How to watch 2022 NBA Draft prospect Jaden Hardy and G League Ignite: Roster, stats, schedule

The G League Ignite development program has kicked off its second season after a successful inaugural year.

In the Ignite's debut season in 2020-21, they saw two prospects drafted in the top-10 in the 2021 NBA Draft in No. 2 overall pick Jalen Green and No. 7 overall pick Jonathan Kuminga.

This year, the Ignite are once again loaded up with potential future NBA prospects, including players like Jaden Hardy, Michael Foster, Dyson Daniels and MarJon Beauchamp, to name a few.

On my preseason 2022 NBA Mock Draft for Sporting News, I had Hardy ranked the highest of the bunch as the No. 4 overall prospect.

The 6-foot-4, 185-pound guard is bursty with elite shot creation skills, flashing an ability to score from all three levels. He's also a capable playmaker, making him one of the most well-rounded offensive threats in his class.

Hardy got out to a tough start in his Ignite campaign, shooting 2-for-15 from the field and 0-for-5 from 3-point range, but he bounced back in his second contest. The 19-year-old went for 24 points, seven rebounds, four steals and two assists in the next game, looking to continue to build his draft stock throughout the season.

I also had Daniels ranked as the 14th-best prospect and Foster as the 24th-best prospect in their class ahead of the start of the season. While Beauchamp didn't crack the first round in my first Mock Draft, the 6-foot-6 wing is already building a strong case as a prospect with an impressive start to the Ignite's season.
