How many picks are in the NBA Draft 2022?
The Losers are teams that have no chance at winning their respective drafts. The Chicago Bulls come into this year’s draft with only one player who can play point guard (Kris Dunn). They also don’t own any future first round picks. By trading Jimmy Butler, they traded away two lottery picks in the near future. They do still get some young talent from other trades but not enough to make up for three first round picks in five years.
Who was the first pick in the NBA 2022?
2022 NBA Draft Pick 1 | Paolo Banchero · 2022 NBA Draft Pick 2 | Chet Holmgren · 2022 NBA Draft Pick 3 | Jabari Smith · 2022 NBA Draft Pick 4
The Sixers were able to trade down from 13 to 16. This allowed them to swap out a pick for Sacramento Kings pick plus cash considerations. With this move, the 76ers became the third team in history to jump from 15th to 4th place. In addition, they got back a future first-round pick from Phoenix Suns which should increase their chances of getting Markelle Fultz. If he falls to No. 5, the Sixers will likely take him over Markelle Fultz, Jayson Tatum, or De’Aaron Fox.
Loser: New York Knicks
New York did well to move up to 10. However, the Knicks now find themselves at 8th overall. They won’t have a shot at any of the top tier players and will probably try and land a serviceable backup center.
