Duke And The NBA Draft: A Paolo Banchero Update

As you probably know, the 2022 NBA Draft order is set and the top three picks will be made by Orlando, Oklahoma City and Houston.

Everyone keeps their cards close at this stage and the gamesmanship is intense. It’s also often pretty cutthroat.

But one thing is clear: The Houston Rockets have some interest in Banchero. They met with him at the draft combine according to multiple sources.

That indicates an interest obviously but nothing more and you can’t be sure he’ll be available at #3. One link below suggests concerns about how he’ll fit with Houston.
