Live 2022 NBA Draft updates, results: Tracking, ordering, ratings, trading as Magic take Paolo Banchero to No. 1

After a crazy 2021-22 season, it’s time to turn our full attention to Thursday night’s 2022 NBA Draft. A number of exciting prospects will headline the league’s offseason showpiece event, including Chet Holmgren (Gonzaga), Jabari Smith (Auburn), Paolo Banchero (Duke) and Jaden Ivey (Purdue) . Who will be selected first overall is anyone’s guess, but these four players will all have their names called out early on by NBA commissioner Adam Silver.

The Orlando Magic have the first draft pick for the first time since 2004. After Orlando, the Oklahoma City Thunder picked second place, followed by the Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings and Detroit Pistons to round out the top five. While the order is set, anything can happen during the draft as the teams are busy working the phones to roll and distribute the picks. Several trades have already been made ahead of the draft as the Lakers acquired the Magic’s 35th pick, while the Cavaliers distributed their second round to the Kings. The Portland Trail Blazers too traded their 2025 first-round pick to the Detroit Pistons for Jerami Grant.

It’s going to be a busy night around the NBA, and we’ll have you covered with all the action here. Here’s how to watch Thursday night’s NBA draft.
