2010 NBA Draft, 11th Pick: New Orleans Hornets Select Cole Aldrich, Center From Kansas

Known more for his defense and rebounding than anything, he should provide some of the inside presence for … the Oklahoma City Thunder, which, according to Yahoo! Sports and ESPN, has made a deal with the Hornets for the big man.

Aldrich spent three seasons at Kansas, and scored just 11.3 points per game as a junior. But the blocks jump out at you — all 125 of them last season.

ESPN is reporting the trade as:

Oklahoma City getting Aldrich and Morris Peterson.

New Orleans getting the 18th and 21st overall picks.
