Johnny Davis rises up Sports Illustrated’s latest NBA draft board

·1 min read

Arguably no player in college basketball has helped their draft stock more in the opening weeks than Wisconsin wing Johnny Davis.

Through his first nine games played, Davis has put up nearly 21 points per contest, over 6 rebounds per game, and led Wisconsin to an upset tournament win at the Maui Invitational.

Sports Illustrated basketball reporter Jeremy Woo recently released his latest “NBA Draft Big Board,” and has Davis soaring up the charts. Sports Illustrated listed Davis as the No. 5 overall prospect in the 2022 NBA draft, just one spot behind Purdue star Jaden Ivey.

If Davis’ miraculous season continues, the 19-year-old can play his way into the 2022 NBA draft lottery.
