Full table of the Draft 2022: Paolo Banchero first choice, Ousmane Dieng joins the Thunder!

This Draft 2022 was announced to be undecided and this was the case from the first choice. While Jabari Smith Jr. was the favorite to go to Orlando, it’s finally Paolo Banchero (who hasn’t done any workouts with the Magic) who was called on stage first by Adam Silver! Chet Holmgren followed for Oklahoma City while Jabari Smith Jr, who was convinced not to slip out of the Top 2, ended up in Houston, in 3rd position in this vintage…

The Frenchman Ousmane Dieng was chosen with the 11th choice by the Knicks … but he was transferred in stride by the Thunder, in exchange for several future choices in the first round.

The evening was quite poor in exchanges, only the Knicks actually maneuvering to get rid of Kemba Walker’s contract, while the Sixers put their hand on De’Anthony Melton.

Four French in the Draft

Note that this Draft 2022 has only 58 choices, the Heat and the Bulls having each lost a “pick” in the second round following the “tampering” during the signings of Kyle Lowry and Lonzo Ball.

In addition to Ousmane Dieng, three other French people were finally called up in this 2022 vintage. Moussa Diabaté (LA Clippers) in 43rd position, Ismaël Kamagate (Denver) in 46th position and finally Hugo Besson (Milwaukee), who ends this evening by being called up in 60th spot.
