It’s hard to keep track of who goes where in a draft as it is, but the number of trades at the 2011 NBA Draft will make it especially difficult if you arrived late to the party and are trying to figure out why the teams in the official results seem out of order. Some interesting trades were made at the draft, featuring several good players changing teams.
The Spurs unloaded the unexpected point guard. The Mavericks grabbed Rudy Fernandez out of nowhere and a three-way deal shifted several lottery selections. You can’t complain about a lack of drama in the NBA Draft — that’s for sure.
