Welcome to the 2022 NBA Draft chat! Obviously, please respect each other in these conversations. I will be moderating all chats before they are published.

Let's kick things off with a pretty obvious question: Who goes first tonight?
Greg

Hey, what’s the chances the Knicks  still get Ivey or sharpe ?
Alex Kirschenbaum
6:47
They would most likely have to trade into the top 10 even for Sharpe, but they have some future draft equity plus the No. 11 pick that they could certainly offer to some clubs in the top 10. It doesn't seem like Ivey will fall out of the top five.

Rockets trade up to take paolo
Sam

it’s gotta be Jabari smith right?
Greg

Smith

Vegas having Paolo as the favorite before #1 hours before Woj/Shams is legit hilarious
Sillyvan

Ivey

Why do my pacers always make me feel sad?
Alex Kirschenbaum
6:47
They're selecting higher in the draft than they have in decades! Things are looking up!

Chances raps trade og

They could certainly get a solid draft pick for Anunoby.

Bulls are gonna take Josh Minott at 18 if he’s there I think, AK loves athletes with potential

Yo alex do you expect any of these youngsters drafted tonight to make a major impact their first year in the league.
Alex Kirschenbaum
6:52
It seems like the projected top three will get plenty of run, albeit on teams that are probably angling to return to the lottery for what's supposed to be a loaded class in 2023. So that top three will get plenty of stats, but I'm not sure they will impact winning. An older player with a valuable skillset, like Ochai Agbaji out of Kansas (an elite shooter and solid defender), could make a meaningful impact on wins.

have there been any draft day trades

more likely bucks trade up or down tonight?
Schlenk

Seems, I’ve cooled off on potential return for Collins in Sacramento. Where shall I send him?
Sillyvan

Why does morey want to turn the sixers into the harden rockets whilst also giving the lakers a run at having the oldest squad
Matt

Chance next year NBATV is allowed to show Draft live to and at a different site like NFL and NHL is and GM's live to talk about Trades.
Thunder
6:52
I have a wild idea. By the end of the night all 3 of Durant Harden and Westbrook are all back with the Thunder
Andy

Ivey goes no.1

Thanks for doing this, Alex. Over/under on number of trades we see tonight?
Matt

WOJ bold prediction last night lots of Trades tonight.
Celtics fan

Am I the only one that thinks the idea of trading Williams and or Pritchard is a very bad idea
GSW 2021-22 CHAMPS
6:53
Are the Warriors trading their pick?
Alex Kirschenbaum
7:04
They have a significant luxury tax bill already! This is one of the rare situations in my opinion where it might be worth thinking about. It may be worth it for them to trade into the second round for a draft-and-stash player!
Bucks
6:53
Do the bucks keep or trade pick 24
Alex Kirschenbaum
7:03
It would behoove a contending club to keep that kind of player, someone who could be under team control at a good price for at least their first four seasons.
Knicks fan
6:53
Do you think Knicks can trade Randle tonight?
Alex Kirschenbaum
7:02
His contract seems to have negative value for now, so it would have to be attached to some assets.
Matt
6:53
No Recie Davis this year or even using Mike Greenberg.
Celtics Fan
6:53
Any chance of C's moving into the first rd using some of there young bench pieces?
Alex Kirschenbaum
6:54
They certainly have the assets to do so. And Stevens has shown a willingness to trade picks during his short front office tenure.
NBA Fan
6:54
Who will be the steal of the night?
Alex Kirschenbaum
6:55
Tari Eason!
Adam
