NBA 2022 Draft: Jaden Ivey

Jaden Ivey Draft Preview

Jaden Ivey is one of the most impressive and skilled guards in this year’s draft. As a sophomore for Purdue this season he put up a 17.3 PPG, 4.9 RPG, and 3.1 APG. Many are drawing comparisons to Ja Morant due to Ivey’s atheism. He has a very crafty way of getting to the rim and is able to jam it on defenders with what seems like ease.

Offensively Ivey has already proven himself at the collegiate level but he does need to work on his defense, although many can see this improving under the right coaching staff and surrounded by the right mentors.

Analysts can see a team that needs a shooting guard picking Ivey up. The Indiana Pacers would be a good fit as they haven’t had the best luck with most of their shooting guards leaving them for greener pastures such as Paul George and Oladipo. The Trailblazers would also be a good fit as Portland earlier in the year traded away star shooting guard CJ McCollum to the New Orleans Pelicans.
