The 2022 NBA Draft takes place on June 23, and it will be a cannot miss event for all NBA fans. The Orlando Magic have the top selection and are rumored to be choosing between Jabari Smith and Chet Holmgren. It feels like Paolo Banchero will round out the top three with plenty of drama about what Sacramento does at four.

The Dallas Mavericks shook up the order on June 15 as they traded four players and the 26th overall pick to Houston to acquire Christian Wood. The Rockets now have three first-round picks, and the Mavs do not own a selection in the 2022 draft as they traded their second-round pick to Washington at the deadline.

How did the two offseason trades shake up the draft order? Fans can see all 58 picks below.

57. Portland Trail Blazers (via Memphis Grizzlies)

58. Indiana Pacers (via Phoenix Suns)

The Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat were forced to forfeit their second-round picks because of tampering violations, which leaves just 58 selections in Thursday’s draft.

Fans should not expect the Dallas Mavericks to make a selection. They could buy a second-round pick, but that is unlikely given their roster situation and impending luxury tax bill.

General manager and president of basketball operations Nico Harrison will be working the phones on draft night, and the Mavs will technically make the 26th pick because they are unable to trade it until after draft night because of the Stepien Rule. Fans should tune in for the league-altering evening and enjoy the show.
