Experts at ESPN, an American cable sports channel, predict that Polish national team basketball player, Jeremy Sochan, who entered the NBA draft, could be selected at No. 15 by the New Orleans Pelicans. However, he is supposed to be drafted on an exchange basis and go straight to the Charlotte Hornets.
The club from Charlotte is owned by NBA legend and icon of world basketball - Michael Jordan.
According to experts, who base their predictions on the European NCAA league evaluations and conversations with managers and NBA clubs scouts, the Pole has a strong skill set despite his young age. He offers a good defence and assists, he also can play interchangeably in different positions.
The NBA draft will take place on June 23 in New York, but on May 17, three days before Sochan’s 19th birthday, the so-called NBA club lottery will be held to determine the order of teams selecting players. The Polish athlete is already an early entry candidate for the 2022 NBA Draft.
The NBA today announced that 283 players - 247 players from colleges and 36 international players - have filed as early entry candidates for NBA Draft 2022 presented by State Farm.— NBA Communications (@NBAPR) April 27, 2022
