Some still shots from video we (@KSTP) have from a story on Jalen Suggs when he was a 6th grader. 5th grader Chet Holmgren part of it. Those two have been so close for years, lots of sleepovers, etc. Now, if Orlando wants to, they can make Jalen and Chet #NBA teammates. So cool. PM

The Magic can field this lineup next season
G: Bol Bol (7’2″)
G: Franz Wagner (6’10″)
F: Jonathan Isaac (6’11″)
F: Mo Bamba (7’0″)
C: Chet Holmgren (7’0″) PM

A Chet Holmgren/Aleksej Pokuševski pairing would be a combined 14 feet tall but just 384 pounds. #Thunder8:36 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
The Magic being in a position to take whichever big man they want out of Chet Holmgren, Jabari Smith or Paolo Banchero, along with having Wendell Carter signed long-term could mean that they move on from Mo Bamba.
Orlando can create up to $28M in cap space, along with #1 pick. – 8:31 PM
Tony Mejia @MejiaDinero
Orlando Magic win No. 1 pick and will get to decide between Paolo Banchero, Jabari Smith & Chet Holmgren. Cue the wingspan jokes but I’d select Banchero or Smith. – 8:29 PM

Everyone ready to watch Chet Holmgren and Aleksej Pokusevski slow down Zion Williamson and Jonas Valanciunas? – 8:27 PM
Tom Haberstroh @tomhaberstroh
Can’t spell Chet Holmgren without “Orlando Magic.” – 8:27 PM
Jeff Goodman @GoodmanHoops
Orlando Magic will get their pick of Jabari Smith, Chet Holmgren, Paolo Banchero, Jaden Ivey, maybe even Shaedon Sharpe in the mix. – 8:26 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Either Chet Holmgren, Jabari Smith Jr or Paolo Banchero will join Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Josh Giddey and Lu Dort, Tre Mann, Poku and the #12 pick in OKC.
Plus a million future 1st round picks.
What a start to a rebuild for the Thunder. – 8:26 PM

Chet Holmgren looks incredibly uncomfortable in a suit. – 8:09 PM

“they need chet holmgren like i need weight watchers”

Chet Holmgren absolutely looks like he’s wearing a suit for the first time ever. – 8:03 PM
David MacKay @DavidMacKayNBA
I know lots of mocks have Chet Holmgren going No. 1, and this isn’t anything against him personally, but dude is 7’0, 195. Guys, even Tayshaun Prince was 212. That’s too much bust potential for me. – 6:37 PM

Gonzaga’s Chet Holmgren has entered the building at the NBA Draft lottery in Chicago. #NBADraftLottery PM

Learn more about @ChetHolmgren off the court before the #NBADraftLottery in @andscape. PM
David Hardisty @clutchfans
Kendrick Perkins (@Kendrick Perkins) on who he would like to see win the lottery: “H-Town! Houston Rockets… I want to see them get another draft pick and build from the ground up.” He would pick Chet Holmgren #1 if he was Houston. – 3:56 PM

Jason Dumas @JDumasReports
I was always pretty high on Chet Holmgren but when I saw him play in person for the first time against USF, I was even more certain.
This writer watched every game of his and specifically pointed to that USF matchup as an example. I think Chet will be special. PM

Jeff Goodman @GoodmanHoops
The NBA Draft Lottery is tonight, and the No. 1 pick isn’t nearly as clear as it has been in the past. Could depend on the team that wins the lottery tonight.
Top 4 guys on the board:
Jabari Smith, Auburn
Chet Holmgren, Gonzaga
Paolo Banchero, Duke
Jaden Ivey, Purdue – 11:31 AM
David Hardisty @clutchfans
If you think Paolo Banchero will go #1, there’s some money to be made in Vegas right now. Current odds for the top pick of the 2022 NBA Draft:
Jabari Smith, Jr. +100
Chet Holmgren +135
Paolo Banchero +420
Jaden Ivey +3500
Shaedon Sharpe +6500 – 8:34 AM
Jorge Sierra @hoopshype
Chet Holmgren is the new No. 1 in our Live Aggregate Mock draft:…5:37 PM
