2011 NBA Draft Order: Full Look At 1st Round

It won't make up for losing LeBron James last summer, but the Cleveland Cavaliers have the first pick of the 2011 NBA Draft. The Cavaliers' original first-round pick was slotted fourth overall in the NBA Draft Lottery, but a first-rounder they acquired from the Clippers jumped all the way to the top despite only a 2.8 percent chance of that happening.

Here is a look at the full 2011 NBA Draft order for the first round with the lottery now in the books:

1. Cleveland Cavaliers (via Los Angeles Clippers)

2. Minnesota Timberwolves

3. Utah Jazz (via New Jersey Nets)

4. Cleveland Cavaliers

5. Toronto Raptors

6. Washington Wizards

7. Sacramento Kings

8. Detroit Pistons

9. Charlotte Bobcats

10. Milwaukee Bucks

11. Golden State Warriors

12. Utah Jazz

13. Phoenix Suns

14. Houston Rockets

15. Indiana Pacers

16. Philadelphia 76ers

17. New York Knicks

18. Washington Wizards (from Atlanta Hawks)

19. Charlotte Bobcats (from New Orleans Hornets)

20. Minnesota Timberwolves (from Memphis Grizzlies)

21. Portland Trail Blazers

22. Denver Nuggets

23. Houston Rockets (from Orlando Magic)

24. Oklahoma City Thunder

25. Boston Celtics

26. Dallas Mavericks

27. New Jersey Nets (from Los Angeles Lakers)

28. Chicago Bulls (from Miami Heat)

29. San Antonio Spurs

30. Chicago Bulls

It is expected that the Cavaliers will select Kyrie Irving with the first overall pick. After that there could be a run on big men, which would be bad news for the Pistons, who will likely look at drafting a post player.
