After the 2022 NBA Draft Lottery, the Orlando Magic own the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft and face a huge decision that will greatly impact the future of their organization.

This is the third time the Magic will own the first pick in the NBA Draft, as they selected Shaquille O’Neal first overall in 1992 and Dwight Howard first overall in 2004.

While they have gone with two big men before with the top pick, Orlando will have several options in June’s draft, as Jabari Smith Jr. (Auburn), Chet Holmgren (Gonzaga), Paolo Banchero (Duke) and Jaden Ivey (Purdue) are all very deserving of being the first player selected in the 2022 NBA Draft.

No matter who the Magic take first overall, plenty of talent will still be left for the Oklahoma City Thunder (No. 2 overall), Houston Rockets (No. 3 overall), Sacramento Kings (No. 4 overall) and Detroit Pistons (No. 5 overall).

It is also worth noting some of the movement that occurred with some of these lottery picks, none of which came as big surprises.

The Los Angeles Lakers ended up with the No. 8 pick in this year’s draft, meaning that this pick will go to the New Orleans Pelicans stemming from the Anthony Davis trade in 2019. The Los Angeles Clippers ended up with the No. 12 pick in this year’s draft, meaning that this pick will go to the Oklahoma City Thunder due to the Paul George trade from 2019.

Neither Los Angeles team will own a first-round pick unless they trade up for one, but here is the full order of the 2022 NBA Draft, which is set for June 23, including the results from Tuesday’s lottery.
