10. San Antonio Spurs (29-17)
1. Boston Celtics – Return the same team that battled the Heat to seven games. They replace Ray Allen with Jason Terry as their spark off the bench.
The first draft held in the Prudential Center was filled with North Carolina and Kentucky players. 10 players were drafted by both schools with 8 of them going in the first round. The Rockets dominated the first round with 3 picks (Jeremy Lamb, Royce White and Terrence Jones). Now lets take a look at how the first ten picks went down and how the Sixers made out in Newark.
1. New Orleans Hornets- Anthony Davis, C, Kentucky
The Hornets didn’t surprise anyone by going with the best overall player in Davis. Davis will roam the middle in New Orleans being a defensive threat with his length and tremendous shot blocking ability. He will need to bulk up a bit more in order to be able to score on the offensive end at the next level.
