When the 2022 NBA draft was approaching, many pundits had a feeling that the Orlando Magic, the holders of the first pick in the draft, would select Jabari Smith or Chet Holmgren. From most mock drafts, Paolo Banchero was being placed between the No. 2 and No. 3 picks, with the possibility of ending up with the Oklahoma City Thunder or the Houston Rockets.
2023-01-03
Orlando Magic forward Paolo Banchero and Sacramento Kings forward Keegan Murray have been named the Kia Rookies of the Month for December. Banchero has continued to shine during his rookie season with averages of 19.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 4.1 assists in December.

The no. 1 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, Paolo Banchero, revealed his welcome to the NBA moment. In The Old Man podcast with JJ Redick, Banchero said it was facing Kevin Durant.

The Orlando Magic have been labeled as a squad with a lot of talent in recent years, but none of them have star potential and thus couldn't add to the site in the long run. This was not the case this season, as Orlando not only drafted a player of superstar caliber with the no. 1 pick (Paolo Banchero) but also had a relatively balanced squad with many offensive options.
2022-12-06
A definitive answer as to whether Paolo Banchero will play with the Italian NT in the 2023 FIBA World Cup has not been given. However, it seems that the meeting between the player and the Italian National team delegation went well.
2022-12-04
Gianmarco Pozzecco, the head coach of the Italian national team, together with Salvatore Trainotti, the GM of the national team, and other members of the Italian federation, will travel to the USA on Sunday. The mission has a clear goal: meeting Paolo Banchero and convincing him to join the 'Squadra Azzurra' for the upcoming FIBA World Cup. 
2022-11-29
Bol Bol is having a great first season at the Orlando Magic, who are finally giving him big minutes also due to numerous injuries. The 23-year-old Sudanese-American big man is averaging 13.5 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.0 blocks. Banchero, Orlando's leading scorer spoke highly of Bol, comparing him to Victor Wembanyama.
2022-11-25
Despite being only 21, Nico Mannion and the Italian national team have already developed a long-term relationship. Mannion made his debut with the national team in 2018 when he was only 17 years old. No one before him had made his debut with the national team at that age.
2022-11-24
Fingers are crossed in Italy that rising star Paolo Banchero will suit up for the Azzurri next summer at the FIBA Basketball World Cup.
2022-11-15
It was not easy, but in the end, Italy made it. After losing against Spain in overtime, Gianmarco Pozzecco and his team had a chance to qualify for the 2023 World Cup on the road against Georgia. But everyone within the national team staff knew perfectly well that the game in Tbilisi would be full of pitfalls. As predicted, the game against Georgia was highly complex for Italy.
2022-10-31
Paolo Banchero started his NBA career in the best way possible. Since the beginning of the season, the No. 1 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft scored at least 20 points in every single game, and he's already building the reputation of a potential superstar in the league. 
2022-10-27
Paolo Banchero was the no. 1 overall pick in this year's NBA Draft. Coming from an established basketball program at Duke University, the forward had to quickly adjust to being famous. The Orlando Magic star sat down to talk about his experience at the "The Young Person Basketball Podcast with RJ Hampton".
2022-10-21
Paolo Banchero wants to suit up for Italy and has already expressed his intentions to join the national team to his future teammates. Niccolo Mannion, who spoke with the No. 1 NBA draft pick, thinks Banchero is the missing piece to take Italy to the podium.
2022-10-20
In his much-anticipated NBA debut, Orlando Magic's Paolo Banchero joined some elite company. Banchero, the No. 1 pick in the 2022 NBA draft, didn't disappoint in his first NBA game, scoring a game-high 27 points to go along with 9 rebounds and 5 assists as the Magic downed the Pistons, 113–109.
2022-10-17

After reaching the quarterfinals phase at the Olympic Games in 2021 and EuroBasket this year, Italy is now focusing on the FIBA World Cup 2023, which will be hosted by Japan, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Italy's best hope to improve the team is Paolo Banchero, the No. 1 pick in the 2022 NBA draft.
2022-09-24

Every year, the US sports giant ESPN releases its NBA player ranking that lists the Top 100 players in the top basketball league in the world. Composed of over 200 reporters, editors, producers, and analysts, the recipients of the survey are asked to rank players based on their predicted contributions for the upcoming 2022-23 NBA season both quality and quantity-wise.
2022-09-17
Sometimes life can take you to the top and then, in just a couple of days, can really knock you down. That's the essence of many sports, including basketball. It is also a lesson that Italy learned the hard way after their loss in the EuroBasket quarterfinal against France.
2022-08-08
The no. 1 overall pick of the 2022 NBA Draft Paolo Banchero and the Atlanta Hawks new point guard Dejounte Murray both were on the opposing sides of the court last night. Both NBA players appeared in Isaiah Thomas' Zeke-End pro-am tournament where a beef began between the two men.
