All-Time Best Draft Picks by Actual Round: Part 2

    
June 26th, 2007

With just two rounds, the current NBA Draft isn’t like it used to be. At times in the past, the Draft lasted into the 20th round. Even more surprising is that some guys drafted that late made NBA rosters. In fact, 1958 15th round pick Adrian Smith actually made an all-star game..

This is part two of Jon Teitel's All-Time Draft Pick Recap. Part One Features the First Round.
