Orlando Magic, Smith, Holmgren and Banchero NBA Draft doubts

Talent in abundance and players with infinite potential. That is what abounds in NBA Draft 2022 and what is generating a sea of ​​doubts in Orlando Magic. Those from Florida need to rationally organize their sports process and want to evaluate all possible parameters to make a reasonable and consensual decision among all members of the management. Although it is true that it has been taken for granted for a long time that it will be Jabari Smith Jr the selected one, the meetings they have had with the other two great candidates to be number 1, such as Chet Holmgren and Paolo Bancherothey open many doubts, according to ESPN.

“We can do whatever we want, that’s a big plus.” This is how the Magic’s president of operations expressed himself, aware that they have a lethal weapon in their possession. And it is that the Thunder have repeatedly indicated their desire to have a center like Chet Holmgren, so it would not be unreasonable that if he were selected by Orlando, they could then seek an agreement in the form of a transfer to exchange the picks with some another plus for them. Banchero is also a very attractive player, with an exquisite scoring performance and from which an exciting project could be structured.

Holmgren and Banchero are special players, but Smith defends better

Usually, Smith’s superiority is pointed out based on his defensive performance and athletic ability, although the profiles of his competitors are very special and can mark an era in the NBA. What is clear is that having pick 1 in this NBA Draft 2022 It is a great privilege for the Orlando Magic, who have before them a unique opportunity to revitalize a sports project that has been too dormant.
