NBA Draft Recap

In somewhat of surprising move the Cleveland Cavaliers selected Anthony Bennett from UNLV.

1. Cleveland Cavaliers – Anthony Bennett, PF UNLV

Bennett was a surprise at the #1 pick, but was expected to be a lottery pick and instant starter.

2. Orlando Magic – Victor Oladipo, SG Indiana

Oladipo will join Jameer Nelson in the Magic back court.

3. Washington Wizards – Otto Porter, SF Georgetown

Porter is a hometown boy playing for the Hoyas and should make an immediate impact for the Wizards at small forward.

4. Charlotte Bobcats – Cody Zeller, PF Indiana

Zeller is one of the most pro ready big men, but this was still a reach for Jordan and the Bobcats.

5. Phoenix Suns – Alex Len, PF Maryland

Len is somewhat of a project but could turn into a solid power forward for Phoenix.

6. New Orleans Pelicans (Traded to Philadelphia 76ers) – Nerlens Noel, PF/C Kentucky

The Sixers took a chance trading for Noel, who is coming off a torn ACL but is expected to recover by mid season.

11. Philadelphia 76ers – Michael Carter-Williams, PG Syracuse

Carter-Williams will replace Jrue Holiday at point guard, but must improve his shooting and ball control to succeed at the NBA level.
