2011 NBA Draft Order: Knicks 17th, Nets 27th In First Round

The 2011 NBA Draft will be held Thursday night (7 p.m. ET, ESPN) with the New York Knicks holding the 17th pick in the first round and the New Jersey Nets holding pick No. 27. SB Nation New York will have pick-by-pick news and analysis of the moves made by the Knicks and Nets.

The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Draft Lottery and are widely expected to select former Duke point guard Kyrie Irving with the No. 1 selection.

Where Glens Falls native and former BYU scoring machine Jimmer Fredette winds up will be one of the most interesting aspects of the evening. There has, of course, been a great deal of speculation about the high-scoring guard winding up in New York or New Jersey. Former Syracuse big man Rick Jackson could be drafted some time in the second round Thursday night. Former UConn star Kemba Walker, a Bronx native, is a likely lottery pick after leading the Huskies to a national championship.

SB Nation New York has also been following mock drafts for both the Knicks and the Nets.
