NBA Draft Odds Analysis

Jeremy Sochan: Under 12.5, -140

Among the 10 players listed, Sochan delivers a floor that fits his NBA draft odds quite well. The 6-foot-9 Baylor product could go as high as No. 7 overall to the Portland Trailblazers, yet the rumblings are that general manager Joe Cronin will trade the pick. But per a NBA scout, Sochan likely wouldn’t slide past the Oklahoma City Thunder at No. 12, which represents their second lottery selection.

Whether the Thunder nab Jabari Smith, Chet Holmgren or Paolo Banchero with the second pick in the draft, Sochan’s game isn’t similar to any of those forwards. His defensive versatility is his most attractive asset, and it’d be a bonus if his shooting — from the free-throw line and behind the arc — improves at the next level.

Shaedon Sharpe: Under 7.5, -105

Another name who caught the attention of the scout is the Kentucky “product.” Even though he never played alongside Wildcats center Oscar Tshiebwe last season, the 6-foot-6 wing was the No. 1 prospect in the 2022 class.

Keep in mind, the Detroit Pistons worked out now-Rockets forward Jalen Green, who wasn’t a sure-fire pick in the 2021 NBA Draft because the then-19-year-old lacked a full season of displaying his raw talent. The Pistons possess the No. 5 overall pick and could go with a higher upside player in Sharpe over the likes of Keegan Murray or Jaden Ivey, respectively. The Sacremento Kings may also take a stab at his talents with the fourth selection.
