Will Houston trade Paolo Banchero?
The Vegas line shifted drastically earlier this week, waiting for Paolo Banchero to rise to first place. In the absence of a clear general choice, there is much speculation about what Orlando Magic will do when the clock arrives later on Thursday.
Jabari Smith is still the most sensible 1st place for Magic, and if the Houston Rockets worry that the Oklahoma City Thunder will take Banchero 2nd, they will have to make a raise.
The Rockets don’t show their cards, but Banchero praised his training in Houston during media coverage and said he fits well with Jalen Green and Kevin Porter Jr.
It could all be the last-minute smoke from Orlando that entices Houston into a deal and makes the deal sweet when they fall to 3rd place. – Krysten Peek
Jabari Smith: “I’m surprised if I’m not put first”
NEW YORK – The first choice in the 2022 NBA draft belongs to Orlando Magic. And it’s no secret who they’re going to pick up on Thursday night.
“I’ll be surprised if I’m not ranked first,” Jabari Smith Jr., Auburn’s unanimous choice, told Yahoo Sports. “It’s just my competitive nature, mixed with my selflessness and ability to just hit the ball, defend multiple positions and take care of winning. I don’t care about statistics. I feel like I can help every team right away. But I feel like I’m the number 1 choice. – Chris Haynes
Auburn coach Bruce Pearl is confident Jabari Smith will reach 1st and “make Orlando win”
NEW YORK – this day is finally here. If they remain in the selection, all indications are that Magic will choose Auburn Jabari Smith’s general selection No. 1.
Smith, a 6-foot striker, played one season at Auburn and head coach Bruce Pearl knows exactly which player Magic will get when he takes the first choice.
“What makes him No. 1? He’s the best jumper I’ve ever seen in college in over 20 years,” Pearl told Yahoo Sports. “He’s about as ready as one and done when I’ve never seen him and he’ll make Orlando win.” – Krysten Peek
Tari Eason, who could be in this class at Scottie Barnes, sees “definitely comparisons of our games”
NEW YORK – Tari Eason was making a decision last year that would change the trajectory of her career. After a disappointing fresh season in Cincinnati, where he scored just 7.3 points and took 5.9 rebounds in 18 minutes, Eason decided to enter the transition portal and finally landed at LSU.
At the time, Will Wade had sent only three players to the NBA draft (most notably Cam Thomas ranked 27th in Brooklyn Net in 2021), but Eason liked the freedom of the attack and the idea of playing at a new conference.
“There was a learning curve and it was a new team, a new season, a new league and I just adapted to everything,” Eason told Yahoo Sports. “Through it, I just got more comfortable in the game and then things just started to pop up.” – Krysten Peek
Jalen Williams has received a lottery vote
The six-foot-long junior from Santa Clara rose after a strong performance in the NBA draft and secured his first-round selection. After training with a handful of teams, Williams’ stock continues to rise in the draft and it is too late to hear Williams sneak into the lottery, from 8th (New Orleans Pelicans) to 19th (Minnesota Timberwolves). ).
“This process has simply been a blessing,” Williams told Yahoo Sports. “I’m from a smaller school, but basketball is basketball and I feel like I can compete at the highest level and I’m just ready to get to work with whatever team chooses me.” – Krysten Peek
Predicted No. 1 choice for Jabari Smith relaxed 24 hours before the draft
Yahoo Sports caught up with Smith at the host hotel, and Smith was visibly calm and relaxed after the 24-hour drive.
“I feel great and I’m ready for tomorrow,” Smith told Yahoo Sports. “I may not be sleeping tonight, but it’s just because I’m excited for tomorrow.” – Krysten Peek
Report: The Pistons exchange Jerami Grant for the first round selection with Trail Blazers
The Detroit Pistons exchanged 28-year-old winger Jerami Grant for the Portland Trail Blazers’ Milwaukee Bucks 2025 draw for the top four. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Portland and Detroit are said to be exchanging options 36 and 46 in the second round of Thursday’s NBA draft. Blazers returns Pistons’ 2025 second round selection to Detroit. In 2026, Portland also gave the Pistons a better choice than their second-round selection and the New Orleans Pelicans.
Last season, Grant scored an average of 19.2 points (43/36/84), 4.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game in 31.9 minutes for the Pistons last season. He was an integral role player for Denver Nuggets at the time of reaching the final of the 2020 Eastern Conference before looking for more directors with a free agency. The Pistons awarded him a three-year, $ 60 million contract and increased usage in 2020, and he became an All Star candidate. In his first round, Detroit won 43 games in the last two seasons.
Grant is another wing of the many choices Blazers has tried to match around six-time star defender Damian Lillard, and may be the best of them, including Norman Powell, Robert Covington and Gary Trent Jr. , Trevor Ariza, Rodney Hood, Mo Harkless and Al-Farouq Aminu et al.

Las Vegas turns the corner against Paolo Banchero to rise to first place
In the last 24 hours, the Banchero odds on BetMGM’s overall No. 1 have shifted from + 900 to + 200 (Chet Holmgren is now +225). It’s a swing to believe that Orlando Magic is considering Banchero’s No. 1 election (many say it’s a two-way race between Jabari Smith and Chet Holmgren).
Banchero is the most physically prepared of the top three players with a weight of 6 feet 10 and 250 pounds. When Holmgren and Banchero faced each other last November, Banchero seemed to be a better player, scoring 21 points in 30 minutes, taking five rebounds and giving two assists. There was a scout or leader of each NBA team in the building, watching Banchero stand out as the main ball handler and defending with Holmgren.
This fluctuation in Vegas may indicate that Bancher
o did an excellent training in Orlando, where Holmgren played boldly and did not say who he was training for or how that training went.
