2011 NBA Draft Order: Clippers, Lakers Don't Pick Until Second Round

Now that the draft lottery has concluded, with the Cavaliers' winning the first overall pick with their 2.8% chance selection from the Clippers in the Baron Davis trade, the 2011 NBA Draft order is fully set. Cleveland has the top pick as well as the fourth pick, and the Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz pick second and third, respectively. For the local teams, however, this year's NBA draft doesn't figure to provide any impact talent. Both the Clippers and Lakers are without first round picks.

The Clippers don't select until the 37th pick, the seventh pick of the second round. They also pick 47th overall. The Clippers received contributions last season from 2010 first-round picks Eric Bledsoe and Al-Farouq Aminu, and second-round pick Willie Warren even saw time in 21 games.

The Lakers don't pick until the 41st selection, but they have four total second-round picks. They also pick 46th, 56th, and 58th. In the 2010 draft, the Lakers selected Derrick Caracter and Devin Ebanks in the second round, and both saw time with the two-time defending champions, though the rookies combined for only 333 minutes in purple and gold.

The 2011 NBA Draft is scheduled for June 23 in New Jersey.
