Let”s check out the college basketball players expected to shine during the 2022 season without further ado.

 

Chet Holmgren, Gonzaga

In 2021, Chet Holmgren was the no.1 recruit and snagged the title to be the top player. However, in the 195-pound frame, the 7-foot player has to put his weight at the professional level.

As a freshman, Chet has been Gonzaga’s dynamic force. He has a ridiculous range for someone his size and shoots 64% from the field. In addition, he is a 47% three-point shooter. If Orlando triggered Chet, getting a franchise cornerstone to team up with Franz Wagner, Jalen Suggs, and Cole Anthony.

Jabari Smith, Auburn

The 6-foot-10 Jabari Smith is the consensus no.1 prospect in an NBA draft. He has been incredible as a freshman for Auburn, averaging 6.8 rebounds and 15.2 points. He is also shooting at an astonishing 40% from a distance, enhancing his ability to shoot from the outside. For the downtrodden Pistons, Smith would be a slam-dunk selection. Also, teaming up Smith with Saddiq Bey and Cade Cunningham is too good a reality to pass up Troy Weaver, Piston’s general manager. Furthermore, this selection will enable Detroit to trade Jerami Grant and, in the process, add more draft pick assets.

Bennedict Mathurin

With Josh Giddey and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, the Thunder have two building blocks. So, you might be wondering why Sam Presti would want to add another 6-foot-6 to the mix. The answer is simple. Mathurin is even better than SGA playing two-guard spot and Giddey playing the three. In addition, Mathurin is a better shooter averaging 37% three-point and 47% FG in 2021-22.

Paolo Banchero, Duke

Paolo Banchero is another well-rounded prospect for the 2022 session, and there are a few experts who view Paolo as an all-around player. The reason for thinking this is Banchero taking over a lead role for the Duke team as a freshman, where he averaged 8.7 rebounds and 17.0 points on 48% shooting. Some even compare Banchero to a young Kevin Durant. The Rockets can go in several directions with this pick. Currently, Jalen Green is the valid building block on their roster.

AJ Griffin, Duke

AJ Griffin is the son of Adrain Griffin, a former NBAer. AJ came on strong for the Blue Devils, and this 6-foot-6 forward basketball player averaged 14.3 points and 4.5 rebounds on 52% shooting over six games. It even includes his impressive 56% mark from a distance. Can you imagine AJ teaming up with Chris Duarte or Tyrese Haliburton? If this happens, it will give Indiana substantial building blocks. If you add in Myles Turner and Malcolm Brogdon, it would hugely rebuild the team.

Jaden Ivey, Purdue

R.C. Buford, Spurs' front office head, has done a great job in turning Derrick White and Thad Young into several first-round picks in the NBA Draft 2022 season. It enables the rebuilding of Spurs and the availability of their best players at every slot. As a sophomore, Jaden Ivey has been brilliant, and he averaged 17.4 points on 53% shooting. He is an explosive player and can hit the three-point shot with great ease. San Antonio can move Devin Vassel to this traditional three-spot by adding Ivey.

Jaden Duren, Memphis

Sacramento gets a tremendous frontcourt player by acquiring Domantas Sabonis from the Indiana Pacers. However, Sacramento still needs a center because Richaun Home’s future is with California’s capital city. 18-year-old Duren is highly skilled and a fantastic fit with Sabonis. They can see him playing long-term with them. Duren averages 11.3 points and 7.9 rebounds on 64% shooting. He also boasts of a 64% effective field goal mark. Even though he is slightly raw, he can ease into the role of a future starter if the Kings decide to retain Holmes for another season.
