Paulo Banchero is the first pick in the 2022 NBA Draft

Italian-American striker Paolo Panchero has become the first choice of NBA draft 2022, to be selected by the Orlando Magic.

At 19, Banchero is coming off a unique but brilliant college basketball season representing Duke, averaging 17.2 points per game, with 7.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.9 blocks.

Banchero’s No. 1 selection overall by the Magic came as a huge surprise, as it was calculated that he would be placed third by the Houston Rockets. In this way, Orlando secures a prisoner with a height of 2.08 and stands out for his tremendous scoring ability, as well as the versatility that characterizes him in passing the ball and during defense.

On the other hand, some analysts have suggested that Duke’s legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski’s pupil has a lack of physical fitness that should improve in the coming months.
