NBA 2K22 MyTEAM: Next Packs could feature a Dark Matter Paolo Banchero

A brand new set of packs are coming out on June 23, 2022. This time you'll be adding a few rookies to your NBA 2K22 MyTEAM lineup.

From Paolo Banchero to Jabari Smith, ten rookies will be added to the MyTEAM platform via the Next Packs.

Let's check out an early look at the packs and a mock draft for the 2022 Draft.

Next Packs in NBA 2K22 MyTEAM

The Next Packs haven't been officially revealed yet, but we do know that they're on the way. They were first announced via the MyTEAM Twitter account.

Coming on June 23, we should see a group of ten rookies added to NBA 2K22 MyTEAM. Along with that, we'll see "3 young NBA ballers" whatever that means.

NEXT PACKS: You'll see multiple rookies in the Next Packs debuting tomorrow

The tweet specifically said ten rookies, so the entire rookie class won't be added to NBA 2K22 MyTEAM. The way we imagine it is that it'll be the top ten picks.

We figured it'd be a good idea to make our own mock draft to see where these teams end up after the 2022 NBA Draft is completed.

Mock Draft for the NBA Draft

There are a ton of rookies that will bring success to the team that drafts them. However, we have to ask the question of who will end up where?

Paolo Banchero used to lead the odds for the No.1 pick. Still, certain sites have Jabari Smith going off the board first. We'll make our picks for it below.

DRAFT DAY: Who will earn the No.1 pick in the NBA Draft tomorrow?

Now, these picks will likely reflect their NBA 2K22 MyTEAM cards as well so, hopefully, your favorite team gets a great rookie addition.

Here's our 2022 NBA Mock Draft for the top five picks:

  • Orlando Magic - Jaden Ivey (Purdue, G, Sophomore)
  • Oklahoma City Thunder - Jabari Smith (Auburn, PF, Freshman)
  • Houston Rockets - Paolo Banchero (Duke, PF, Freshman)
  • Sacramento Kings - Chet Holmgren (Gonzaga, PF/C, Freshman)
  • Detroit Pistons - Keegan Murray (Iowa, F, Sophomore)

We could be off on our picks, but we imagine that we'll see at least a few cards for these players when the Next Packs are unveiled tomorrow.
