The Orlando Magic have been on the clock for 37 days.

Tonight, they finally make the first pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.

It’s widely expected to be Jabari Smith, but that is not set in stone, especially with Chet Holmgren possessing a skill set and wingspan that likely have the Magic brass salivating.

The Magic have already been active on draft day, sending one of their two second-round picks to the Los Angeles Lakers for a future second-round pick and cash.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the draft.
