2010 NBA Draft, Third Pick: New Jersey Nets Select Georgia Tech's Derrick Favors

Some would say this draft is holding true to form, as the New Jersey Nets, who had the worst record in the league last season, selected Derrick Favors, the freshman out of Georgia Tech. The ACC’s rookie of the year last year averaged 12.4 points per game to go with 2.1 blocks and 8.4 rebounds.

At 6-foot-10 1/2, he adds another long body to the Nets lineup that already features Brook Lopez in the middle (7-0) and Yi Jianlian at one of the forward spots — also 7-0.
