For the fourth time in NBA history, the Orlando Magic will have the first pick overall in the 2022 NBA Draft. The Florida franchise were the second worst team last season, but thanks to the lottery they will pick first. Afterwards, they will be followed by the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Houston Rockets. Here you will find the date, start time and how to watch live the NBA Draft in the US.

For this year's draft there are seven teams that won't have first rounds picks, because they traded these picks before. This list includes, the Brooklyn Nets, the Phoenix Suns, the Los Angeles Lakers, the Boston Celtics, the Toronto Raptors, the Utah Jazz and the Los Angeles Clippers. In fact, the draft will feature 58 picks overall.

This unsual number of picks is because the Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat lost their picks due to issues regarding two traded players in the recent past. This is the first time since 2004 that the draft will have less than the usual 60 picks
