Nearing the full reveal of our aggregated big board ahead of this Thursday’s 2022 NBA Draft, we reach the first round.

Here, we’ll find a few listings of players that withdrew ahead of their eligibility deadlines, and I’m leaving them in here for the purpose of making the note that these “would’ve been first rounders” are the returners to watch most closely in their following seasons.

This is also where we start to see a lot of the premiere prospects with Arizona roots:

  • Christian Koloko (University of Arizona in Tucson)
  • MarJon Beauchamp (Dream City Christian in Glendale)
  • Jalen Williams (Perry High in Gilbert)
  • TyTy Washington (Cesar Chavez High in Phoenix and AZ Compass Prep in Chandler)

...the ladder two have already received their invites to the green room on draft night, per ESPN’s Jonathan Givony.

We also see one prospect — EJ Liddell — who’s already been in communication with the Suns, despite their high rating among boards.
