Draft day is finally here. After years of evaluating the prospects in this class, the 2022 NBA Draft has arrived with plenty of uncertainty throughout the first round. The Orlando Magic are on the clock at No. 1 overall. The expectation has been that Orlando will select Auburn forward Jabari Smith Jr. with the top pick, but that still hasn’t been confirmed hours before the draft starts.

Before we get to the mock draft, we’re going to reheat all of the draft coverage we’ve done throughout this cycle. Read our top-60 draft board here. Check out our piece on why Duke forward Paolo Banchero is the best player in the class. Here’s our case for why Gonzaga big man Chet Holmgren is our No. 2 overall player. We did a comprehensive scouting report on our No. 3 overall player Jaden Ivey. We also did a scouting report on Shaedon Sharpe, and a feature on the rise and fall of Patrick Baldwin Jr. as a top draft prospect. Oh yeah, we already published a breakdown on the top player in the 2023 NBA Draft, French big man Victor Wembanyama, who might be the best prospect since LeBron.

Here’s our final mock draft. We’ll have news and rumors after the table.

Latest NBA Draft and trade rumors

Here’s the latest rumors regarding the draft. We’ll try to keep this section updated through the day.

The Pelicans are tempted to take Ousmane Dieng at No. 8

ESPN’s Jonathan Givony has Dieng at No. 8 to the Pelicans in his latest mock draft. Dieng reportedly wowed Pelicans brass in a workout, and will earn serious consideration for the pick.

The Kings like Keegan Murray at No. 4, but Jaden Ivey is still in play

Jaden Ivey is widely considered to be a top-four prospect in this class, but Sacramento apparently has its eyes on Iowa forward Keegan Murray. The team reportedly set up a dinner between Murray, Domantas Sabonis, and De’Aaron Fox, per Yahoo’s Chris Haynes. It was previously reported that Kings owner Vivek Ranadive likes Murray, and Ivey doesn’t love his fit in Sacramento.

Jerami Grant traded from Pistons to Trail Blazers

All it cost Portland was Milwaukee’s 2025 first round pick. It feels like a big win for the Blazers to pick-up a two-way veteran wing for such a low price. Meanwhile, Detroit is clearing out cap space to possibly make a run at Deandre Ayton. Read SB Nation’s coverage of the deal below:

The Trail Blazers are offering No. 7 to the Raptors for OG Anunoby

Portland Trail Blazers are in pursuit of Toronto Raptors forward OG Anunoby with the No. 7 pick in Thursday’s draft in play, league sources tell @YahooSports.

— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) June 22, 2022

This is a no-brainer offer for Portland. It would be surprising if Toronto actually accepted it.

The Hawks and Spurs are talking about a Dejounte Murray trade

San Antonio is asking for a “Jrue Holiday-like package” in return for Murray, per Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer. The Bucks traded three first round picks for Holiday in 2020.

Malcolm Brogdon is very available

The Pacers plan to reshape their roster and move towards a rebuild under Rick Carlisle, per @wojespn. Indiana likes multiple prospects in the late-lottery in hopes of adding another pick.

Malcolm Brogdon will be moved, and they may wait to find better offers on Myles Turner.
