Jabari Smith selected No.3 by the Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets have selected Auburn’s Jabari Smith with the No.3 pick in the 2022 NBA draft.

Fantasy Impact

Jabari Smith is an elite shooter at 6’10” and a threat to score from anywhere on the court, especially from three-point range where he shot a stellar 42% in college. Combine that with his ability to play lock-down defense and the Rockets were able to get a steal at No.3 in Jabari Smith, who is arguably the most NBA-ready and will be a valuable two-way player.

Paolo Banchero selected No. 1 by the Orlando Magic

The Orlando Magic have selected Paolo Banchero with the No. 1 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.

Fantasy Impact

After seeing the betting odds move several times between Smith Jr. and Paolo Banchero for which player would go No. 1 overall, the Magic have made Bancherothe selection. The standout big averaged 17.2 points and 7.8 rebounds o 47.8% shooting from the field in his lone season at Duke. This 6-10, 250-pound phenom adds great size and defense to a frontcourt with Franz Wagner and Wendell Carter Jr. He should immediately impact the ball on both sides of the court and is likely going to be the highest selected Orlando Magic player in fantasy drafts this offseason due to his ability to generate scoring opportunities.

Jabari Smith expected to go No. 1 overall

It is becoming "increasingly firm" that Jabari Smith will be the No. 1 overall pick for the Orlando Magic.

Fantasy Impact

There hasn't been a clear-cut 1.01 for most of this off-season, but it's getting more and more assured that Smith will go with the first overall pick to Orlando. The Auburn product is a very good prospect, and he will provide an immediate boost to a needy Orlando team, assuming he does go number one overall.

Jabari Smith favorite to be drafted by Orlando Magic

The Orlando Magic “are all but assured” of selecting Jabari Smith Jr. with the No. 1 overall selection in the upcoming NBA draft.

Fantasy Impact

Smith Jr. is seen by many as the most NBA-ready prospect in this year’s draft class and would instantly upgrade a Magic team hoping to return to the postseason built around a young core that would include the former Auburn star.
