Next week, after the NBA regular season ends on Sunday, I’ll have a new NBA Mock Draft.
And, day by day, we’ll continue updating our all-important list of Who’s In and Who’s Out of the 2022 NBA Draft … which is free for all our readers.
41 CALEB LOVE
6’4”| 195 | Wingspan: 6’10”
Age on draft night: 20.7
2022 Draft Projection: 25-45
Love is one of the top shotmakers in the nation when he’s on, capable of explosive scoring outbursts: He put up 30 against UCLA in the Sweet 16 and another 28 against North Carolina in the Final Four.
However, it’s either feast or famine. Love’s inconsistency and inefficient shooting make him one of the tougher prospects to gauge.
In 39 games, Love averaged 16.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 0.3 blocks and 1.0 steals per 36 minutes and shooting 37.1% from the field and 36.0% from 3.
42 MATTEO SPAGNOLO
6’4”| 185 |
Age on draft night: 19.5
2022 Draft Projection: 30-50
Spagnolo is enjoying a breakout season back in his home country after spending the last three seasons in Real Madrid’s youth academy.
At 6’4”, he has good positional size and offensive creativity, and he’s shooting over 40% from 3 this season.
I scouted him live against Virtus Bologna when he scored 18 points and dished out four assists, outplaying 2020 Golden State Warriors pick Nico Mannion.
In 22 games, Spagnolo is averaging 16.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 0.1 blocks and 1.1 steals per 36 minutes and shooting 44.5% from the field and 45.2% from 3.
