Here’s a quick look at the players selected in the first round of Thursday’s NBA Draft in New York.


No. 1 -- Cleveland Cavaliers -- Anthony Bennett, 6-7, 239, Nevada Las Vegas, power forward
Surprise! Bennett is a relative unknown after playing one unspectacular season at UNLV, but he is a superior athlete who has enough upside to be a legit No. 1 pick.

No. 2 -- Orlando Magic -- Victor Oladipo, 6-4, 213, Indiana, shooting guard
With the second pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, the Orlando Magic selected Victor Oladipo out of Indiana.

No. 3 -- Washington Wizards -- Otto Porter Jr., 6-9, 198, Georgetown, small forward
The Wizards go across town to pick up the Georgetown product. While Porter lacks the upside of some of the other potential picks at this slot (say, Noel or McLemore), his jump-shooting ability and defensive prowess should allow him to immediately slide into the Wizards' starting lineup. Playing alongside John Wall and Bradley Beal should partially alleviate concerns about his passivity, as he won’t be asked to carry the scoring load. It’s the ideal situation for Porter.

No. 4 -- Charlotte Bobcats -- Cody Zeller, 7-0, 230, Indiana, power forward/center
Zeller averaged 16.5 points and 8.1 rebounds, including 10 double-doubles. Scouts say that Zeller does many things well, but does not excel in any one area.

No. 5 -- Phoenix Suns -- Alex Len, 7-1, 250, Maryland, center
In his second season with the Terrapins, Len averaged 11.9 points and 7.8 rebounds and 2.1 blocks a game, including a 20-point, eight-rebound season-ending performance against North Carolina.

No. 6 -- New Orleans Pelicans -- Nerlens Noel, 6-11, 206, Kentucky, power forward
Noel arguably has the highest upside of any player in this draft. A pure shot-blocker and impressive leaper, he has the size, timing and talent to be a top-tier NBA big man — if he stays healthy. His offensive game is relatively raw: he averaged 10.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 4.4 blocks in 24 games before tearing his left ACL in February.

No. 7 -- Sacramento Kings -- Ben McLemore, 6-5, SG, Kansas
With the addition of McLemore, the Kings get one of the top talents in the draft at a spot where they never thought he would be. McLemore is a player who can and will come in and contribute right away.

No. 8 -- Detroit Pistons -- Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, 6-6, SG, Georgia
Despite playing with the worst supporting cast of any lottery pick, Caldwell-Pope made tremendous strides during his sophomore year, boosting his averages to 18.5 points and a terrific 7.1 rebounds.

No. 9 -- Minnesota Timberwolves -- Trey Burke, 6-1, PG, Michigan
The national player of the year was traded to the Jazz. He'll immediately fill Utah's backcourt needs. His size is an issue, but if he can overcome that he's got the tools to be a successful PG.

No. 10 -- Portland Trail Blazers -- CJ McCollum, 6-3, PG/SG, Lehigh
McCollum is your classic combo guard who is used to playing with the ball in his hands but has also shown the ability to play off the ball.

No. 11 -- Philadelphia 76Ers -- Michael Carter-Williams, 6-6, PG, Syracuse
No. 12 -- Oklahoma City Thunder -- Steven Adams, 7-0, C, Pittsburgh
No. 13 -- Boston Celtics(from Dallas) -- Kelly Olynyk, 7-0, PF/C, Gonzaga
No. 14 -- Utah Jazz -- Shabazz Muhammad, 6-6, SF, UCLA
No. 15 -- Milwaukee Bucks -- Giannis Adetokoubo, 6-9, SF/PF, Greece
No. 16 -- Dallas Mavericks from Boston) -- Lucas Nogueira, 7-0, PF/C, Brazil
No. 17 -- Atlanta Hawks -- Dennis Schroeder, 6-2, PG, Germany
No. 18 -- Atlanta Hawks -- Shane Larkin, 6-0, PG, Miami
No. 19 -- Cleveland Cavaliers -- Sergey Karasev, 6-7, SG/SF, Russia
No. 20 -- Chicago Bulls -- Tony Snell, 6-7, SG/SF, New Mexico
No. 21 -- Utah Jazz -- Gorgui Dieng, 6-11, C, Louisville
No. 22 -- Brooklyn Nets -- Mason Plumlee, 7-1, PF, Duke
No. 23 -- Indiana Pacers -- Solomon Hill, 6-7, SF, Arizona
No. 24 -- New York Knicks -- Tim Hardaway, Jr., 6-6, SG, Michigan
No. 25 -- LA Clippers -- Reggie Bullock, 6-7, SG, North Carolina
No. 26 -- Minnesota Timberwolves -- Andre Roberson, 6-7, SF, Colorado
No. 27 -- Denver Nuggets -- Rudy Gobert, 7-2, C, France
No. 28 -- San Antonio Spurs -- Rudy Gobert, 7-2, C, France
No. 29 -- Oklahoma City Thunder -- Livio Jean-Charles, 6-8, F, France
No. 30 -- Phoenix Suns - Nemanja Nedovic, 6-4, PG, Serbia
