2022 NBA Draft Big Board — 15. Johnny Davis, Wisconsin
Johnny Davis carried a massive offensive burden for Wisconsin, and did so with aplomb. He makes unreal passes and he proved he can make difficult shots from anywhere on the court. That said, he does lean heavily on the mid-range game, with slippery handles, expert footwork, and elite confidence. He also competes hard on defense. He’s not a great athlete and the 3-point shot needs to get more consistent, but the tools for lottery-level success are there.
2022 NBA Draft Big Board — 14. Jalen Williams, Santa Clara
A big playmaker, listed at 6-foot-6 with a 7-foot wingspan, Jalen Williams has all the makings of a productive NBA player. He developed largely outside the public eye at Santa Clara, but his advanced passing reads, controlled offensive maneuvering, and tantalizing scoring bursts make him one of the best all-around prospects on the board. He can defend multiple positions, he can rebound well for his position, and he has flashes of pure on-ball creation.
2022 NBA Draft Big Board — 13. Dyson Daniels, G-League Ignite
At 6-foot-6, Dyson Daniels has the floor game of a point guard in the body of a wing. He’s a daring and inventive passer who always makes the extra pass. He’s probably not the lead ball-handler for his team in the NBA, but he can slice apart rotating defenses with slick drives to the rim. His unselfish approach and two-way abilities make him worthy of lottery consideration.
