2012 NBA Draft Results: Festus Ezeli Selected By Warriors With No. 30 Pick

With the No. 30 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Golden State Warriors selected Festus Ezeli from Vanderbilt. That wraps up the first round. The Warriors had gained the pick from the San Antonio Spurs in the Richard Jefferson-Stephen Jackson trade.

Ezeli is a big man, which is what Golden State passed up in taking Harrison Barnes at No. 7 over Andre Drummond. Ezeli will replace Ekpe Udoh, traded to Milwaukee in March, and play behind Andrew Bogut, who has yet to suit up for the Warriors. The Warriors also have Andris Biedrins, David Lee and Jeremy Tyler up front.

Two Vanderbilt players were taken in the first round. John Jenkins went No. 23 to the Atlanta Hawks.
