Wizards select Johnny Davis with 10th pick in 2022 NBA Draft

2022 NBA Draft Johnny Davis X Team

After only two seasons in the NCAA, Johnny Davis is taking his talents to the NBA. The Washington Wizards selected him 10th overall in the 2022 NBA Draft. He’s one of the top-ranked guards in the class, Davis is a huge acquisition for Washington.

The 6’5 sophomore was a key contributor during his two years with the Wisconsin Badgers, especially this past season. In his sophomore year, Davis led the team in points per game with 19.7 and rebounds per game with 8.2. Davis’ boards average ranked fifth among all players in the Big Ten this year (per CBS Sports). He started in all 31 of the games he played for the Badgers this past season.

Unfortunately, the Badgers weren’t able to win a championship in Davis’ final year. They made it to the second round of the 2022 March Madness Tournament, losing to the Iowa State Cyclones in the Midwest matchup. Davis announced that he was declaring for the 2022 NBA Draft shortly after his team was eliminated from the postseason tournament.

Davis brings a lot of talent to the Wizards with strong capabilities on both sides of the ball. He makes tough shots with his lethal mid-range game and is also regarded as a versatile defender.
