How to watch the 2022 NBA draft: Time, TV channel, draft order, more info
After a wild 24 hours in the betting markets, things have apparently settled and Jabari Smith now seems destined to be the No. 1 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft. I do not believe it's what I would do if I were running Orlando's franchise because I'd likely take a big swing on Chet Holmgren, i.e., the prospect I think has the highest upside in this draft. But that doesn't mean taking Smith is ridiculous and/or destined to be a mistake.
And then there is the Sacramento Kings' No. 4 pick, which is being discussed in multiple trade situations. The Indiana Pacers, Portland Trail Blazers, Washington Wizards and New York Knicks have been mentioned as interested parties. While the lottery picks mostly seem obvious, predicting their order is not.
On the eve of the event, most mock drafts have Auburn’s Jabari Smith, Gonzaga’s Chet Holmgren, and Duke’s Paolo Banchero going to the Orlando Magic, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Houston Rockets, respectively. The Sacramento Kings, Detroit Pistons, and Indiana Pacers own the next three selections.
