Worst No. 1 Draft Picks in NBA History

Before Sacramento used its second top-10 selection, Dallas made North Carolina State point guard Dennis Smith the ninth pick.

"But he forgot to fill in the blanks, keeping the generic "(team name)" and "(city)" in the caption.

"When everyone was saying Boston was going to take me No. 1 for sure, even my trainer Keith didn't have any guarantees". Besides, the Trail Blazers were able to keep their final pick in the first round and went on to select Purdue standout Caleb Swanigan to shore up their frontcourt. The Sixers gave up conditional future draft picks for Pasecniks, a 7-1 center, who could be stashed overseas and continue to develop before he is brought over.

In all honesty, the publicity surrounding this whole thing is probably bringing way more attention to Fultz and Tissot than if he did it the right way, so it's all good in the end. Leading his Bruins to an Sweet 16 appearance, Lonzo averaged 14.6 points and 7.0 assists a game. "Anytime you want the ball, just let me know and it's going to be there". Off the court, he is exceedingly loyal to those that believe in him.

The plan is to use Simmons as the primary ball handler and the Sixers wanted a player who could play off the ball on offense and take on the opposing point guard on defense.

The NBA Draft was held last night and the best college basketball players were selected by NBA teams to hopefully, build into a championship-contending organization.

Luke Kennard was the second Duke player selected when the Detroit Pistons took him at No. 12 to improve a team that posted the third-worst 3-point percentage last season.

"I think both Ben and Joel are on course for recovery", Colangelo said Friday. Simmons seemed excited at his shot to run the show until a confluence of events and a trade with Boston for the No. 1 pick that netted Fultz. "And holding a locker room, growing those guys, helping them navigate National Basketball Association life and National Basketball Association games is a very powerful message when it comes from a player".

"Those young guys need nurturing and they need veteran leadership".

IL went up against some of the players selected in the first round of the NBA Draft.

But a wonderful night for freshman wasn't great for all of them. The Source Sports will be tuning to provide full coverage of each pick from each team.
