We now know Orlando has won the NBA Draft lottery. The NBA Draft combine has started; while the measurements are in, we wanted to get out our NBA Draft big board, ranking the top 30 players in the draft.

This list is different from a mock draft as the mock considers team needs. The big board is a straight ranking of players in a vacuum. Here is how we rank the draft, 1-30, in volume one of our 2022 NBA Draft big board.
