2022 NBA Draft Prospects 

Post#1 » by Rafly » Wed Jan 12, 2022 5:58 pm

Didn’t see a thread for this yet. So here we go.

We are likely to have a late FRP so feel free to post and talk about your favorite prospects for the Heat.


I’m liking EJ Liddell (OSU) and Wendell Moore (DUKE) atm.

I haven't kept up. Would be okay drafting and stashing another big.

A real point guard for the future would be nice.

I think TyTy might be out of our range by the time the draft swings around. He’s got a good chance of gaining range during the tourney, and this years PG class isn’t very strong - more wing & big heavy.

EJ could be a great pick for us as a stretch PF who looks to be able to shoot the 3 already. Wendell might take a little longer. But both are slightly older, which lowers their ceiling - but that’s okay for us, we’re not looking for an all-star here, just someone who fits the bench needs.

Will take a look at them. I'm vague on every prospect right now.

And you're probably right about Washington. If he keeps it up, he will likely climb out of our range.

I'd be surprised if this pick isn't traded after drafting.

The 2023 pick is the big ball & chain - we need that to convey asap for trade reasons.

I can see a world where we do flip it for a future pick, if only because we have lots of youth already and the future pick will be more valuable as a trade chip.

I can also see the scouting team falling love with a fit player (stretch 4) and taking them.
