The NBA has officially confirmed the dates and locations for its three primary draft-related events in 2022. Those events are as follows:
- Draft Combine: Monday, May 16 – Sunday, May 22 in Chicago.
- Draft Lottery: Tuesday, May 17 in Chicago.
- 2022 NBA Draft: Thursday, June 23 in Brooklyn (Barclays Center).
Those dates had already been penciled in on the NBA’s tentative offseason calendar, but given how unpredictable the last couple offseasons have been due to COVID-19, it’s good to have them locked in.
It’s also worth noting that all three events will be held fully in person this year. The draft, lottery, and combine were virtual in 2020, and the 2021 lottery also took place virtually.
