2012 NBA Draft Recap: Every Team, Every Pick
It may not have been the most talented draft in terms of all-stars, according to some people, however there certainly are many solid NBA players amongst these young prospects.
1 New Orleans Hornets: F Anthony Davis
Obvious pick for New Orleans, Davis will make an immediate impact especially on defense.
2 Charlotte Bobcats: F Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
Great pick by Jordan and the Bobcats, although I thought they would go with Robinson.
3 Washington Wizards: G Bradley Beal
Couldn’t of asked for a better birthday present, he gives the Wizards a much needed shooter.
4 Cleveland Cavaliers: G Dion Waiters
Came as a surprise to some, will give Kyrie some help in the young backcourt.
5 Sacramento Kings: F Thomas Robinson
Didn’t think he would be available at 5, smart option for the Kings. Cousins and Robinson could be a dominant force up front.
6 Portland Trail Blazers: G Damian Lillard
Some thought they should of taken a risk and selected Andre Drummond, but Lillard was the better choice and the top PG in this class.
7 Golden State Warriors: F Harrison Barnes
Barnes will boost the offensive production of the Warriors and play along side Curry and Thompson, the future of Golden State.
8 Toronto Raptors: G Terrence Ross
Exciting player with great athleticism and perimeter shooting. If the Raptors can land Nash, a playoff birth could be a possibility.
9 Detroit Pistons: C Andre Drummond
Could be somewhat of a risk, but Drummond could develop into an elite big man in the NBA.
10 New Orleans Hornets: G Austin Rivers
Provides the Hornets with a good scoring option, though he has to improve on the defensive end.
