2022 Draft Selection Order

The NBA Draft is an annual event where NBA teams select new players for their teams. The first draft took place in 1947 between the first and second seasons of the Basketball Association of America (BAA), which preceded the NBA.

The draft as a phenomenon arose because of a clear sports vertical in the United States: school-college-professional sports. In basketball, the scheme is extremely simple: you are one of the best players in school, you get an athletic scholarship and play in the NCAA, then you enter the NBA draft and find yourself in the strongest basketball league in the world.

On the night of June 23-24, the 2022 draft took place in Brooklyn, New York, where NBA clubs selected new performers for their rosters.

The big favorites to be picked at the Talent Fair were forwards Jabari Smith and Paolo Bankero, center Chet Holmgern and defenseman Jaden Ivey.

As a result, Paolo Banquero was chosen under the first pick of Orlando.

Note that the 2022 NBA draft consisted of 58 picks instead of the usual 60. The reason for this was the fact that Milwaukee and Miami were stripped of second-round picks for violating the tampering rule.

Recall that last year, under the first number in the draft, the Detroit Pistons selected defenseman Cade Cunningham. Jaylen Green left for Houston in second place, and Cleveland-drafted center Evan Mobley was third.
