NBA Draft  2022

Some most intriguing teams heading into the 2022 NBA has been Ranked.

Portland Trail Blazers (No. 7 pick)  The Blazers have a lot of work to do to create a contender before the season, and it starts with how they handle the No. 7 pick.

Sacramento Kings (No. 4 pick)  Whether it's selecting a different prospect or trading down, which makes them one of the most intriguing teams in the draft.

Orlando Magic (No. 1 pick)  There are a lot of smokescreens heading into the draft, so we'll probably hear that Orlando is interested in all three of the top guys before Thursday, maybe even Ivey.

New York Knicks (No. 11 pick)  The Knicks would have to include their No. 11 pick in the deal, but they'd also likely have to give up some of their young talents.

Detroit Pistons (No. 5 pick) They could potentially find a team that's infatuated with a prospect like Shaedon Sharpe, one of the more tantalizing players in the draft.

Memphis Grizzlies (No. 22, 29 picks)  Last year the Grizzlies traded up from No. 17 to No. 10 and made a relatively surprising pick with Ziaire Williams. 

Charlotte Hornets (No. 13, 15 picks) Whether it's Indiana or another team that gets involved, the Hornets will be a team to watch as the draft approaches.

Washington Wizards (No. 10 pick)  The Wizards are also intriguing because, like so many other teams, they've reportedly been shopping their pick.
