LA Clippers’ 2022 NBA draft position revealed


With their 2022 first-round pick, which is now up for grabs, going to the OKC Thunder, the LA Clippers will only have one draft selection this summer. The NBA announced the draft order Monday afternoon, and the Clippers will pick No. 43 in the 2022 draft. With some late-draft success in recent years, the team will look to find another 2nd-round contributor.

In previous years, the Clippers have found Terance Mann and Brandon Boston Jr. in the 2nd round, two players who would likely both go much higher in a redraft. While the team has had some late draft success in recent years, there have also been some glaring misfires.

Selecting Mfiondu Kabengele in 2019 over players like Jordan Poole, Keldon Johnson and Nicolas Claxton, or selecting Jerome Robinson in 2018 over players like Michael Porter Jr. and Anfernee Simons, the Clippers had very bad first-round misses. While undeniable draft mistakes have been made in recent years, finding a guy like Terance Mann with the 48th pick gives reason to be optimistic that the Clippers could have some success with the 43rd overall pick this summer. .
