With college basketball season in the rearview mirror, all eyes are looking forward at the 2022 NBA Draft, which will take place on June 23. Ahead of the draft, ESPN has released a new and updated NBA mock with right around two months remaining before draft night.

The top ten features some familiar faces that have been mocked in the first round for much of the past few months, although Kentucky’s Shaedon Sharpe is a new face after surprisingly entering the NBA Draft this week.

Players still have time to decide whether to remain in the draft or to withdraw and return to school next season. Only players that have not hired an agent can do so, though. But with draft night rapidly approaching, ESPN’s new two-round NBA mock draft still features some intriguing picks.
