Nets Select Derrick Favors With Third Pick

Making one of tonight’s many rumors official, the New Jersey Nets selected Georgia Tech forward Derrick Favors with the third overall pick of the 2010 NBA Draft. Only John Wall (of Kentucky) and Evan Turner (of Ohio State) were drafted ahead of the Atlanta-area product.

Another rumor is that the Nets drafted Favors because he was the most valuable trade chip available with the third pick, so stay tuned to see if they hold onto him or swap him with a team in need of some size and defensive intensity.
