The Orlando Magic surprised many — both around the league and in NBA betting circles — when they selected Duke freshman Paolo Banchero first overall in the 2022 NBA Draft.
How Tall is Paolo Banchero?
Banchero is listed at 6-foot-10. He joins Jonathan Isaac, Wendell Carter Jr., Mo Bamba, Bol Bol, Franz Wagner, and Moritz Wagner as current Magic players standing 6-foot-10 or taller.

Banchero’s lone college season saw him average 17.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per contest en route to earning First-team All-ACC honors.
The 19-year-old should be a go-to scoring option on a Magic squad desperate for offense (29th in points per game last season). Banchero subsequently enters 2022 as the odds-on-favorite to win Rookie of the Year at +200.
