The NBA Draft will be presented at 8 p.m. on RDS Info and RDS Direct. The event will also be shown on RDS2 after the Memorial Cup match ends, as well as a free online broadcast.

The Orlando Magic surprised some observers Thursday night by announcing that Paulo Panchero is first overall in the NBA draft.

The Charlotte Hornets switched to Chet Holmgren with the second overall selection. Smith Jr. was eventually selected by the Houston Rockets, with the third overall selection.

Banchero, a producer from Duke University, seemed surprised when his selection was announced.

“I don’t even know what to say,” Banchero told ESPN moments after he was chosen. “I can’t believe what just happened. Honestly.”

A 6-foot-10 striker, Banchero helped Duke reach the Final Four during coach Mike Krzyzewski’s final season. He averaged 17.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 3.2 assists in his only season with the Blue Devils.

The Magic, who scored 22-60, scored the second-worst record in the league in 2021-22. They have missed the playoffs in the past two seasons.

Join the Young Magic formation, which last year decided to rebuild and separate from veterans Nikola Vucevich, Aaron Gordon and Ivan Fournier.

He will bring them his size and physical density as well as outside shot, rebound and pass quality above average.

“I want to win and get Orlando back to the playoffs,” the former No. 5 Duke said.

The grandson of Italian national Paolo Panchero, who was born in the United States, obtained citizenship in 2020 and indicated that he wanted to wear the colors of the Italian national team.

Holmgren slips with Thunder, Smith Jr. To third place overall

Earlier in the day, it was let to know that Auburn University’s Jabari Smith Jr. is the “preferred candidate” to be elected from the Florida team.

While Banchero surprised everyone by being the first pick, Holmgren was still expected to go to Oklahoma City with the second pick. The 7-foot-tall Gonzaga’s Holmgren demonstrated a wide range of skill in his only season in college, averaging 14.1 points on 60 percent of shots and 39 percent shooting 3-pointers for all, while collecting 9.9 rebounds and stopping 3.7 shots on 26.9 Minutes on 32 games.

Smith, 19, averaged 16.9 points and 7.4 rebounds in his only season at Auburn, shooting 43% from the field and 42% from a 3-point range. Against teams ranked in the top 25 ofNews agency When they faced Auburn, Smith averaged 20.8 points and 6.4 rebounds.

It’s the fourth time Orlando has taken first place. The Magic Shaquille picked O’Neal with the #1 pick in 1992. Chris Webber was the #1 pick in Orlando in 1993, traded the same night to Penny Hardaway and a host of future picks eventually turned over to Vince Carter and later, Mike Miller. And in 2004, Magic picked Dwight Howard with the first selection.

Banchereau joins a young Orlando core that already includes Markel Fultz, the first pick of 2017, two of the first eight picks in the 2021 draft, Franz Wagner and Jalen Suggs, and Cole Anthony, the 15th pick in the 2020 draft.

Benedict Mathurin was named sixth overall by the Indiana Pacers. Mathurin thus becomes the first Quebec drafted in NBA history. Mathurin, a 6’6″, 210-pound athlete recently invited to train under the eyes of the Pistons, Pacers and Trail Blazers, shone last year in his second season with the Edmonton Wildcats. University of Arizona at the NCAA.

Another Canadian was drafted right after Mathurin, Sheldon Sharp of Kentucky, Ontario, by the Portland Trail Blazers.

At the start of last season, there were 18 players from Canada in the NBA – a high number for players born outside the United States, for the eighth consecutive year.

AJ Griffin (Duke) was drafted at number 16 by the Hawks. He is the son of Raptors assistant coach Adrian Griffin who played nine seasons in the NBA.

Toronto drafts teammate Mathurin

The Toronto Raptors set their sights on Christian Colocco with their only selection from the 2022 draft on Thursday.

The seven-foot-tall center played for the University of Arizona, particularly with Benedict Mathurin.

The Cameroonian was selected by the third selection of the second round of replay, ranked 33.

He was named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, Most Improved Player and earned a spot on the first team for the Pac-12 division.

The Raptors secured the selection on February 10 through a commercial deal with the San Antonio Spurs.

Drew Eubanks, Thaddeus Young and the second-round pick, originally from the Detroit Pistons, were traded to the Raptors for Goran Dragic’s services and the first-round pick at the 2022 auction.
