2022 NBA Draft: Latest News and Information

The draft is fast approaching, information is flying around the league, and business negotiations begin to get serious. Tomorrow we will have a full update of the fictitious draft. Until then, here are some notes from all over the NBA, things I’m listening to, and other things to look out for as you go to draft night.

What’s up with the top of the draft?

As far as I know, as of Wednesday morning, Jabari Smith remains the favorite to exit the draw at number 1 in Orlando. Due to the silence that the Magic have successfully projected into the rest of the NBA, this cannot be treated as an absolute certainty, but it has become a strong insight shared by most of the league. Many think Magic boss Jeff Weltman has a soft spot for Chet Holmgren, but most expect Orlando to land on Smith, who for what he’s worth is my highest-rated potential customer and the player I’d take at # 1.
