The 2024 NBA Draft is set to get underway Wednesday night at the Barclays Center and, for the first time, it will be a two-day event with the second round airing Thursday night from ESPN’s Seaport District Studios in Manhattan.

The new format will lead to expanded coverage across many platforms, and on Tuesday morning, Yahoo Sports announced that Isis “Ice” Young would be hosting its NBA Draft show.

Yahoo shared the news on Instagram and also noted that Young’s role as host and analyst would be expanding as she’ll continue to cover men’s and women’s basketball on both a collegiate and professional level. Young covered the 2024 Women’s NCAA Tournament for Yahoo as an analyst and also has experience as an analyst with the WNBA’s Connecticut Sun.
