2022 NBA draft order: Complete picks for the first and second rounds ahead of the lottery

After the completion of the NBA play-in tournament, we now know the 14 lottery-bound teams for the2022 NBA draft.

The top three teams on the board and worst three teams in the league this season — the Houston Rockets, Orlando Magic and Detroit Pistons — each carry 14% odds to secure the No. 1 overall pick into the May 17 draft lottery in Chicago.

The Pistons are looking to win the lottery for the second straight season after drafting Cade Cunningham No. 1 overall in 2021.

The Oklahoma City Thunder, meanwhile, currently own two lottery picks — the second thanks to Friday’s play-in loss by the LA Clippers — and three first-rounders to go along with OKC’s No. 34 pick in the second round.

The Thunder’s two lottery picks carry a 12.5% chance and a 1.5% chance of winning the top pick.

Here’s an updated look at where every draft pick stands right now.
