BROOKLYN, NY (WTVB) - The Detroit Pistons selected point guard Spencer Dinwiddie out of Colorado with the 38th pick in the NBA Draft last night. His junior season with Colorado ended in January after he had surgery to repair an ACL tear in his knee. Detroit general manager Jeff Bower said Dinwiddie has outstanding size for the point guard position and a good feel for moving the ball. The state of Michigan was well represented in the draft as the University of Michigan saw Nik Stauskas and Mitch McGary taken in the first round, while Glenn Robinson the third was selected in the second round and Michigan State's Adreian Payne and Garry Harris were taken in the first round as well.
Andrew Wiggins is the number-one pick in this year's NBA Draft. The Cleveland Cavaliers selected the forward out of Kansas with the first selection. It's the second straight year and third in the last four the Cavs have had the top pick. Duke guard Jabari Parker went second overall to the Milwaukee Bucks, while the Philadelphia 76ers selected Kansas center Joel Embiid at number-three. Embiid had been projected to go first overall until recent surgery for a stress fracture in his foot. The Orlando Magic selected Arizona forward Aaron Gordon fourth, while the Utah Jazz took Australian guard Dante Exum with the fifth pick.
