2022 NBA Mock Draft

With the playoffs still underway, it might be easy to forget that the 2022 NBA Draft is less than a month away. 

While last year's draft class was impressive, this year's crop of players is expected to have even more talent in star potential. That starts at the top with three potential No. 1 picks in Gonzaga's Chet Holmgren, Duke's Paolo Banchero and Auburn's Jabari Smith. 

Which of these potential superstars will the Orland Magic select with the first pick?
