Jalen Duren selected No. 13 by the Charlotte Hornets

The Charlotte Hornets have selected Jalen Duren with the No. 13 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Viewed as the best pure center in the draft, Duren finds himself in an ideal spot. Playing alongside LaMelo Ball, the pair will be viewed as a lob threat duo with shades of Jaylen Brown and Robert Williams. The Memphis standout should play from Day 1 with minimal competition in Plumlee and Harrell.

Jalen Duren hosted by Portland for solo workout

Memphis Tigers Center Jalen Duren attended a solo workout with the Portland Trailblazers - owners of the seventh pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Duren, a one-year attendee at Memphis could step into a large role on a potentially rebuilding team in Portland if drafted by the Blazers. Duren showcased flashes of dynamic play in his year at Memphis, relying on his athleticism at the rim on both sides of the court. The 6'11", 250 pound big-man sports a 7'5" wingspan, which makes him an intimidating rim presence - primarily on the defensive side of the ball, averaging 2.1 blocks per game at Memphis last season. Duren will have to work on refining his post game in the NBA to unlock his potential, but his athletic profile should allow him to land somewhere in the mid-back half of the lottery.
