The 2022 NBA Draft order is now set following the lottery. The Orlando Magic will pick first overall after winning said lottery. They are followed in the top five by the Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings and Detroit Pistons.

With the NBA Draft set to get going on Thursday, June 23, there’s not a lot of time for teams to set their big boards. At the very least, they know where they are going to select.

This year’s iteration of the draft is headlined by a big three of Chet Holmgren, Jabari Smith and Paolo Banchero. But it’s also seen as somewhat of a deep class. Those selecting later in the lottery could pick up some steals.

One team in that of the Oklahoma City Thunder boasts two lottery selections. Another team, the San Antonio Spurs, have three first-round picks. Meanwhile, there’s a total of four organizations that don’t even have a pick in the draft.

It’s going to be interesting to see what they do to get involved when the annual event starts in Brooklyn in late June. We’re also intrigued to see what trades happen during the draft.

Without further ado, let’s check in on the 2022 NBA Draft order as it currently stands. Note that nine first-round picks have already changed hands via previous trades.
