1. Orlando Magic – Chet Holmgren, C, Gonzaga

As one of the bigger names in this 2022 NBA Draft class, the Orlando Magic will select Chet Holmgren with the No. 1 pick. As the team continues to try to build a steady foundation, Holmgren would be an interesting addition.

There’s a chance that Holmgren could be the NBA’s best great unicorn as his potential is limitless and there isn’t much he can’t do on the basketball court. It’s tough to compare him to any current NBA player and I don’t think it would be fair either way.

Holmgren is an interesting prospect that will likely be taken in the top 3. If he impresses during the NCAA Tournament and during pre-draft workouts, there’s a good chance that he ends up being taken No. 1 overall.
