After a wild 2021-22 season, it's time to shift our full attention to Thursday night's 2022 NBA Draft. A number of exciting prospects will headline the league's marquee offseason event, including Chet Holmgren (Gonzaga), Jabari Smith (Auburn), Paolo Banchero (Duke) and Jaden Ivey (Purdue). Who will be selected first overall remains anyone's guess, but those four players will all hear their names called early on by NBA commissioner Adam Silver.


The Orlando Magic have the top overall pick in the draft for the first time since 2004. After Orlando, the Oklahoma City Thunder pick second, followed by the Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings and Detroit Pistons to round out the top five. While the order is set, anything can happen during the draft as teams are busy working the phones to wheel and deal picks. Multiple trades have already been made before the draft as the Lakers acquired the Magic's 35th pick, while the Cavaliers dealt their second-rounder to the Kings. The Portland Trail Blazers also traded their 2025 first-round pick to the Detroit Pistons for Jerami Grant.


It'll be a busy night around the NBA, and we'll have you covered with all the action right here. Here's how to watch Thursday night's NBA Draft.


The 2022 NBA draft has nearly arrived, and the speculation is only beginning. There will be plenty of storylines at issue from the outset of Thursday's event at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (8 p.m. ET, ESPN, ABC and ESPN App) -- will the Big Three of Auburn's Jabari Smith, Gonzaga's Chet Holmgren and Duke's Paolo Banchero go in the order expected, and to the teams expected? If it's Smith to the Orlando Magic at No. 1, Holmgren to the Oklahoma City Thunder at No. 2 and Banchero to the Houston Rockets at No. 3, what might that mean for the Sacramento Kings at No. 4? Will the Kings, who must factor in the likelihood of their pick signing with the struggling franchise, strike a draft-night deal? If they do, how will the rest of the night's dominoes fall?


As we consider those questions, ESPN will be tracking every twist and turn until the first name is announced at the Barclays Center podium Thursday, with this version of the mock draft undergoing any and all necessary alterations up until draft time, based on ESPN's latest intel and any first- or second-round moves up until that hour:
