The ESPN fantasy basketball experts got together for their third mock draft of the 2022-23 NBA season, using a 10-team H2H categories 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.

How high was Tyrese Haliburton drafted? Which stars slipped all the way to Round 5? And how far did Russell Westbrook slide? These are some of the things to key in on.
