2022 NBA Draft: how to watch, predictions, trial draft, team order

2022 NBA draft scheduled for tonight, and Florida State Seminole basketball player John Butler Jr. is hoping to hear his name.

Although Butler is not in the top ten, ending a two-year streak (Scotty Barnes, #4 in Toronto Raptors and Patrick Williams, No. 4 in Bulls of Chicago), he was marked as a potential secondround pick after a strong NBA Combine performance.

Its breakdown on NBA.com:

At 7ft 0.75in, with a lean build of 174lbs and a wingspan of 7ft 2.25in in the 2022 NBA draft, Butler is clearly lacking in strength, but he is huge, of good length and quite agile for his size.

• Among the most unique players of his size in college basketball, Butler spent a lot of time playing on the perimeter. Although he played a secondary offensive role, he showed interesting potential as a marksman, the ability to finish the game above the basket and even some fluidity in finishing attacks. Although he is in the early stages of his development, as a shooter he has shown more than most young players of his size, which gives him interesting long-term potential.

• Demonstrating excellent mobility for his height and precise timing as a blocking shot, Butler’s tools played a key role in its protectionstrong impact last season. His lack of strength is a clear factor limiting his plans for the future, and he is still weak.earn nudeaces of the game, but his ability to move hilegs are impressive for 7 feet.

Detroit Bad Boys, our SB nation child siteG Detroit Pistons, also broke Butler’s gamegiving an argument that brings it to Autocity:

If Butler’s measurements were enough to cover his uniqueness and question marks in one beautifully packaged box, throw in Butler’s three-point shot and you’ll better understand that we’re not dealing with a standard second-round prospect. Last season in Florida, Butler shot 39.3% from long range on 2.7 attempts per game. While that may seem like a low number of attempts, Butler had a three-point shooting rate of 50.6%, meaning that just over half of his shots came from downtown.

Oh, and did I also mention that Butler is a freshman? So we have a 7+ foot tall 19 year old who shoots almost 40% out of three and he has another enticing statistic as he also blocks 1.2 shots per game.

His name was not found in the layouts for CBS, Yahoo, Bleacher Report, The Ringer, or The Athletic.

tomahawk nation Michael Rogner and Matt Minnick spoke about Butler’s performance, as well as the prospects for the former Soviet Union’s 2022-2023 roster, in the most recent TN Basketball Pod entry:

Mock Draft News and Notes via NBA.com

FROM 2022 NBA draft as it approaches, the Lottery becomes more and more insular, especially at the top. Since our last review just a few days ago, eight of the 12 layouts have been updated and updated. Jabari Smith still looks like the Magic’s number 1 pick. Ten of the 12 parodies make it a first, with CBS Sports and USA Today being the only exceptions, paying homage to Gonzaga’s big man Chet Holmgren. While this isn’t a full consensus yet, it may change by draft night. (Last year, by the time it was draft night, Cade Cunningham was in first.)

Speaking of Holmgren, 10 out of 12 mocks still have the Thunder, who ranks him at number 2. The lanky center should be off the board by the second spade.

With Holmgren out of the game at number 2, this leaves Houston with an easy decision to take the best remaining player, which appears to be Duke. Paolo Bankero. In 12 of 12 tryout drafts, Banchero now goes to Houston, making him the only completely unanimous pick.

Jayden Ivey continues to look like a castle as the Kings’ fourth pick. Sacramento is in the backcourt with DeAaron Fox and Davion Mitchell, whom they drafted at No. 9 last season, but Ivey may be too good to turn him down. Can Sacramento get the best player available or will they focus on matching their squad?

Another player who sees his name all over the lottery is the Arizona player. Benedict Maturin. He moves up the board to No. 5 with the Pistons (ESPN and The Ringer) and No. 9 with the Hornets (CBS Sports and SB Nation). The talented swingman seems to be a lottery lock as he “receives strong private practice reviews, excels in competitive action, individual practice and interviews everywhere he’s been so far,” according to ESPN’s Jonathan Givoni. number 5 for the Pistons.

There seems to be some mystery surrounding Baylor. Jeremy Sochan, which appears in the lottery in nine of our 12 trial drafts. The talented guard climbs to No. 6 with the Pacers (CBS Sports), most often with the Hornets at No. 15 (three times). Kristen Pick from Yahoo said that Sochan “One of the best pro days during the draft combine and he showed his speed and consistent 3-point shooting – something he struggled with at Baylor.”

One player whose name continues to rise in trial drafts is an Australian. Dyson Daniels, which follows the NBA G League route in the NBA. Daniels, who averaged 11.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game in the G League Ignite, is closely tied with the Trail Blazers at No. 7 (five simulations). Like his Aussie Josh Giddy, who finished sixth overall last season, Daniels is a solid passer who could make an immediate impact in his first season. Jeremy Wu of SI.com calls the 19-year-old “one of the most mature prospects in the lottery and has excelled during the pre-draft process, garnering sympathy from teams in interviews, as well as measuring and shooting well on the combine. ”

Keegan Murray should hear his name at number 6. The 6’8″ Iowa forward appears to be number 4 for the Kings (SI.com and USA Today), fifth or sixth in 10 of 12 tryout drafts, but no lower than 7th places (CBS). Sports).

Nine players participate in the lottery in all 12 layouts we reviewed: Smith, Holmgren, Banchero, Murray, Ivey, Sharp, AJ GriffinMaturin and Johnny Davis.
