The ESPN fantasy basketball experts got together for their second mock draft of the 2022-23 NBA season, using an eight-team H2H points format.

If you're new to fantasy hoops and looking to try it out for the first time, here is a tutorial of all the basics. From there, it's easy to grab a handful of people, set up a draft and have some fun!

Let this mock draft serve as a learning experience and prime example of where players are being selected. This can help you on your way when it's time to draft for real.
