The Orlando Magic hold the first overall pick and will likely be debating between Jabari Smith, Chet Holmgren and Paolo Banchero for the spot. Those three are the consensus top prospects in this class, and the Magic could use any of them. The Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings and Detroit Pistons round out the top five picks.

The San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets each have three picks in the first round, which means they can potentially make big moves during the draft. The Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Clippers headline a list of eight teams without a first-round selection.
