NBA Draft: Meet the biggest talent of this Thursday’s selection NBA

The biggest entry point for players in the NBA, the annual draft, starts this Thursday at 9pm at the Barclays Center in New York without a consensus name for the first position. The favorite to take the stage and win the Orlando Magic Cape is Auburn University winger Jabari Smith. Gonzaga’s Chat Holmgreen and Duke’s Paolo Benchiro are running outside. You follow all the details on in real time.

All three are considered to be the biggest talents of a crop that didn’t have the same impact as the 2021 Rockies, led by Cade Cunningham, Avon Mobley, Jalan Green and Scotty Barnes – named the best rookie of the year. Ended with Holmgreen and Benchero are strong forwards, tall and versatile like Smith, but they can still play as centers in terms of team strategy.

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets have two and three, and potential destinations. It is followed by the Sacramento Kings, Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers. That is, if there is no discussion about picking in the pre-event times and even during the event, there is something common in NBA history. In 2021, for example, Russell Westbrook met with the Lakers on Draft Night in exchange for the 22nd choice.

Rumors have been circulating in Syria, and two exchanges have already taken place. Forward Jeremy Grant left the Detroit Pistons for the Portland Trail Blazers, a deal that included second-round picks this year. Center Christian Wood will wear the Dallas Mavericks jersey, in which the Houston Rockets will host four under-rated players and tonight’s 26th pick.

The 2022 draft will be presented by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and consists of two rounds. First, 30 players are selected, who will be guaranteed contracts with their respective teams. In the second, it would be 30 more, but the Miami Heat and Milwaukee Bucks were fined for violating the free agent negotiation period. Thus, only 28 athletes will be selected. Whether or not they can win contracts with franchisees who own their rights.

The 14 teams that did not make the playoffs last season participated in a lottery (draw) to explain the selection process. With the worst campaign, there was only one chance for the three teams to draw first. Then there were the difficulties as the location of the franchise worsened. The selection of the 16 teams that made it to the post-season is determined by their positions – 30 for the best team, 29 for the second best team, and so on. However, negotiations over the years have changed that.
