DraftSite's comments: "Brow down when we come to town. Great feeling since everyone has screwed us in the past. Promising future. Good building block. Will protect the paint for the next decade and then some." - Tony DeVito

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

  • Weight

    185

  • School

    Kentucky

DraftSite's comments: "I'm ecstatic! I thought Cleveland was going to trade to get Beal. Perfect compliment to John Wall. Besides Wall, which everyone knew we were going to pick, this is the first 1st round pick I'm excited about. D.C. loves this pick!" -Kyle Thompson

Brad Beal

  • School

    Florida

  • Date of Birth

    June 28, 1993

DraftSite's comments: "Not happy. Really wanted Bradley Beal or Kidd-Gilchrist. Knew we were screwed when they were picked. Is he really better than Lillard if they really needed a scorer? Not exceedingly happy but give them the benefit of the doubt. Said the same thing about Weeden with the Browns but now I'm happy" -Tom & Jared Rogers

Dion Waiters

  • Country

    United States

  • Height

    6' 3"

  • Weight

    214

  • School

    Syracuse

DraftSite's comments: "An excellent pick! Surprised he didn't go number 2 and fell into our laps at 5. When I saw everyone else was getting picked I said they better pick him. It was no brainer for the Kings. I was going to yell, shout, cry, scream, and kick if they didn't pick Robinson. Expecting big things from the Kings this year. Hopefully the pieces are there to start being contenders in the west." -Steve Cruz

Thomas Robinson

  • Height

  • Weight

    230

  • School

    Kansas

DraftSite's comments: "I love Lillard. He's athletic and can shoot. He was the 2nd best scorer in the NCAA. They needed a point guard and haven't had one since Damon Stoudamire, if you count him as one. He's 6'3" and a big guard. He actually said he wanted to play in Portland. That's tough because you can't normally find a lot of people who want to play there." -James, Portland

Damian Lillard

  • Country

    United States

  • Height

    6' 2"

  • Weight

    185

  • School

    Weber State

DraftSite's comments: "Barnes was way better than the 7th pick in the draft. I think he's the 4th best player. Curse of the Warriors is over. Fact that he is a small forward is perfect because it's exactly what we need. Thank Cleveland for being terrible at taking players." -Lucas

Harrison Barnes

DraftSite's comments: "Shocked that Andre Drummond fell to them. Very excited! Thought he's be taken by Golden State at 7. Great addition to the from court. Paired with Greg Monroe, they should be a force for years to come." -Adam Hertz

Andre Drummond

  • School

    UConn

  • Date of Birth

    August 10, 1993

DraftSite's comments: "I think he's a player that can score. Monty and Dell said before the draft that's what they needed and he's the definition of that. Real excited for the way it's going down in New Orleans. Between these two picks and Gordon, there's a good foundation to build on." -Wade Kreider

Austin Rivers

  • Country

    United States

  • Height

    6' 4"

  • Weight

    175

  • School

    Duke

DraftSite's comments: "Very excited for Meyers Leonard. Didn't expect him to fall. Tallest guy in draft and most athletic big guy. Watched him at the combine and the dude looks like he is going to be really good. I was afraid they were going to take a power forward and move LaMarcus to center. Fulfills what Greg Oden could have been and feel that we are ready to compete after last year's disappointment." -Bill Donlon

DraftSite's comments: "Now that Henson recovered from his injured hand, he'll be swatting shots all over the Central division. Excellent value pick at 14. Wasn't on the Bucks board because they thought he'd be taken by Detroit at 9. Overall pretty happy and pleased with the pick." -Reid Otto

  • Scouting Report

    Offense Strengths • Solid offensive rebounder • Good passer • Runs the court well • Quick first step • Can play with back to basket or face up in post Weaknesses • Lack of strength – hurts post position and finishing at basket • Awkward ball handler – dribbles far away from body Defense Strengths • Great athlete – good jumper, times blocks well; alters shots • Good help defender Weaknesses • Slow reaction time when guarding on perimeter – needs to improve lateral movement • Lack of strength – offensive players back in easily • Needs to be more aggressive Analysis Henson, while not having a great season, did show some flashes during his freshman year to why he was considered one of the best high school players in the country...

DraftSite's comments: "Absolutely despondent. If you are going to draft Harkless, trade down. Not the right value at 15. Need bigs. Stuck in mediocrity, which as we know is purgatory in the NBA. Need to be more creative and make moves." -Noah Marmar
