Nets Take Derrick Favors Third Overall

After keeping their pick relatively close to the vest, New Jersey selected Derrick Favors, the 6-foot-10 freshman power forward from Georgia Tech.

John Wall was destined to go to the Wizards, the Sixers didn’t try to hide their selection of Evan Turner, so the Nets were the first real wild card in the draft, and they went with last year’s ACC Rookie of the Year.
