Paolo Banchero is the coveted player of the Houston Rockets in the 2022 NBA Draft, and they are reportedly ready to trade to win him.

Banchero, who played for one season at Duke, worked out twice at Rockets (once at Memphis) and was at the team facility. Christian Wood was handed out to the Dallas Mavericks for his first draft. Choose.

A 6'10 forward from Seattle averaged 17.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists with 39 assists at Blue Devils this season.

When the sun rose on Draft Day, the overall # 1 pick was still Orlando Magic's.

ESPN reported earlier Thursday that Auburn's freshman Jabari Smith is still likely to be Orlando's top pick.

Houston entered with a third pick on Thursday, but also owns 17th and 26th ammo that can push them up to the board on Thursday night.

ESPN also reported that the rocket plans to do whatever it takes to pair Banchero with Jalen Green, the first round of 2021 picks.
