2011 NBA Draft Results: Nolan Smith Drafted By Blazers With No. 21 Pick

With the No. 21 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the Portland Trail Blazers selected Duke point guard Nolan Smith.

Smith played four years as a scoring guard at Duke, helping the Blue Devils win the 2010 NCAA Championship. His teammate Kyrie Irving -- a player who took over point guard duties as a freshman until a toe injury put Irving on the shelf for much of the season -- went No. 1 to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Smith could be headed to the Denver Nuggets, as a rumor has suggested the Blazers and Nuggets will swap Raymond Felton, Andre Miller and the first-round draft picks.
