As team boards finalize today, the 1-2-3 of the NBA Draft is increasingly firm, per sources: Jabari Smith to Orlando, Chet Holmgren to Oklahoma City and Paolo Banchero to Houston.
On the night before Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees are scheduled to face off in an arbitration case and argue over whether he’s worth $21M or $17M, he delivers a walk-off single in a rousing comeback against Houston.
(He’s worth a lot more than both numbers, by the way.)
The Rockets take Jabari Smith with the No. 3 overall pick @brhoops
Building a young core in Houston 🚀
All class from Houston’s legend.
Houston meet your newest Rocket 🤘
Minnesota acquired the pick from Houston via the Christan Wood trade with Dallas, per source. https://t.co/CRWHJIL3pn
Jabari looked PISSED he didn’t go #1. He’s about to come to Houston with a vengeance.
#Rockets get Jabari Smith Jr. (#3), Tari Eason (#17), TyTy Washington (#29), two second-round picks and unloaded Christian Wood 😂
Houston Draft Grade: A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Jabari Smith não fez 1 workout com o Houston Rockets.
Paolo Banchero também não visitou o Orlando Magic.
Welcome to Houston, Jabari! 🚀
The Rockets select @AuburnMBB
’s superstar with the No. 3 overall pick. #NBADraft
As of right now, your 2022-2023 Houston #Rockets 🚀
Kevin Porter Jr.
The Houston Rockets will make the play-ins this year
The Houston Rockets committed felony level grand theft getting Jabari Smith at #3. His game is nowhere near its ceiling and we already know he’s about that work. Orlando and Oklahoma City will look back on this day with a mountain of regret while Jabari lights up the league.
TyTy Washington was selected No. 29 overall by the Grizzlies and traded to the Houston Rockets!
The biggest winners of the draft are by far the Detroit Pistons and the Houston Rockets.
TyTy Washington: “Houston is a pretty fun city, so we're going to make sure Toyota Center is full and going to turn up.” #Rockets

Carl Edwards swept both races at the @NashvilleSuperS
in 2011, taking the @FastenalCompany
Ford to VL in the July race.
The same year, Fastenal introduced their first smartphone app, and launched a new manufacturing location in Houston, TX 🔧
What people don’t know - I was ‘let go’ from Chi and/or picked up by Houston (😉) and this was the first time we played them since that moment. So then, I was subbed in and scored = why the emotion and well = why the cele 🙌🙌🙌 https://t.co/xKrGs0ItFE
Never give up on your team before the season is over.
Unless it’s 2011 and Houston Nutt is the coach.
Here was TyTy Washington just a few minutes ago talking about falling to 29th in the NBA Draft.... as he's heading to the Houston Rockets. @WHAS11
