2010 NBA Draft, 15th Pick: Milwaukee Bucks Select Larry Sanders, PF/C From VCU

For the second year in a row, a Virginia Commonwealth player goes in the first round of the NBA Draft. Sanders is an athletic shot-blocker who stands at 6-10 but has a 7-5-wingspan that made him a terror in the mid-major Colonial Athletic Association.

Sanders spent three seasons at VCU but hasn’t been a basketball player that long. He showed rapid improvement in college, averaging 14.4 points his final season. He swatted 90 or more shots in each season and grabbed 9.1 rebounds a game last year.

Perhaps unfortunately for him, the Bucks will need him to produce, especially considering last season’s injury to Andrew Bogut. He could be pressed into early service, ready or not.
