Chet Holmgren Slotted At No. 1 In ESPN's First 2022 NBA Mock Draft 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Dec 29, 2020 9:15 pm

ESPN has Chet Holmgren going No. 1 in its first 2022 NBA Mock Draft. Holmgren is a seven-foot center, who remains undecided for his college pick. Holmgren is believed to be considered Minnesota and Gonzaga, but he'll also be a major priority for the G League Ignite team.


Mike Schmitz writes Holmgren is "the type of shot-blocking, 3-shooting, ballhandling big man the modern NBA covets."


Paolo Banchero, Jabari Smith, Adrian Griffin Jr. and Yannick Nzosa round out the top-5.

He'll be part of the stacked 2023 draft with the best players from the high school classes of 2022 and 2023.
