Draft ’07

The 2007 draft went pretty much as predicted- Oden and Durant went up top; meanwhile the Hornets didn’t end up with Thaddeus Young as many mocks suggested; instead their first round pick was Julian Wright out of Kansas with the 13th pick.

Wright has plenty of upside, and plays a position the Hornets have a hole at defensively (SF) meaning he could see some time this year even in pressure situations.

You can check out NBA.com’s highlights of New Orleans’ pick right here. Additionally, he is known to have an interest in bowling; maybe he can challenge a certain recent Rookie of the Year PG some time during the season.
