 32, Carter will go to the Magic at No. 47 and Layman will end up with the Nuggets at No. 53. Rasheed Sulaimon is not projected to be drafted.

The draft will take place at 8 p.m. at the Barclays Center in New York City, and will be televised on ESPN.

We’ve previewed all four Maryland draft prospects. Get all the info you need on them here:

Maryland basketball’s Diamond Stone needs work, but he could score a bunch of NBA points - Testudo Times

The book on Maryland's five-star center-turned NBA prospect.

Jake Layman wants to be Bruce Bowen on defense and Gordon Hayward on offense. Can he? - Testudo Times

Layman needs his versatility to serve him well in the NBA.

Robert Carter Jr. is a likely 2nd-round NBA draft pick after a strong Maryland basketball season - Testudo Times

Carter turned heads when he declared for the draft in April, but he's been a hot prospect ever since.

Rasheed Sulaimon is solid at everything, but he’s not likely to go in the NBA Draft - Testudo Times

He’s a jack of just about every trade, but the NBA might have a few questions.

This is our open thread, so feel free to share your comments all throughout the night.
