Johnny Davis: 2022 NBA Draft Prospect

2022 NBA Draft Prospect Rankings: Here’s Johnny!

It’s time for an update of our 2022 NBA prospect big board.

Notes:

  • Comps are for play style and role not specifically the same level. 
  • The Thompson Twins will for now be removed until more clarity, after some internal debate that seems more fair. 
  • Pelle Larsson, Tramon Mark, Keyonte Johnson, and Langston Love are not ranked because of the injuries. I will re-evaluate them at a later date.
