NBA releases latest mock draft ahead of June 23

With the 2022 NBA Draft just a few days away, NBA released a mock draft projecting, which prospects will shine in Brooklyn on June 23. released the consensus mock draft, which is a combination of all the mock drafts around the web.

According to, Jabari Smith Jr. remains the favorite to go first, while Chet Holmgren and Paolo Bancero complete the top-3. Jaden Ivey continues to look like a lock for the No. 4 pick to the Kings.

The Sacramento Kings will have to decide if they’ll go with the better fit or the best talent if they draft Ivey in an already crowded backcourt with De”Aaron Fox and Davion Mitchell. The Kings also consider the possibility of using the pick as a trade chip for a win-now piece.

Assuming Holmgren is off the board at No. 2, that leaves Houston with the easy decision of taking the best player left, which appears to be Duke’s Banchero. At this point, it doesn’t seem likely a player would jump into the top 3 outside of Smith, Holmgren and Banchero.
