Jabari Smith Jr. on why he should be the first pick:
“I feel like I can come in right away and make an instant impact with my shooting ability, my ability to play defense and all of it. My ability to guard multiple positions, I feel like, separates me from a lot of people.” pic.twitter.com/SiackX0X7a12:57 PM

More on this storyline

Darren Wolfson: Noteworthy with Smith in today that Minneapolis native and former Minnehaha Academy star Chet Holmgren visits the Orlando Magic, holders of the No. 1 overall pick, next week. Draft is 2 weeks from tonight. #NBA -via Twitter @DWolfsonKSTP / June 9, 2022

Orlando Magic: Chet Holmgren. As I wrote earlier this week, despite recent reporting, it’s not a lock that the Magic select Auburn’s Jabari Smith. The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor recently reported that hissources are “not sold” on the rumors that Orlando has made up its mind, and I still believe Holmgren fits the mold of what the Magic tend to like from prospects. Holmgren, who looks massive even when standing next to NBA legends like David Robinson and Dirk Nowitzki, is a fascinating prospect and I think he will hear his name called with the first pick in the draft. -via For The Win / June 9, 2022

ClutchFans: The Ringer’s @KevinOConnorNBA on Jabari Smith going #1 to Orlando: “I don’t buy that yet personally and most of the people I talk to around the league aren’t sold on that yet either.” -via Twitter @clutchfans / June 5, 2022
