Jabari Smith Jr. burst onto the scene at Auburn this past season, quickly showing why he was one of the top-rated players in the 2021 recruiting class.

Now, ahead of the 2022 NBA Draft in Brooklyn on Thursday night, Smith is the overwhelming favorite to go No. 1 overall to the Orlando Magic.

What makes Smith such an enticing No. 1 pick? ESPN’s Jonathan Givony explains that Smith’s shooting ability gives him the “highest floor” of any player in the class:

Of course, Smith will need to reach his ceiling, not his floor, if he’s going to live up to comparisons to Kevin Durant.

But, one thing is for sure — Smith’s shot is NBA-ready, and he’ll be able to score plenty of points wherever he ends up.
